1994 Ford Tempo with 183,000 miles
I have replaced plugs, wires, rotor, coil, distributor cap and all bad vacuum hoses. I did a fuel pressure check and everything came back fine. Cat. Convert is ok. I did notice that after the car has been running for a while (30 minutes) the temperature gauge is still showing a cold reading. It will go from warm to a cold reading. The check engine light would come on. I did a code test with it coming back as no problem found. I'm hoping that there is still life in the engine. When it is acting up there is a lot of pinging noise. HELP! Could it be a bad head gasket or cylinder? It was in the shop and they had no idea what the problem was. Thanks
have the same problem?
