SOURCE: knocking nois only starts after engin is warmed

the tensioner or another pulley is gone bad. you need to have this fixed. I would stop driving this vehicle. you can cause serious damage to the engine if the belt jumps or breaks. When you have this fixed I recommend that you replace all the components. you only want to do this once.

High reving engine

Probably a sticking throttle cable - when this occurs, look under the hood to see if the throttle lever on the throttle body is fully in the rest position.

Over reving

Can be a number of things (check all of these):

  1. Stuck throttle linkage or accelerator pedal;
  2. Loose butterfly on throttle body;
  3. Stuck or malfunctioning idle air controller;
  4. Loose or damaged throttle body or bad throttle body gasket;
  5. Cracked intake manifold or bad intake manifold gasket;
  6. Bad ignition control module.

1994 ford tempo; vehicle upshifts late, won't shift until 35-40 mph after high reving fro 35 mph, then again at 65 mph after high reving from 55 mph to 65 mph.

Sounds like your transmission is on the fritz. Try changing the fluid and filter see if that helps. If that doesnt try a can of anti slip from any good parts place (Napa). If this dosent help it's time for a rebuild on the transmission

Revs erratically

sounds like the rev limiter is kicking in to keep the engine from over rev damage, there should be a way to get the limiter disabled or perhaps get the turbo building boost sooner.

The car is slow to go after a stop and is reving

check the plastic grommet where the kick down cable hooks to side of throttle body...they tend to rot off which causes cable to get out of adjustment. causing miss shifts..good luck... lee
