FORD TEMPO ENGINE PROBLEM

1992 Ford Tempo • 52,000 miles

PLEASE RESPOND WITH ANSWER TO : nojh3@hotmail. Com
My Ford Tempo engine will turn over but it won't start.
I thought it is doing this to me because I let the car sit for 3 days without
driving it.
Here is what I tried 1. Cranking it for 5 to 10 seconds 3 or 4 times. No result
2. Then I did what my Ford book recommended and held
the accelerator to the floor while I cranked it. No result
3. Finally I let only the key turn to where the electric fuel pump
would turn on ( ten times ) to allow fuel to be pumped to
the engine in case there was no fuel in the line. No result.
What do you suggest? Send email to : nojh3@hotmail. Com

We are required to keep all posts here. I can't send to your email. As far as the problem, have you checked the fuel pump pressure? Have you checked to see if you have spark? Will the engine start with starting fluid?
