Question about 1992 Ford Tempo

1 Answer

Where is the schrader valve on a 92 tempo 2.3L?

I just got a tempo that only has 75K [yes 75K, purchased from an older couple who bought the car brand new in 92] miles on it. Here of late the car has decided to only turn over but not crank. It is getting spark, has a brand new distributor on it [older couple had it installed not me.]. I am thinking it is fuel related, but cannot seem to find the valve to hook my pressure tester on to. I have never worked on a 2.3L engine, only a ford escot 1.9L engine. It is manifold injected, has mass air flow on it, and of course has a distributor. Anyone who could help me out, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

A Schrader Valve is like the ones you have on your wheels. The stems. They are also located on the airconditioning unit , and the fuel pressure line in your engine.

Night not be compressor itself. Have a pro check the system for leaks.

My 92 tempo gl smokes like crazy when i first start it and some times runs rouhg for the first mile then clears up and then drives fine???

The valve stem seals are probably shot, if it is blue smoke-oil burning. What happens is when you shut the car off, oil slips down past the bad seals and pools around the valve seat. Soon as car is started, that pooled oil goes into the cylinder. When you shut the engine off, oil under the valve cover will do the same thing again-it will pool around the valves because of the bad stem seals. A repair manual can tell you how to replace the seals without pulling the head off. An air compressor is necessary to keep pressure in the cylinder, so the valve won't fall down into the cylinder.

Why does my 92 Tempo stall when idling after the engine is warm? 2.3L, 4cyl. We just purchased this used car and it ran perfectly for the first 30-50 miles. Now it stalls at the lights and occasionally the...

You might want to try removing air by-pass valve & cleaning it, or replacing it. If you try cleaning, get another gasket before so you can replace gasket. Once you remove it, spray inside it with throttle body spray cleaner, and also in side port where it came out of. Then re-install with new gasket, and try it. Even if it only cures it for a short time, you've found problem & then can replace with new. Some of these will clean up & work o.k. for quite a while, others are not helped at all, or for only a short time. Here's a picture of what it probably looks like on your car. It will be near front, usually on side of throttle body.c8d7e49.jpg

Front Wheel Bearings for 91 Tempo

You'd have to take the car to a shop, the front bearing have to be pressed in unlike the rear bearings.

I've had the driver side bearing go out, and now the passenger side is GOING out. But yeah, unless you have the machinery at home to do it, you'll need to go to a mechanic.

No fun I know. I've got a 92 Tempo
