1993 Ford Tempo Problems

Engine Cranks, but will Not Start - No Fuel Pressure

Fuel pump failure can cause the engine to crank but fail to start. Diagnosis will show insufficient, or no fuel pressure, and fuel pump in the fuel tank will need to be replaced.

Clicking, Clanging Noise from Engine when Running

A defective crankshaft pulley can cause a clicking, or clanging noise from the engine when it is running. The center hub can become loose and the pulley should be replaced with the revised design.

Poor Idle, Engine Stalls, Hesitates on Acceleration

Sludge build up in the throttle body can cause a poor engine idle, stalling, and/or hesitation. The correction is to install a new idle air control valve spacer kit to prevent the sludge build up, set the base idle, and clean the throttle body.

1993 Ford Tempo Recalls

Ford Recalls 1992-1995 Models Due to Engine Fan Issue

Ford has recalled certain 1992-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models with 3.8L engines, 1994-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models with 3.0L engines, 1992-1994 Tempo and Mercury Topaz models with 3.0L engines, 1994 Tempo and Mercury Topaz models with 2.3L engines, and 1992-1994 Lincoln Continental models in certain cold weather states for an issue with the engine electric cooling fan. During high winds, low temperatures, and drifting snow, the fan could become blocked or frozen with snow. This could cause the fan not to rotate and ultimately overheat. Dealers will install a harness with a circuit breaker to protect the fan motor from overheating.
