Default Ford guys, 1994 Probe GT no start symptom...

This POS is pissing me off, I hate these cars lol...

Ok this is a friends car, he had me put a new cap and rotor on the dist. I changed the condensor also. Car started and ran fine for ten mins, shut it off and wouldnt start again. I checked fuel pump(was replaced a few months ago), the cutoff switch for the pump was bypassed(switch was junk). I threw a new fuel filter on it, no change. I hit it with a squirt of ether and it fired right up... I checked spark while cranking and it looks really weak, red/orange color.

I know these cars are known for distributor problems, I think Im going to do the GM HEI module deal on it. If you use ether it will start everytime and runs good after starting. I drove it for a half hour with no problems other than a no start.

Does it sound like the spark is too weak to light it off while its turning over? I figured since ether is more volatile it has enough spark to light that but not the gas.

Any ideas are appreciated, Im tired of fuckin with it!


Oh btw the fuel pump doesnt seem like its priming when you turn the ign switch to "run". If you jump the fuel pump wire in the diagnostic box the pump runs but car still wont start...


Thanks for any insight!

I knew a girl back in high school who drove one, that POS got us stranded one day when we were out in the country cruising around. That girl could suck a dick like it was her job and swallow every last drop! Thanks Mazda!!!!

Hey Stanley, I gotcha for sure! Ive put new axles, wheelbearings, balljoints, struts, fuelpump, filter, throttlebody and fans in this fuckin worthless pile of shit in one year! It has all kinds of electrical problems also... This is the 2.5 v6, 5speed. Runs real good when it DOES run that is...lol Im gonna get the parts in the morning and throw a module in it. If any of the chinese parts stores have a MSD Blaster 2 coil in stock Im gonna convert it to external coil while Im at it... FoMoCo's way of fixin it is to put a whole new distributor in it... $277 for a chinese reman distributor!


Oh yeah, this damn thing aint mine! LMAO Ya couldnt give me one of these dog turds!

You must be working on the last one in existence, I haven't seen one of those since about 98
