SOURCE: HARMONIC BALANCER
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

First remove radiator fan shrould.This will give you access to the fan.Remove fan and fan belts.Remove bolt on harmonic balancer.You will need to rent a balancer remover and installer kit.Most big auto parts chains will rent these kits to you.Next remove four bolts holding pulley to balancer.Next attach balancer puller to balancer with long bolts from kit.Using a 1\2 drive breaker bar,remove balancer from engine.After removing balancer replace front seal.Lubricate hub on new balancer with engine oil.Then use installation tool from kit to install balancer.Never try to beat balancer on with hammer,engine damage could occur.Then work in reverse to replace remaining parts.Hope this will help you.

A battery drain will not be caused by a bad fuse, its called by something draining power that you can not see. We call this a parasitic dran because just like a parasite drains your energy so does this. Its easy to test for if you have a test light. Loosen the negative battery cable and attach the aligator clip to the clamp next hold the post of the test light to the post of the battery and remove the battery cable being careful not to let it touch the test light. If you have any light thats your drain. On some fords you need to give the computers 30 minutes to power down after shutting the car off. if you want to isolate the system thats causing the drain pull and replace fuses one by one, when the light goes out you have your suspect.
