Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Ford Probe 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 127000 miles

My probe died while driving would turnover but wouldn't start so I changed the fuel pump and bypassed the inertia switch but will only start when starter fluid is sprayed into the throttle body. Turns over fine.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check and test the fuel pump relay-to include a fuel pressure check.

Inside your truck on the drivers side under the lining.(Lift up the board that hides the spare tire). Press that switch for your fuel pump to start working. If the car was hit hard enough on that side it will shut off the fuel pump. Learn that from a State Trooper that assisted me once. Good luck. Cynthia
