Could be broken timing belt. Do the spark plugs have spark?
.054 in is the standard gap for most if not all Tempo engines.
According to one of Fords websites : For the 2.3 liter four cylinder engine in a 1989 Ford Tempo : ( the spark plugs are gapped at .054 inch )
Some auto parts retail websites have spark plug wiring diagrams. One of them, AutoZone, shows the spark plug wiring diagram for the 1993 Ford Tempo 3.0 liter 6-cylinder model.
The spark plug torque spec range is between 6 and 10 ft/lbs.
Fuel pump? Engine coil? Check fuel and spark
im not getting fire to the spark plugs but the distributor is getting fire what do i do please help
It needs fuel, compression and spark, you are missing one of those.
Look at the starter or the spark plug
what kind of car?
not to sure to be honest if it has a spark plug the spark when fitten to the engine could be shorting to earth before the spark reaches the cylinder( ignition of the fuel) could be worth a try changing them
How do you know it is getting spark if it won't turn over?
1988 kx 250 not getting good spark now what can i do
Need spark plugs
If getting fuel and spark, then need compression and air.
sometimes fire gets so hot that it bursts and brings out a tiny spark.
Try the battery. Sometimes it seems fine but it is really not.
If your Honda CRV cranks but won't turn over because the spark plugs are not getting spark, ensure the wires are connected. A loose spark plug wire can cause this issue.
what car model if tempo mounted on side distrubtor 1992 tempo. blown fuses no voltage from key switch etc.etc.etc chilton manual 8271 for more trouble shooting flow charts.
my kx 250 is not getting spark
Simple your not getting spark from the spark plugs. i recomend getting someone that knows how to check for spark because there is a lot of items you have to check.
If you're not getting spark from the distributor, see if you're getting spark from the ignition coil. If there's no spark there, then the coil is either bad, or it's not wired up correctly.
