1993 Ford Tempo 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles
Yesterday afternoon I took a ride of about 100km. When arrived to destination, I stop the car. About 45 minutes after, I go and start the car, the car would crank but will not start.
When I turn the key, I hear no fuel pump at all. I disconnect the fuel line right before the fuel filter and there was pressure at start but after, there was no pressure at all. Even when I turn the key on and start position. That tell me that the fuel pump doesn't work at all.
I putted some gas in the air intake and the car did start for couple of sec until the gas went dry. Telling me that only gas is missing.
I decided to sleep over and let the car out and call a mechanic tomorrow morning (this morning) but I say hey.I'll give it a try. And it works!
I make my trip back home (100km) no problem. Now I am back at home and when I arrived, I stop the car and try it again. Didn't hear the fuel pump again.
Something tell me that it's electronic related. A relay perhaps? I've make a search and the car doesn't have a fuel pump relay but it's included in a module (CCRM) Constant Control Relay Module.
Is it possible that when the engine is hot, that module when getting hot make that issu and when the engine is getting cold, the cold soldered joint makes contact again and everything works?
Does that makes senses?
