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.

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.

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.
