Distributor is placed wrong for timing
take cap off unbolt distributor lift enough to turn rotor place back dont bolt litely just enough to hold distributor down without it poping up on you
place cap back on
now you need manual start and kill switch up in engine compartment turn vehicle over with manual starter switch if runs rough turn distributor till sounds good now time it with radar gun tighten bolts the rest of the way

now for what i described this has a margin of error going 1 to 3 notches to time in either direction from front to back or back to front turning of the distributor rotar
i hope i had made some sense hereford probe won't start - e695f1c.jpg
or counter clockwise the lifting distributor and turning rotor one tooth to engine crank this is timeing

My ford probe gt was going down the road, died as i was driving it. will not start


You will need to find out if you lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed.
Let me know if you need more info.

Just bought 1991 Ford Probe lx v6 won't start


If you have spark and fuel (either via the injectors or spraying fluid into the intake), and still no evidence of firing, it suggests your valvetrain may not be working. If the valves can't open, the fuel cant get into the cylinder.

Do (or have done) a compression test. You may have a broken timing belt/chain.

93 v6 probe gt will not start


These V6's are notorious for bad distrbutors. They get hot and a circuit opens and the engine loses spark. Buy a new or one with a warranty. Used ones have the same problem....

Dies after starting


Sound like the faulty diode on the Distributor which is a common problem on the '93 up to '94 and half V6 Probes. Never was recalled but should have been. Pop in a new Distributor from a mazda or ford and you're golden if that is the problem. My t distributor was a mazda but made by mitsubishi. Go figure, both are excellent Japanese car companies.

1995 Ford Probe sputtering, dying. Won't start now.


This to me sounds like it could be the fuel pump but first I would check the simpler solution and make sure your alternator is good because if your started turns over fine but the car wont start the next part to check would be for me the alternator.
