1997 Ford Probe Problems

Engine Runs Rough, Stalls, Hesitates on Acceleration, Hard Starting, Poor Performance

If the engine runs rough, stalls, hesitates on acceleration, is hard to start, or has generally poor performance, this can be caused by a cracked or broken air inlet tube. Loose clamps on the air tube can also cause this these problems. Tightening the air inlet tube, or replacing if broken, should correct the problem.

Head Lights may Open and Close on their own, or may Operate Erratically

Water corroding the head light actuator connector can cause the head lights to open and close on their own, or operate erratically. Replacing the head light actuator motor should fix this problem.

Fuel cutoff light

The fuel cutoff light came on and it came to a complete stop and will not restart. Tried resetting the switch and it wasn't tripped. I have no clue whats going on with it.

107k and runnin great thanks to the Mazda engine. Also not cramped like a civic. Nice arm room instead of being scrunched.
