SOURCE: Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.

It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.

SOURCE: i cant figure out how

Manual or automatic? If it is automatic it should have a dipstick (like the oil dipstick) that will let you check it. It will most likely be red and if I remember correctly on the passenger side of the car. If it is a manual checking your transmission isn't so easy. I've heard it said that your transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 50,000 miles or so but if it is still red and you're not having problems with it you should leave it alone (in my experience changing it a lot of times will just cause problems). If it is manual the transmission has two plugs on the side of the transmission (passenger side if I remember correctly). They both have a square insert in the middle of them that is the perfect size for the end of a regular size socket wrench. The plug on top is the "fill plug" and the one below is the "drain plug". First you remove the drain plug and let the fluid drain completely and be sure to clean the plug before putting back in. It should be magnetic to collect metal shavings that have ground up in the transmission. Once the transmission has been drained and the drain plug inserted back in. Remove the "fill plug" and use a fluid transfer pump to pump the new  transmission fluid from your container up into your transmission. When fluid starts to overflow from the fill plug you know the transmission is full and you can now put the fill plug back in. Be sure to be clean and check for any leaks around the transmission. Hope this helps. Be sure to let me know how it goes and if you need some more help. I probably made the process of changing your transmission fluid seem complicated but it really isn't so don't worry. Good luck!

Where is the thermastat located on a 89 ford tempo ?

After the car has been driven until warm,say 10 minutes,leave it
running and feel the hoses going thru the firewall to the heater,
there are 2 ,if they are both cold it needs a thermostat.
If one is hot and one is alot colder , it's the heater core.
If they are both hot it's a door on the inside.
Thermostat on the 2.3 (assuming) is at the engine end of the top
radiator hose,front of the head. Easy one

1990 ford tempo horn won't stop honking. need to know where it is so i can unplug it

You may find that you have a horn fuse if you do simply remove it other wise here it is.
The horn in my 1994 ford tempo is located behind the right front tire wheel well. (1) Remove the right front tire. (2)Remove the inside thick black cardboard protector(A lot of work)(3)Look up inside the fender. You will see 2 small horns.One marked high(h) and one marked low(l).
hope this helps....Good luck!
