Fuel filter's should be replaced about every 30,000 miles, if you haven't done this, it should be done any way's.

How do you know the injectors aren't getting fuel? I know Shcuks/ Kragen/ Checkers has rental tools, other auto parts store may also. You should get or rent 1) NOID light set - this will tell you if your electrical system is telling your injectors to open. 2) fuel presure gauge, this will hook onto the fuel rail and tell you if your getting proper fuel presure to the rail. If fuel is getting to the rail at proper presure then look at your injectors.

SOURCE: my 89 tempo is not

Check if there is fuel before or after the fuel filter. If there is no fuel or weak delivery after the fuel filter then you will have it replace the filter. If it is weak before it, you may have to check the fuel pump. The wiring or the pump may be weakening. If there is no fuel before the filter but the pump is working as stated, check the fuse and the relay. One of them may be bad. If all check out OK, have your injectors inspected.

Cant find fuel pump relay on a 93 tempo gl 2.3 eng.


Location of the fuel pump relay for fuel injector models, is either behind the glove box or near the EEC module around the steering column.

Note: This vehicle came up with mechanical and electric fuel pumps. Mechanical fuel pumps do not use a relay.

My 89 tempo is not getting fuel to the injectors the fuel pump is working fine what could be the problem

If you have pressure from your fuel pump, you could have a blockage between the pump and the injectors. Most likely spot would be the fuel filter. If your system is not clogged somewhere, (there is pressure to the injectors), then you have a sensor issue that is not telling your injectors when to spray. You can run code diagnostics to determine where the fault is. Since your car will not run, the code reader will have to come to you. National parts chains have the readers, and if you could take the car to them will normally read the fault codes and interpret them for you, many will let you take the reader for a small deposit, refundable upon return, show you how to use it etc. Good Luck! I hope this is very helpful!

1992 Ford Tempo- Vibrations and stalls freq.

change to a good Motorcraft (Ford) oil filter with good check valve in it.

Try adding some Chevron Techron Fuel injector cleaner with less than 1/4 tank of fuel. It will clean varnish from injectors.
