What part of the country are you located in? is it hot in that area alot? see if you can follow your fuel lines if they are not inside of a frame rail from the fuel tank forward. you could wrap your fuel line once it comes out of the rail going to the fuel distribution area of the motor. it might be to close to a heat source which boils the fuel before it get to atomized.

I have a '94 Tempo, it had a "ticking" sound. It was the "harmonic balancer" (crankshaft pulley) a local mechanic changed it for $60, the part cost me $120 (I work for a Ford dealership) $180 without employee discount. you can get one for much less at a junkyard if you can find one. Good luck, Sean

SOURCE: 2003 Audi TT Quatro Coupe.

The main reason for the over heating of the audi tt is to do with the water pump. The propeller within the first type of water pumps is made of plastic. This was to prevent corrosion, however was never designed to last longer than 5 years. What you need to do is purchase the new style water pump. These new style water pumps have been designed with a metallic propellor which should resolve the overheating. Let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: HI. MY CADILLAC SEVILLE V8 4.9L '93, STILL

Ensure motor tune or other motor mechanical condition is not the cause of overheating, I assume the motor is actually running hot, - ensure the high gauge reading is not just a gauge sender problem. Check cooling fans are operating ok (as necessary when car warms up):- if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary when re-filling,
Ensure radiator hose on suction side of waterpump is not collapsing at engine revs above idle (due softening),
If the motor has been severely overheated, the head gasket could be blown - look for combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.

If none of the above fix your problem, replace the thermostat again - it is not unheard of for a new thermostat to be faulty .

Radiator fan does not work


That's bad and it could be that your Electronic Radiator Thermostat is causing all the problem as it tells the fan to come on or stay off.

Possible Vapor Lock Fix


There has been no fuel vapor lock in almost
30 years,does not happen with fuel injection

Vapor locks


It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated.
You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.

You'll have to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure next time it quits.
Could be ignition module, a relay, fuel vapor lock, or a list of other things.

Location of radiator fan relay 1992 ford tempo gl


The radiator cooling fan relay in ford Tempo gl has been integrated into the CCRM (Constant Control Relay Module) this is the black box fixed to the left strut tower with the big cable harness on it.

This relay box is commanded by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) it´s linked to every sensor in the car. (It's located behind the fuse panel next to the steering column.

The PCM supervises various conditions, including the signal that the ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature) sensor sends and power up the Fan Relay into CCRM to activate the Cooling Fan.
