Either have a mechanic do it or purchase a maintenance manual for your car at a parts store.

1991 ford tempo - ac will only blow throught the defroster. Any solutions?

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

Defrost is a default when there is no vacuum to change the accuators in the dash to redirect airflow. Check the vacuum source line going into the dash on the passenger side for any cracks or leaks.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

On my way to work my tempo overheated and shut down. could this be the thermostat or water pump

check for water flow in the radiator. if the hoses dont expand when you rev the engine, the water pump is probably bad. alot of the factory water pumps have a plastic impeller on them, and the impeller will break in pieces inside the pump housing. if you take the hose off the pump you can see the impeller. napa sells a new one with a aluminum impeller and its a new one, not rebuilt.

Car began overheating, so we added antifreeze and water. Then the next day, it all leaked out. Upper hoses appear to be ok. Are there lower hoses?

It should have a lower hose also. Or you could check around the water pump, they have a weep hole on it and they usually leak if the pump is bad.

Can't figure out how to access the water pump to replace it in my 1991 ford tempo

Probably easier from underneath, such as on a hoist. Sorry, but true.

Timing chain

Timing chain does not need to be replaced like a timing belt. It will only need to be replaced if it starts making noise or causing problems
