Question about 1994 Ford Probe
I've seen this with several vehicles within the mid 90s (including a 95 probe) and traced it back each time to the electronic ignition. As the car drives, the ignition coil heats up and becomes more resistive. As this happens, the coil outputs less voltage until finally it's not enough to put out sufficient spark to fire the cylinders.
Try this: Drive the car around for a while. When you start feeling the motor struggle, park somewhere and idle until it dies. Then quickly pop the hood, pull an ignition wire, pop in an extra plug and hold near the block (check for fuel leaks first!!) and observe the spark strength. If it looks weak, a new electronic ignition unit will solve your problem.
