Question about 1996 Ford Probe
My 96probe gt runs for awhile, about 25 miles once, its turned off it has a tendensity of not starting . In some cases it may start once it has set the next day
Hi, the first thing you should get looked at would be the oxygen sensor as this can cause the problem your having if your car runs great when its first started from cold but then plays up when it reaches temp then this is a good sign that the oxygen sensor is faulty.
But their are other things that can cause the problem your having such as bad fuel or blocked fuel filter it could be a number of things the first thing you should do is give it a quick service change the plugs and air and fuel filter then give it another try.
You may need the injectors checking one good thing to try is go to your nearest petrol station or car spares shop and buy a fuel line cleaner these come as a fuel additive and you just pour it into the tank, make sure you buy correct type ie petrol not diesel then give your car a good run for at least 30min or more to give the cleaner chance to work its way around the whole fuel system and you may find just doing this will solve your problem.
A good brand to buy is called Red X this often solves the kind of problem your having, if it makes a difference to your car then change the fuel filter and use the additive every 3 months or so this then ensures your car is running at its best and it also improves mpg.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
