SOURCE: Sunroof removal

I took mine off. I did rip about a inch on the carpet trying. There are 7 plastic fasteners that you need to pop off (used a long flat screwdriver). Once you take it off, you will see the 4 bolts under the sunroof that are on the bracket. You do not need to take of the tracking rail to remove the sunroof. Not too hard, just gotta try.

SOURCE: Want to replace fron in 93 ford probe

1993 is a split year, if you have charging ports are a little bigger than the size of a tire valve stem then u have R12, if they are big then you have R134, most all Ford in 93 use R12. In the picture are adapters for a retrofit to R134, these screw on an R12 port, note the large cap R134 cap on the end of the adapter.

SOURCE: firing order

for the 1993 probe i could only find a 2.5 V6. there are two banks of cylinders, odd and even. in other words as you stand in front of the vehicle the odd bank is toward the firewall, the even bank is closest to you.
the number one cylinder is on the passenger side toward the firewall and firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6. hope that helps

Check the starter soleniod. The soleniod may be worn internaly and sticking in the start mode. Best thing is to replace soleniod.

Replace themostst


Hello ,

The thermostat is located on the right side of the engine looking in,between the intake manifold and the air filter box, underneath the wiring. This is in a 1994 Ford Probe GT 6 cylinder.

To replace the thermostat, you really need to remove the intake manifold and this can be up to two or three hours work alone, even for a qualified mechanic.

It is in the housing at the engine end of the upper rad hose. When replacing it make sure the spring on the thermostat is toward the engine.

NOTE: Remove the air intake box so you can see below. There is a pipe running right into the bell housing where the thermostat is housed. There is one bolt that you need to remove (it is to the right,below the distributor) Then there are the other 12 mm bolts on the bell of the thermostat housing to remove. After removing those the thermostat should be able to come right out.

Thank you, hope this helps you out.

P3400 - What is the corrective action to take?


DTC P3400 - Cylinder Deactivation System

It most certainly is not normal for one cylinder to shut off. I would think it would have to be one of the MDS cylinders, which are 1, 4, 6, or 7. Here is what he shop manual says about DTC, P3400. In any case, you're still under waranty, so I'd let the dealer worry about it. If it is a solenoid problem, the intake manifold has to come off. In any case, it shouldn't require a major engine teardown. Let us know what they find.

P3400-MDS RATIONALITY BANK 1
For a complete wiring diagram Refer to Section 8W.
Theory of Operation
When all criteria has been met, power is supplied to each MDS Solenoid when the engine is making a transition
from 8 cylinder mode to 4 cylinder mode. By actuating the solenoid, oil pressure is raised to the pair of lifters that
coincide with each particular solenoid. The oil pressure pushes in the locking pins that allows the lifter to collapse,
decoupling the valves and camshaft.
² When Monitored:
Transition from 4 to 8cylinder mode.
² Set Condition:
O2 sensor readings on Bank 1 side indicate a lean condition while in 4 cylinder mode.
Possible Causes
INSUFFICIENT OIL PRESSURE ACTING ON THE LIFTER LOCKING PINS
OIL PASSAGES RESTRICTED
LIFTER
MDS SOLENOID
Always perform the Pre-Diagnostic Troubleshooting procedure before proceeding (Refer to 9 - ENGINE -
DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING).
Diagnostic Test
1. ACTIVE DTC
NOTE: Diagnose any Deactivation or Oil Pressure DTCs before continuing with this test.
Ignition on, engine not running.
With a scan tool, read DTCs.
Is the DTC active at this time?
Yes >> Go To 2
No >> Refer to the INTERMITTENT CONDITION Diagnostic Procedure.
Perform the POWERTRAIN VERIFICATION TEST. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE - STANDARD PROCEDURE)
2. MDS SOLENOID 1
Turn the ignition off.
Remove the Intake Manifold per Service Information.
Turn the ignition on.
With the scan tool actuate the MDS Solenoid 1.
Can you feel and hear the Solenoid Actuating?
Yes >> Go To 3
No >> Remove the Solenoid and check for any debris that may be blocking the oil passages to the Solenoid.
If the passages are clogged, clean the passages and replace the MDS Solenoid 1. If the passages are
not clogged with debris, replace the MDS Solenoid 1.
Perform the POWERTRAIN VERIFICATION TEST. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE - STANDARD PROCEDURE)
LX ENGINE ELECTRICAL DIAGNOSTICS 9 - 915
3. MDS SOLENOID 7
With the scan tool actuate the MDS Solenoid 7.
Can you feel and hear the Solenoid Actuating?
Yes >> Go To 4
No >> Remove the Solenoid and check for any debris that may be blocking the oil passages to the Solenoid.
If the passages are restricted, clean the passages and replace the MDS Solenoid 7. If the passages are
not clogged with debris, replace the MDS Solenoid 7.
Perform the POWERTRAIN VERIFICATION TEST. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE - STANDARD PROCEDURE)
4. OIL PASSAGES RESTRICTED
Turn the ignition off.
Remove both Solenoids on Bank 1 of the engine block.
Remove the Bank 1 Cylinder Head per Service Information.
Remove the Lifters from the left engine bank.
Inspect the oil passages to the Solenoids and from the Solenoids to the lifters.
Are the passages blocked?
Yes >> Clean the oil passages as necessary. If the entire engine is restricted disassembly of the entire engine
block may be necessary.
Perform the POWERTRAIN VERIFICATION TEST. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE - STANDARD PROCEDURE)
No >> Replace both sets of lifters if no other possible causes remain.
Perform the POWERTRAIN VERIFICATION TEST. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE - STANDARD PROCEDURE

Hope helps.
