1993 Ford Tempo Question: car wont start
Answer #1DaveJHM November 01, 2010, 00:54Master
Sorry to hear about your vehicle troubles. Unfortunately a crank-no-start issue on a Tempo is not terribly rare.
Fortunately, they are quite repairable. I am thinking either a TFI ignition module (Thick Film Ignition -- mounted on the distributor...very common for failure...) causing a loss of spark, or a fuel pump failure, causing a loss of fuel to the engine.
A reputable shop should be able to assist easily. Here's a link to some in your area. Good luck!
