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!

try replacing the big black box with all the wires going to it that is where the fuel pump relay is if u tap it it should start
