Re: swapping a 1997 engine into a 1995

Possibly the old distributor will have to be installed too.

Re: Power steering cooling pipe

When it happened to me I simply connected the return pipe to the other side of the reservoir, not quite as easy as it sounds though. Also, I was surprised at how hot the system runs , so be careful. The very position of the cooling pipe makes it a 'big' job to get access to replace it. My intention ...

Re: 24V Hesitation

Have you tried spraying WD40 over all of the plug leads , especially where they all bunch up together ?
Or, looking under the bonnet when it is really dark , just look for blue sparks anywhere !

Re: Need some serious help please

Lovely news Bob, really pleased it's fixed.
Well done for pursuing the crank sensor as the reason for failure.
In the end though, that was 'mechanical' failure rather than any 'electronic' component and just shows how important it is to get everything back together perfectly.

Re: Need some serious help please

Well done on your diagnostics, it certainly points to that CPS2 as being the problem.
Strange it should fail though , it only generates a 'pulse' as the 'blade' moves through the gap. Generally a pretty rugged device.
Fingers crossed.

Re: Need some serious help please

External coil details posted off to Tomcat yesterday.
That's it, I have no copies.
I was always able to get working spares for the '94 Probe so never had to resort to the external version but definitely the way to go.

Re: Need some serious help please

It would be interesting to know if ANYONE in the club is running a Probe with the external coil + igniter system installed ? Anyone, please reply with your experience. That said , mostly we all agree that distributor failure is caused by two situations. 1/ The absurdly small relay contacts in the Bo...

Re: Need some serious help please

You've got me thinking about the immobiliser now ! This is from the '94 Bosch System Arming/Disarming words. NOTE : Due to the rolling code security feature, the immobiliser will not respond if the remote control button is pressed 255times while out of range of the receiver. To restore the remote co...
