Question about 1986 Ford Tempo
1987 ford tempo 2.3 Litre fuel injected automatic transmission
will idle only at approx. 1000 RPM
Have seen it idle at 800 RPM on a highly intermittent basis (almost never).
This sometimes occurs with age due to egr and intake becoming carbon filled , inturn requireing more vacuum inturn raising rpm to keep up , check all vac lines for poss leaks this will cause prob , to check for leaks crank engine let idle use can of wd40 or starting fluid and spray lightly around suspected area , if rpms raise when u spray then u have found ur leak
