Question about 1997 Ford Probe

1 Answer

Mondeo '97 2.0 petrol wont start. Unusually had the aircon on for the whole day before if thats anything. Have checked fuses and removed the connectors from black box above/next to accelerator for 30mins, the static route. Hav ignition lights and wont turn over. Have had some minor probs in last month am 'guessing' not connected but here goes. Had a bump rear o/side corner and cracked the bumper back in Jan. Rear o/s bulb holder had a short and works fine now taken out reversing light bulb(?). Speedo drops and fuel light pops on/off. Am thinking (again a guess) the coil pack may need replacing as it can feel powerless and stuttery around 2000 revs. HT leads/plugs (motorcraft) replaced 15000miles ago. Car has covered 58k.Until 2yrs ago car had been garaged, was my dads. Any advice greatly appreciated Regarrds Ray

Scanning the onboard computer will probably reveal one or more problems. Probably the fastest way to resolve your issues.
If you have a chain auto parts store in your area, they will often scan it free of charge.
