1994 Ford Probe 24v 2.5 V6 24v petrol from UK and Ireland
Usual rear calipers siezing. Dizzy failed at 75,000, new plug leads at 85,000 miles, new front wheel bearings at 110,000 miles, exhaust at 90,000, two sets of discs, immobiliser tempramental, manifold gasket at 95,000.
Ford coughed up for the rear caliper replacement.
Responds well to Mobil One and oil changes at 5,000 miles rather than 10,000 - for the same engine in the MX6 Mazda recommends 9,000 mile service intervals. Ford UK technicians haven't got a clue when it comes to Probes!!!
Engine still sounds sweet at 115,000 miles!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
