How to Troubleshoot a Ford Tempo

    • 1). Turn the ignition switch to start your vehicle. If you cannot start your vehicle, and the battery is fully charged, you have a dead switch. This is, in all likelihood, caused by the faulty switch Ford installed on the Tempo in most model years up to 1991. This issue can be replaced free of charge under a factory recall.

    • 2). Check your Ford Tempo cooling fan in the front of the vehicle. During the winter (if it snows where you live), ice and snow can cause the fan to seize or block the fan blades. This can cause the fan to overheat and smoke, potentially causing an electrical fire in the engine bay. This issue can be fixed at a Ford dealership under a factory recall. The dealer will install a jumper harness to prevent overheating of the fan.

    • 3). Check your Ford Tempo for replacement fuel pumps sold under the brand name Carter, Accuflow, NAPA, Truflow, Parts Depo and Parts Master. These fuel pumps made between August 2006 and July of 2007 had significant fitment issues on the Tempo and may leak. This issue can be corrected under a factory recall with the specific manufacturer of the pump.
