Question about 1987 Ford Tempo
Our 87 tempo revs up to about 4 on the rpms then dies when you start it. it also loses power when you accelerate, after it dies it acts like it's "flooded" and won't restart for a while.then when it does start it blows black smoke
It is flooded then. Maybe your engine computer is giving it too much fuel. Have someone perform an EEC test to get the fault codes.
