Question about 1993 Ford Tempo

93 Ford Tempo, being finicky

Ok, I have a 93 ford tempo with 86,000 miles on it. I just replaced the right control arm bushing, and now it's picking when it wants to start.

It starts out fine when its cold, but when it starts to heat up (the gauge stays within normal, about above the r or m. but if I try to start it after it warmed up (i'm a delivery driver so it's alot of stopping and restarting) it will kinda click. the engine won't turn over, the headlights don't dim. it just clicks. if the car cools down about an hour or so, it will start again. >< please help!! (I already had someone check for the loose connections he said they're all secure.

I need a diagram of rear suspension on 1994 Ford Tempo


It's called a control arm. Sway bar is definitely not one of the names. The other two could be, but for different manufactures. And the parts look different. But have the same funtion.

How to fix a ball joint in a ford tempo


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The lower ball joint is integral to the lower control assembly and cannot be serviced individually. Any movement of the lower ball joint detected as a result of inspection requires replacement of the lower control arm assembly.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the nut and bolt securing the ball joint to the steering knuckle.
  4. Remove the nut and bolt securing the control arm to the vehicle sub frame. To install:
  5. Install the control arm assembly to the vehicle sub-frame using the nut and bolt. Tighten the nut to 69-86 ft. lbs. (93-117 Nm).
  6. Install the lower ball joint into the steering knuckle and secure it with the nut and bolt. Tighten the nut to 32-43 ft. lbs. (43-59 Nm).
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly and lower the vehicle.
  8. Road test the vehicle.

Timing chain does not need to be replaced like a timing belt. It will only need to be replaced if it starts making noise or causing problems

93 tempo


I had the same problem a few months back with my 93 Tempo. After fiddling with the battery, checking for spark, and messing with my distributor cap, I found the emergency fuel shut off reset button in the trunk. If you haven't already, open the trunk, and on the left hand side there is a recess with a largish red button. Press it. If it clicks, then your fuel injector shut off because it though it had been in an accident (mine happened right after pulling into my driveway, where I had bottomed out a little bit, so it doesn't take much to set it off). If it clicks, your car should start immediately
Hope it helps!
