Question about 1986 Ford Tempo
Posted by Anonymous on
Questions for you. Is the fuel pump working? When you turn the key(just not enough to turn the starter), do you hear the fuel pump? Should be like a buzzing noise for about 10 to 15 seconds. When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? They do get clogged and will halt the flow of fuel. That's all I can say with what you typed.

Getting fuel to the throttle body is controlled by the electrical system, fuel pump fuse, fuel pump relay, fuel pump cutout switch, and the fuel pump. The first thing to check is the fuses. If you turn the ignition on (everything else off so it is quiet), you should hear a small "hum" of the fuel pump running. If you don't hear this, check the fuse. If the fuses are good, check the cutout switch. You will have to check for specific location of this switch. It is a switch that if your car is in a wreck the fuel pump will shut off to avoid a fire hazard. There is a reset button on this switch. After that, if you still don't get any fuel, the easiest cure is to change the fuel filter. So after all of the above items are checked, there is probably a problem with the fuel pump (located in the gas tank).
