Ford Probe Problems

Ticking Noise from Engine, Stalling, Rough Running, Reduced Engine Power

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 Runs Rough at Idle

The thermostat may allow the engine to run too cool, which will cause it to run rough at idle. Replacing the thermostat should fix this concern if the engine is running too cool.

Check Engine Light On, Hesitates Accelerating, Reduced Power, and Rough Idle

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.
