That is the biggest drawback for me as well. Also the parts, Ford will charge you a arm and a leg for them. Good thing Mazda is still making the 626, I go there for cheaper parts.Example wheel hub at Ford $280.00 at Mazda $67.00.
It's insane, but it's true. Every time something mechanical breaks. I don't call Ford I call Mazda. Check this out 1 chrome swirl wheel from Ford for a 96-97PGT $748.00 a peice. Now thats just plain crazy.
I've only had three problems with mine. AC pulley burnt up on me , had to replace passenger side ball joint. Replaced the drivers side head light motor.Now it has 119,000mi on it. Time to start looking for a KL-ZE or buy a rebuilt 2.5L.
Id say probably #1 lack of aftermarket support... I had to buy an extra set of taillights and have someone turn them into euroclears cuz theres not one company that makes these for our cars.
#2 Lack of respect in magazins like Street Sport and Sport Compact Car and on the street as well. Seems like everything is about those ugly Hondas...
#3 its a little too small for me sometimes (being 6-3...), and putting someone on the back seat? Not a chance...
but no matter what happens I LOVE MY PROBE(S)
My biggest problem is I have a hard time finding info on my car. I am kind of a new Probe owner, and would like to learn more about the mechanical specs for the car and all that good stuff, but it seems like the Probe never existed. I think Ford should put up something on their site that at least commemorates the car!
Has anyone noticed that when something breaks, aftermarket parts usually come out cheaper than factory parts. I get a better product at a lower price.
My Borla exhaust. I have had mine for almost 3 years now. Summit had a big overstock at the time,...$265 shipped if I can remember right. All because I backed into a curb and totally wrecked the whole exhaust. Midas wanted 450!
My shocks and springs. It was time to replace them. Sears and Ford wanted like 650 for them. I got Eibachs and KYB's...the whole thing was about 400 installed.
Has anyone replaced the helical transmission gears with straight cut ones? 5th gear has been popping into neutral for me lately and it needs to be replaced so I figured I could go all out with straight cut ones.

I replaced the distributor and forgot to mark or check where everything was positioned before doing so. Do I need to completely reset the timing? Or is there a way to simply just set the timing of the distributor? If I end up having to reset the timing completely can I find TDC by removing the...
My 94 probe gt 2.5 manual when I bought it had issues accelerating after stopping. It stalls and sputters an it usually only seems to do it once the engine is warmed up. The only way I can get it going is to feather the gas pedal once I get in 2nd gear its pretty smooth from there if I just...
