Question about 1992 Ford Tempo
My foot pressed tto the floor does very little to accelerate my car
Buy a can of carburator cleaner. And remove the air duct works (big hose) from the fuel system side. Look inside and see if you can spot some holes on the side.That's the IAC valve. With the engine running at 1200 rpms spray the cleaner into the holes. Let it soak for a while. Then repeat the process. if that does not work. Remove the IAC from the other side of the holes and clean the holes. replace the IAC if it is clogged and you can not clean it. If that still does not work. Try to get a trouble code to see if a sensor is bad. Namely the idle position or crankshaft position sensor. They will scan it for free at many autoparts store. or have somebody with a knowledge of finding the trouble code by the blinking of the check engine light.
