I'v put four starters on this 1992 Ford Tempo in the last three months. Am I just buying bad starters or is there something bigger wrong?

1992 Ford Tempo Question: Four starters in three months what's wrong?

To answer your question accurately, I would have to know how the starters are failing- mechanically or electrically. Have you closely inspected the flexplate for damaged teeth? Are the cables tight and corrosion free? I have seen repeat failures due to poor quality parts. You may try another brand.
