If I remember correctly, I think those tempo's had a fuel shut-off trip switch in case of collision. Look in rear drivers side trunk, and pull driver side panel off. You should see a switch in there with a plunger on top that you push down to reset. Worth a try.

87 ford tempo won't start except with starting fluid


Then you likely need to rep[lace the fuel pump, check the pressure at the test port on the top of the engine. If the pump is the problem you must drop the fuel tank to access it. Also change the filter if a new pump is needed.

Injector not working why put new injector new computer new fuel pump does it have injector relay 1987 celebrity


Check fuel pressure. Have you replaced the fuel filter on schedule? Verify that the fuel pump is getting power. Power goes through an in-line fuse, then the fuel pump relay or the oil pressure sensor. (The relay bypasses the oil pressure sensor while the engine starts, but fuel pump power goes through the sensor during normal run operation. If you lose oil pressure, the fuel pump is shut off to protect the engine.) On four-cylinder models, the fuse is in the fuse block (E PUMP 10)
The fuel injectors are connected to the ECM fuse on one side and straight to the engine computer on the other side. Check the connectors and wiring, especially at the injector.

No power to fuel pump car was running fine just quit repalced fuel pump no power to pump, car will start when spraying starting fluid in to intake, is there a fuse ? also replaced ECM, fuel filter,...


Check for 12 volts power at the fuel pump harness. If no power is going to the pump, check the fuel pump relay. Also, check the fuel pump inertia switch. Ford usually has it on either inside left or right rear trunk fenders.

No power to the fuel pump in a 1987 ford tempo


Did you check for a trip switch in the trunk behind panel at the side, probably on driver side? Little plastic box with a plunger looking thing sticking up. Push plunger down, to make sure it's set, in case it tripped. They used to trip all the time, if you just banged that fender area with your hand.
