I just got my 94 probe gt a week ago as well. I previously had a base model 93 probe and I have to say the car was very reliable. However when something does go wrong, it is very expensive to fix. So far though, I have had no problems with my gt with the exception of things wearing out, such as the muffler and A/C. But, good luck with yours!

I just bought a 1994 Ford Probe SE 4, manual transmission, 4 days ago. The next day, after stalling a few times because I'm not very skilled at driving a stick shift, the car stalled on me a few times at stop lights. At the end of the day, the battery was completely drained. I tried jump starting it, but it would charge for a little bit and then die again. So now it's in my back yard, can't start it. I also noticed a light that said, FUEL CUT-OFF, and I checked the owner's manual and pressed a button in the trunk that should make that light dissappear, but it's still on. So I'm going to buy a battery today and hopefully that's all I'll need to actually START driving my PROBE. Has anyone else had any problems with that FUEL CUT OFF light. It might possibly be the alternator also. The car is in really good shape, the previous owner took really goof care of it, and it has many features-so I definitely want to keep it.. but I'm scared that I might have bought a lemon???

I have a 94 SE, When I bought it 9 moths ago it was a gem. Now theres clunks in the wheel wells, the FUEL CUT OUT LIGHT is always on. I cannot vouch for the previous owner, but the car seems like it was well maintained. My latest problem is my acceleration dropping or the transmission slipping. DO NOT BUY ONE!

My Ford Probe GT V6 1994 just won't start at all when the temperature drops below 30 F.
It takes about 15-20 miniutes of cranking the engine before it will begin to fire and eventually start.
The fuel cut-out light comes on. After it has started the light goes off.
Is there anyone who can tell me whats wrong with this car.

My boyfriend has a 94 Ford Probe GT, and it is worthless. The paint is chipped all over the place. If you touch it wrong, more paint is gone.
The window rolls down on its own.
The fuel cut out light is on all the time, as well as the check engine light.
We have replaced the alternator 2 times in the past month, as well as the battery 2 times.
It's getting to be to much for us to deal with. He's constantly calling his boss to get a ride to work, because the "car" broke down again. I think it spends more time in the driveway than it does on the road.
I'm glad to see that we're not the only ones who have these problems with this exact car, and with as much money as we've put into it, I do think Ford should pay us back every penny of it, or replace our car with one that actually runs.

I have a 94 probe GT and I love it. I had the same problem with my lights on my gages. what ended up being the problem was the alternator belt, if the belt comes loose or breaks your gages go crazy and random lights come on. this same thing will happen if your alternator is going bad or you have a really powerful sound system with no capacitor. If you maintain your probe right it will rin very smooth and strong. and if you don't know about cars then don't buy one. they are very fun to drive, parts are really expensive.

I have had my Probe GT for 9 years. I bought it when I was 14 and I have ran the crap out of it.
After this year, I've been fixing it up. It has a new motor, brakes, muffler, lines, and I put about 5 grand in it. I top out at 130 miles an hour. This car was never that fast with the old stock stuff in it. But it never died on me.
I have a 93 SE; it's a piece of crap. One of the windows doesn't roll down, the seats are very crappy, but my wife likes it.
I really have nothing bad to say about the Ford Probe, I just think that sometimes car companies find ways to make things cheaper, and they break down a lot, so there's always something bad with every car.

Wow... that's amusing...probe...fast? I also just bought a 94 Probe. It's my back-up car so I don't have to drive my Celica GTS all the time, mainly in bad weather. The probe is NOT fast... a 15-16 sec 1/4 mile and 9-12 sec 0-60 speed is... well SLOW.
I do like the car however... It's fun to drive and gets good gas mileage.

I bought my Ford Probe GT a year ago. When I first got it, the computer was messed up, so I had to get the car rewired. Other than that, my car is perfect. Never had any problems starting it. The temps in NE are cold, sometimes single digits and my car has never failed to turn on and supply me heat.
Like a previous comment, cars brake. Some are cheaper made. Keep in mind that this car was created to replace the Mustang and make a cheaper easier produced car. If you're not satisfied, buy a Mustang then.

TO all of you who wants those nasty lights to disappear just study how the on board computer works. I already fixed the ABS, the airbags, the check engine, just with a piece of copper wire and link 2 connectors in the read out terminal under the hood, even with an LED you can read out the error code's then you look up on the web which code you have and how to solve the problem. Good luck.

I just bought a 93 Probe GT with a cold air intake and a nice loud exhaust, and I love it!!! It does need bodywork and new door panels, but the leather racing seats and the acceleration it gets in first gear all make up for it!!!

I have a 95 Probe GT and I love it!!! This is my second one and the car looks great. Very fun to drive!!
To all these people on here who say my car's falling apart, realize that you're driving a 14-15 year old car and things are bound to break!!!
People expect cars to last forever and they don't!!! All it takes is a little time and money to maintain it, and you will be fine.
I have 120,000 on mine, and put 500-600 miles on it every week, and it still gets up and goes with no problem. Like I say, if you want a muscle car then buy a Mustang, but if you want something for everyday that's fun to drive and not too bad on gas, then buy a Probe GT!!!
