I have a 1991 Probe GL with 253 K miles ( LOVE my car) and the seat belt finally got stuck for good, on passenger side . Am I still eligible for the recall repair that I noted on your website, or is it a bit late? Would like to know before I start attempting repairs myself.

when you floor the gas the car hesitates put on new mass air flow sensor and cold air intake and got less but it still hesitates , change the plugs to split fires still a little hesitation when you floor it. Starts great high rpm right off then steadily drops to 3-500 and stays perfect. If you hammer the pedal down it hesitates for a sec. In neutral. If your racing it power band is fine but at low end of each gear it hesitates then goes l. Its fast still just got this small hesitation when it goes wide open. I was thinking upgrade in ignition or throttle body but to confused. What's wrong?
Wont start in the morn. After 5 to 35 minutes will start. Often drags down battery.

my probe only goes in reverse and wondering if i need a whole new transmission
My probe decided it was only to stop working one day while i was driving. I let it set for a couple days then turned it on and decided to see if it was drive. It drives great but wont go passed 30 mph. There is a netting at the bottom of the engine that has a hole in it. If i get that fixed will that fix my problem? also how much will that cost me and what is that part called?

my brothers car stalled and would not start, I found when I pulled the distributor cap off it was not turning so I pulled the timing belt cover off and found the pulley bolt broken. I found this after he tried push starting , he said it was running fine then stalled at a red light, ran the battery dead trying to start car and had someone try to push start the manual transmission car, is there going to be piston or valve damage now? is this a problem anyone else has heard of? please tell me if I should start looking for a used engine or is it salvageable?
1995 Ford Probe: Passenger headlight does not go up when lights are on; driver side goes up and down? What can it be?
How do I remove the Transmission
At the smog test, I was told the EGR valve failed the visual because there was no vacuum (all the test #'s were good). I took it to my local small-town mechanic shop and they changed the EGR valve (for $500) and when I went back for the retest, he said he wouldn't charge me for the test because he said it had the same problem - no vacuum to the EGR valve. Now I am out $'s and don't know where to go from here. Help?
middle plug in front cylinder does not fire or fires intermitenly
just happened overnight, ran fine before.
how can i be sure to replace timing belt correctly when i replace head gasket?
I have a 97 Probe GTS that I can't get to start. No error codes on ODB2 tester. It turns over, plugs fire and get fuel. Engine has compression. New distributor, plugs, plug wires (firing order set per manual). I pulled the crank shaft censor out, cleaned it and did a basic magnetic test on it. It "seems" to be working, however I don't know what voltage readings it should be sensing/sending. Spraying ether into the intake produces a backfire fire out the intake, but nothing to the cylinders. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
My 95 probe will start and idle fine and when it has warmed up it will idle at about 1100 rpms. If i put it into gear soon after i start it, it is fine. Once the car warms up and i put it into gear it dies. The last thing I tried is I rev'd the engine a few times and took my foot off the gas, and it dies. Any ideas? the car has done this now on two different occasions, after sitting for a period of time.
I turned on my heater a week ago and it is not putting out the heat that it did before -- I see that my temperature gauge is not coming up to normal temperature range even if I drive it for an extended period
