Having problems with your 1992 Ford Tempo ?

My 1992 Ford Tempo won't start. It acts like it wants to start by turning over but there is no catch to fire it up. So far the alternator, harmonic balancer, fuel pump, plugs,distributor and filters have all been changed out. Any other suggestions?

Answers :

...the harmonic balancer was replaced? I hope that was not in relation to your vehicle not starting - if it was, that was a waste of money. The first three things to check for are fuel, air, and spark.
You need to test if the spark is making it to the end of the spark plug - can be done by removing a plug and placing it in the wire - and setting it near something that it can arc to. Just don't zap yourself.
Next, check for fuel pressure.
Check for a clogged air intake system or dirty air filter.

After than you'd check for compression - by putting a compression gauge in to a spark plug port. If the compression is low or off by 25% in one cyl from the different ones, this is an issue.
