Hi

Might not be related to the fuel but in fact the air mass sensor, thing is the car has to have the right mix of air to fuel and at times the code can come back as a fuel fualt when in fact it is a lack of air not to much fuel.

I would look at the air mass sensor, give it a clean with some carb spray, dont touch it physically just spray it leave it dry natuarally then refit, the part is located off the air pipe, black air pipe with a wire and sensor going into it. its an easy job to do your self, might not cure it completely but if you see an improvement then at least you know what part you need, they cost about £40 max

Regards
Dan

How do I find out if the fuel filter is clogged in my 05 Turbo PT Cruiser? After running out of gas (and now with a full tank) the engine starts up great drives for several miles then chokes up and dies. ...


run the fault codes and check for canister purge valve solenoid fault . IF the filter is blocked it stays blocked . What you have is a problem that when the engine requires sufficient fuel there isn't enough and so it dies . After stopping what ever is causing the shortage is relaxed and so it starts and goes until the problem unit is activated again (Vacuum in the fuel tank)

Check for a plugged fuel filter. If that is OK, then it is probably a bad fuel pump. Once it cools down. then it starts to work again.

93 Ford Probe won't start, possible fuel pump?


Fuel filters are cheap (less than $20.00 for the premium filter at Napa) and easy. If you've never changed it, you should do it anyway. It would at least make sure that it's not the filter if the problem still exists. On the bonus, you've got a new fuel filter.

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.

A fuel pump is not the problem, they either work or not, u are most likely having a loose of ignition spark, possible ignition module.

1993 (2.0l 4 cyl) Ford Probe Wont Idle when warm.


Josh, Did you output the car's diagnostic codes before you reset the computer?
Just to confirm: your car has the "FS" engine - 1991cc double overhead cams?
built on the Mazda "GE" platform?
does your car have an "engine check light" or "MIL" on the dashboard? if so where and what does it look like and what does do ? ie: comes on when ignition is turned on & goes out after engine starts. or comes & goes out after x seconds. etc etc
are you 5sp manual or auto trans?

does your car have a diagnostic plug with a flip open lid just behind the battery near the front left suspension tower?

94 Ford Probe GT Fuel Cutout problem


VERY Probable! You need to get that Probe to a Mechanic and have it Diagnosed. You can also Purchase a Diagnostic tool for the Computer at Any Good Auto Parts Store and Try this yourself! This is Most Definitally a Computer Error Code Problem.

I have a 1993 Ford Probe GT. As I was driving, the engine suddenly died without warning. It wouldn't start again. After waiting a few minutes, it did start. Now I have only been able to get it started...


Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?
