ignition control module. This is one of most common problems with Ford Tempo when there are over 100k miles Ignition coil or fuel pump are the 2 big ones that come to mind on that one. HEY IT COULD ALSO BE THE CAM SENSOR TELLING THE COMPUTER TO SHUT DOWN, THEN IT WILL RE-START IN 10-15 MINUTES, IF IT DOES IT MORE WHEN ITS HOT OUTSIDE, ITS BECAUSE THE SENSOR HAS A MAGNETIC PICKUP, WHICH CRACKS OVER TIME AND FROM OVERHEATING. WHEN I REPLACED MY SENSORS, VOILA! B00GER
