most people run into the problem a getting a belt but then think that the belt is too big for the pulley system. You need to look at it and see where it needs to go. if a pulley has groves on it then the grooved Sid of the belt lays in the grooves. There are also smooth pulleys. These are where you adjust the tension of the belt and so you can get the belt on. there should be 2 smooth one on the probe but only one moves and that should be the top one. You will need a rachet with I believe a 3/4" head to put in to the square hole in the metal arm that connects to the tension pulley. perferably a tourqe rachet. You'll need to find the proper tension somewhere else though. But follow the tension pulley arm up to where it is mounted to the engine. There will be a single bolt that you'll need to loosen, do not take it out just loosen it, then you will be able to move the tension pulley enough to fit the belt on. After the belt is on make sure that you have ran it properly. To do this just follow the belt around and make sure that there is no contact of any surface to the belt besides the pulleys. after that is done take the 3/4" rachet and place it into the arm to tighten the tension pulley. Some people might need an extra person for this especially if this is a first for you. One to adjust the tension and the other to tighten the nut on the mounting bracket.
Should be the pulley just above the crankshaft pulley
Not directly, no.

Yes, the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine in a 1996 Ford Probe is an interference engine ( according to the Gates website , they make timing belts etc. )
In middle of crankshaft pulley
on a 2.0L engine. no
Yes , according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 2.0 liter four cylinder engine in a 1996 Ford Probe ( is an interference engine )
The engine coolant drain plug in the 1996 Ford Probe 4-cylinder is located at the bottom end of the radiator. There is a coolant reservoir at the top of the engine as well.
The water pump pulley is the pulley right above the crank pulley (the big pulley in the bottom of the engine.) Right above the water pump pulley should be the alternator pulley, which drives the alternator. I'm guessing the water pump is behind the WP pulley. == == == ==
Ford Probe was created in 1989.
probably not being that the engine in the escort was manufactured by ford and 2 liter in the probe was manufactured by Mazda
According to the manual, 7.9 quarts.

If you go to a junk yard it would be around $20-50. I bought on e for a 1996 probe for $15
