Change the module on the side of the distributor. it was a common problem in the 1990 era.

make sure to do a fuel pressure test and the presure should stay at 35 psi even after turning ingition off the pressure must to be at least 25 to 30 psi for a few minutes, if it goes to cero or close to it, after turning ignition on then you might need a neww fuel pump installed on it

1992 ford f-150 cranks wont start


I believe that motor still uses a distributor cap, rotor, and seperate coil...it has to be no spark...inspect the cap and rotor for hairline cracks...remove the coil, (Connected to center wire on distributor cap) and have tested...Hope this helps.

My 1992 Ford Tempo won't start. It acts like it wants to start by turning over but there is no catch to fire it up. So far the alternator, harmonic balancer, fuel pump, plugs,distributor and filters...


...the harmonic balancer was replaced? I hope that was not in relation to your vehicle not starting - if it was, that was a waste of money. The first three things to check for are fuel, air, and spark.
You need to test if the spark is making it to the end of the spark plug - can be done by removing a plug and placing it in the wire - and setting it near something that it can arc to. Just don't zap yourself.
Next, check for fuel pressure.
Check for a clogged air intake system or dirty air filter.

After than you'd check for compression - by putting a compression gauge in to a spark plug port. If the compression is low or off by 25% in one cyl from the different ones, this is an issue.

My first suggestion would be to give it a tune up new plugs and wires and rotor cap also fuel filter and air filter this would remove any dought of small issues such as air fuel and spark!

Need help changing out the spark plugs and Distributor Cap


just make sure that you have the gap for the spark plugs set for your vehicle. You will find these specs on the emissions sticker under the hood, Make sure that when you put on your new distributor cap that you install the spark plug wires in the proper firing order or the vehicle will not run
