Disconnect the negative post on the battery.
Support the tank with a jack with a plywood piece.
Disconnect the metal straps holding the tank.
Slowly lower the tank.
Disconnect the fuel lines from the top of the tank and plug them with a screw or something similar in size.
Remove the retainer ring holding the fuel pump/sending unit with a brass punch and hammer.
Pull the fuel pump/sending unit out and replace it.

1993 tempo is not getting gas?


Sound like your fuel pump might need to be replace, while some one crank engine, hit gas tank with hammer (hard), some time's will start, if not possible bad fuel pump.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1992 ford tempo?


The fuel pump relay is part of a large relay control unit called the IRCM (intagrated relay control module)

The module is about 6"x4"x2" and has gobs of wires (large retangular connector) coming out of it, the module is mounted on a bracket under the hood that is bolted to the top of the driver's side front strut tower, this module can be self tested by a dealer to see if it is bad, they seldom fail, I am a Ford dealer tech and have only replaced 2 in 20 years, Tempo does however have a fuel pump issue..
