I had the same problem with a 1991 probe. Turned out to be the distributor shaft bearing was worn and no spark was coming out because the gap inside the distributor was too large. Disconnect 1 plug wire and Check for spark at the wire when turning over the engine. I usually just put a screwdriver in the end of the plugwire and lay it near something under the hood that is grounded. Then watch for spark when the engine is turned over.

i will check..but still when i turn key to the on position,the fuel pump will not come on.
...he accessories work so i would have to push start it to start.Now even when i push start it it wont start.The fuel cutoff light is on and i tried disconnecting the battery for atleast 10 min and reset...
Wont start in the morn. After 5 to 35 minutes will start. Often drags down battery.
it wont start unless i hold the gas to the floor then it starts but chugs then soothes out and runs fine hap...
it just wont turn over
my 1992 ford probe 2.2 wont stay running. It starts fast but only runs for about 5 sec then dies. The check engine light is on.Any RPM's I give it, it will only stay running a few sec
