In that kind of problems you shold check your ignition switch or your gas pump sensors as well as your gas pump.

I have a 93 tempo and it won't start. I've replaced the fuel punp, ignition switch and ignition cylinder. The check engine light doesn't even come on when I turn the key to the on position. Fuel pump...

With out doing any electrical test's , just off the top of my head , I'd say the CCRM - constant control relay module is the culprit ! This module houses the fuel pump relay , PCM relay , cooling fan relay an a couple others as well .It should be checked for battery voltage at a couple of place on the connector for the CCRM . An check the grounds as well . When you turn the ignition key to run it powers up the module , that should be checked for battery voltage also . The module is mounted to the driver side shock tower , in the engine compartment !

1991 ford tempo ran fine went to store it started fine and then just died

Likely a gas or spark problem. Spray starting fluid into the air intake while cranking it. If it then runs for a few seconds, it's a fuel problem-maybe the fuel pump, filter, or injector circuit. Check if gas is getting up to the engine.
Buy an inexpensive "spark tester" at a parts store, and check for spark- if no spark, the ignition circuit will need diagnosed- could be the ignition coil, maybe the electronic ignition module-several possibi9lities. Let me know what you find, or if other questions..

94 sierra won't start. I would like to check fuel pump pressure at the injector body. Should there be enough pressure to squirt fuel when the ignition is turned on? TKS

There should be enough pressure to squirt fuel if you have a test point. The injector will not spray untill it sees a pulse from the ignition module. You might have someone turn the ignition switch on while you listen at the tank, the pump should run for two seconds. If not I would start with the relay, maybe swap it with the a/c relay, should be same part #. if the pump does not run, sometimes a sharp rap to the bottom of the tank will dislodge a stuck pump(only temp. Not a solution)but will let you know if the pump is the problem. If the pump runs and you have pressure but still have no spray at the injector then you need to look at ignition module, crank sensor. Depending on if you have fire at the plugs. If you have no fire, the crank sensor is suspect. If there is fire check the ignition module. If you take the ignition module to an auto parts store(i.e. Advance, O'reilly ) they have a tester to tell you if it's bad. Hope this helps you find your problem.

Car starts & idles ok, but when driven it stalls & sometimes turns off? changed fuel pump,maybe injectors need cleaning? please help! TYVM!!

The usual problems with this car are; the inertia (rollover) switch this is located behind the trunk liner on the left side of the trunk reset the button or, replace the switch; also this car is notorious for the "thin film ignition" module on the side of the distributor it overheats and the flexible circuitboard inside cracks and, causes the car to stall intermittantly
