It could be a fuel supply problem, plugged fuel filter or faulty fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key to the on position, you should hear the the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds. This will tell you that the fuel pump is getting power, but it could still be weak. There are other things that could be causing the problem, does the engine have spark after it stalls?Do the injectors function?What is missing from the equation? Engines require compression, fuel, spark and air to run. If it is a fuel supply issue, after it stalls, you should be able to spray carb cleaner (acts as fuel) into the throttle body to restart the engine and keep it running at an idle by feeding the right amount of carb spray.

Runs good for couple hours the quits.starts immediately then quits.let it sit a day runs great then quits.it always starts immediately


Year/make/model/engine size??? Important info for any assistance. Sounds as if an electrical component is heating up and causing this issue. Possible ignition coil/ignition module/crank sensor. It could be a lot of other things causing this problem, however, these are the most common sources to cause this issue

87 thunderbird some times starts but quits when put into geer


check your contact points are set correctly, or may even be burned , if so replace them , its a comon thing if the contact points are badly set ,when you put the car in gear it will stall or wont idle , i had a 67 t/bird landau that did exactly the same , , turning off the highway was a night mare ,i had to keep the accelerator pressed while i braked , otherwise it would stop and then i would have no steering ,very annoying and very dangerous

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.

1989 for tempo starts fine but after idling for a few minutes will quit. Will stall when you pull up to a stop sign. Have to keep the engine revved up to keep it running. The check engine light comes on...


hi,

its time for new fuel filter, new fuel injectors, spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor. the engine in the tempo is a good one and if you take care of it that car should last quite a while longer..

91 tempo heats up and quits wont start until engine has cooled


I had the same problem with f-150. the timing chain would stretch when it heated up and cause it to quit and naturally it wouldnt start until the chain cooled down and tightened back up.
