There is a high probability that my car will need to be repaired.

I am trying to rewrite the sentence above I created such that it does not use "that-clause". My example is as follows:

There is a high probability of my car needing to be repaired.

I know that the word "probability" can have two forms: "probability that" and "probability of". However, I could not find such usage as "a probability of needing".

You could say either of these:

There's a high probability my car is going to need to be repaired.

or

There's a high probability my car is going to need repairs.
