I think you better do some more narrowing as your V6 will not run on one cylinder.

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.

I have a 96 ford explorer v6 with a pushrod motor and after we replaced the pushrods, the head gaskets, the valve cover gaskets and the fuses, the car will not idle. what could be the problem?


Have you adjusted the pushrods properly? Pushrods generally need to be adjusted after installation.

Not sure how to do this on this model, although I own a 94 Ford Explorer with the V6 4.0 Liter motor.

Basically, when a gas engine doesn't run, you check 4 things, and narrow it down from there.

1. Gas (Is gas pressure good, is gas flow strong enough?)
2. Spark (are all spark plugs firing properly? Is spark strong enough)
3. Combustion at each cylinder (timing, pushrod adjustment)
4. Air Flow (MAF/MAP sensor working? Air Filter dirty?)

96 Probe GT. Fuel pump doesn't run when it should.


Does your car run? Some fuel pumps run quiet so you will need to get your ear close to the gas tank and have someone turn on the ignition. The pumps only run about 3 seconds when the ignition is turn on without starting the engine.

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.

94' Ford Probe Automatic Transmission fluid check question


The car needs to be running with the transmission warm, (drive around for at least 10 minutes) Place the car in neutral. Pull the stick wipe it off and place it back in the transmission. Reads just like an oil stick, want fluid in the safe range (checked pattern) area.

My car just wont start


when you changed the water pump you need to make sure you change the timing belt also, did you do this. check that your timming is correct.

the other problem is different,

I would check to see if you are getting fuel at the correct psi, then how do you know you are getting spark, did you pull the plug and see the fire when you got it near a ground. also are the plug still good. you could have damaged your plugs. Is the distributor cap with rotor, and wires new? are you getting air. have you checked the timing? This is where I would start.

Running problems with a 94 Ford Probe GT


check the fuel pressure, it should be over 40 PSI, also this can be caused by defective Mass Air Flow sensor or MAF for short, has your fuel filter been changed?if not it may be clogged.
