I bought a low-mileage 93 Ford Tempo GL which (surprise surprise) didn't pass safety. The rear brakes aren't functioning properly and the mechanic told me I need new brakes, new bearings, and possibly new...

Indeed the brake fluid for the rear comes from the main reservoir. However, many cars (the tempo included I'm sure) actuate the rear brake by a mechanical linkage to the E-brake lever. So, simply put when you pull the lever the cylinder will never extend. You have to push the brake pedal for that.

When it comes to your safety test, I think you could get by just by taking up the slack in the E-brake cable. This should be accessible by taking apart the center console right behind the E-brake lever.

I cant get my 93 ford tempo master cylinder to bleed out of the front or secondary lines This is leaving me with no brakes on the passenger rear and driver front When it's not attached to the car it bleeds...

take the bleed valve out completely, pump the brake. if it works change the bleed valve it must be blocked. also is the bleed valve at the top as have heard some people put the pistons on the wrong sides and the bleed valve is at the bottom this will not bleed up this way as air will still be in there.

How much does it cost to install a wheel cylinder on a 94 Ford Tempo?

Well the cost is location relevant, but there is more to be aware of.
First, brakes need to be done in axle sets, both front or both rear...
Usually there is other damage with wheel cylinder issues, like leaking. Brakes are done when soaked with brake fluid..and need to be replaced.
Also, springs need attention, as overheating happens on OTHER brakes with wheel cylinder issues...
Brake drums need to be resurfaced....
So all of these things take between 2 to 4 hours plus all of the needed parts. The wheel cylinders are not very costly, themselves, but the job and labor sometimes is..

The brake cylinder in the rear drum of a 93 ford ranger broke, how do i replace it

Remove wheel, brake drum, and brake shoes. The cylinder is the part the brake line goes into and it spreads the brake shoes apart when you brake.

Loosen the brake line but do not take off, unbolt the cylinder and then disconnect brake line. loosely connect the brake line to the new cylinder so you do not loose much brake fluid, bolt new cylinder in and then tighten the brake line.
Reinstall shoes. There should be a bleeding screw/grease head in the brake cylinder, loosen this and have someone step on the brake to bleed the line, have them hold the brake while you tighten the bleed screw. Do this as many times as necessary until brake fluid only with no air comes out.
Reinstall drum and tire, top off brake fluid.

93 Tempo power steering leak under car

Own one of these and had to replace both the hi pressure and return lines for the hydrulic rack and pinoin steering unit. The hoses are cramed directly under the motor towards the rear. It was a challenge!
