96 Probe Performance Decrease after inspection
My original automatic 96 Ford Probe was running fine until I have to get it inspected. It failed emissions and I was told to change the one oxygen censor. So I did. IT failed emissions again. Next suggestion was to change the engine's computer. After much searching I found another automatic 96 Probe in a junkyard and ripped the computer out. I install it in mine and it passed emissions.
But now my car has a serious decrease in performance. It struggles severely when first accelerating. It is extremely hard to get going up a hill with the AC on. Luckily when you get up to about 45mph + it seems to handle ok.
I think I may just have a bad computer, but I don't want to spend the money for a new one if that's not going to fix the problem. So any suggestions?
Also could anyone tell me the model number of the computer I would need if I need to buy a new one? And will any other year probe computer's work?
