car trembles and wont move

Hi all, I have a 97 6cyl probe and its like I don’t have it cause its been at the repair shop for more that 2 months and they still cant find the problem. Basically it’s misfiring and trembles when ever I push gas and wont move just shakes and sometimes fuel cut of light appears. My mechanic has tried a lot of things…last he checked the computer and it was ok, and I don’t know much about cars except how to drive them so any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Now I regret for buying this car because it seams that this car has a lot of “mysterious problems”. And not one mechanic knows this car here in Brisbane

Re: car trembles and wont move

There is nothing overly mysterious about the Ford Probe mechanically. All the car's mechanicals are Mazda 626/MX6/Telstar sourced and there were plenty of these sold for you to find someone who knows what they are doing.
If your looking for more DIY advice try XOOPS Site - News maintence sections & introduce yourself on the Aussie section when your there.

Re: car trembles and wont move

Thanks but when it comes to fixing cars I’m clueless so I think I’ll leave it to my mechanic but its frustrating cause I’ve had some problems before with it and from what I could gather from the net this car can become a huge problem, which is what I got, anyways wish me luck.

funny every1 told me not to buy this car

Re: car trembles and wont move

My gut feel is it will be the leads; get yourself & the car to a Mazda / Telstar specialist. Its not that hard!
People make excuses because there are less than 2,000 in Australia but mechanically these cars are pretty standard; they do like their maintenance i.e. service regularly.
