Hi jbloco, few things can casue this problem. Basic things first. Check your ignition componants like , spark plugs, wires,cap,rotor(if applicable). If you car runs good off idle then your Idle air control valve might be bad.

SOURCE: check engine light on in a 1997 ford 150

you need to find out what diagnostic trouble code has been set in the computer related to the light being on. you can go to a car parts store and they will usually retrieve the code for free, idea being that you will then buy some parts to resolve the problem. you can but you are certainly not bound to. the federal govt has established guidelines about when the check engine light must be lit, the standard is that if a condition exists that would cause the vehicle to exceed 1.5 percent of emissions for that model of vehicle as built, then the light must be lit. the rules do not prevent the light coming on for other reasons, but it must be lit for that reason. because of that rule alot of the time when the light is on it has something to do with emissions. that can mean that something is going on with O2 sensor, egr valve, couple other things. O2 sensors do fail, the nature of how they operate and where they operate (in the hot exhaust stream) causes them to eventually fail. anyway thing to do is find out what code is set and proceed from there. hope that helps

Hello, my 1997 ford probe overheated and now it wont start, would you know the possible reasons why?

Duh. The first and most probably reason is that you fried the engine. Take it to a mechanic.

Ford probe keeps cutting out when engines hot

its not any thing to do with your air filter its either your thermostat or your radiator check the radiator and see if the over flow reservoir is full, if not then its your thermostat.
