1996 Ford Probe SE 2.0L 16v DOHC I4 from North America
A cheap semi sports car that handles like a dream, but could use some more ponies under the hood
Tune up at 60,000. Engine Started Skipping.
Fuel Pump at 60,000.
Mass airflow sensor at 70,000.
Power window switch Broke at 75,000
Radiator started leaking at 80,000.
The car will handle like a German sports car. The engine is dull and could use some more pones under the hood. Seats are well bolsterd and keep you in place for high performance driving, but lack lumbar support for long trips and are rather hard. Back seat is for small children only and is a pain to access. I like the cars design and interior it gives it a sports car feel with the black on tan interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1996 Probe Se. 160,000 miles. 4 cylinder. When I have it in neutral it wants to die. I have changed the spark plugs and put a new fuel filter on it, but it still wants to die. What can I do?

Simply you need to change the gasket, then it will be good.

Apart from the fact that you are replying to a comment that was posted seven years ago, a typical car engine has at least a dozen or more gaskets, so saying "simply change the gasket" is of little to no help!
