Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Ford Tempo 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 48000 miles
By process of elimination, I believe the problem to be the fuel pump relay switch (changed plugs, wires, rotor, fuel filter, battery connections). One minute the care will start and run fine, then next it just dies as if it ran out of fuel. Sometimes it will start right up, other times it sits for extended periods of time. From other blogs sounds like a common problem with the relay switch, but. Where is the fuel pump relay switch located? I believe it may be somewhere near the strut in the engine compartment drivers side. But it is part of the "body control module'? I am not a mechanic and am trying to figure this out myself. Dropping the tank to replace the fuel pump will be my last option. Is this an easy replacement. What is estimated part cost? Thanks very much!
have the same problem?
