    I have a 1993 Tempo losing power. Usually when fuel is lower but this has happened it least once jusf after filling up. Stopping and turning off engine for a few minutes usually fixes it, sometimes for several weeks. Engine temperature always reads normal or lower

SOURCE: fuel cut off switch for 1990/91 ford escort 1.9

The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.

SOURCE: Fuel leaks from rear tank to front.

The leaking from one tank to another was covered by a recall from Ford. Not sure if they still foot the bill for installation of the required check valves. These are still available from the dealership. The rear one is the hardest to install. The check valve can be installed without pulling the rear tank. As for your front sender I would clean all of the connections to the sender and make sure it has a decent ground. If it still only reads at the 1/4 tank level you will have to replace the sender to rectify the problem.

SOURCE: Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.

Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

1991 Ford tempo gl overheats when in idle and how do I replace power window motor?


Overheating at idle is usually due to the engine cooling fan not working. Could be a bad fan relay (most common cause), bad fan thermostat, or a bad fan motor.
Replacing the power window motor is quite difficult, I would leave this to the pros unless you are really mechanically inclined. I replaced one on an Aerostar, but I don't think I'd try it again.

Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.


It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.
