1996 Ford Probe Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

If a buzzing noise is coming from the exhaust at different engine speeds and conditions, this is commonly caused by the heat shields on catalytic converters coming loose at points. The buzzing is the metal on metal contact. Installing a large worm clamp around the catalytic converter and heat shield assembly will prevent the noise and secure the shields.

Engine -- Verified

A defective oil pump can cause ticking noise from the engine, stalling, rough running, and reduced engine power. Replace the oil pump if this is found to be the cause.

Engine -- Verified

If the mass air flow sensor is not working properly, the Check Engine Light can come on, the engine can hesitate while accelerating, has reduced power, and a rough idle. Replacing the mass air flow sensor should fix this concern if the diagnostic trouble codes confirm the mass air flow sensor is the cause.

1996 Ford Probe Reviews

First off, I can only speak for the 5 speed GT. Really fun car to drive. Nice feel, good power and handling. Nice looker too. Always get looks at the stop light or kids wanting to race. Be prepared though, expensive to maintain. A good set of wires could run you over $100. Limited production and in my opinion, soon to be sought after classic.
