Re: need help with ford tempo

Several years ago, I recall a similar concerns with some of the pick ups.
The cure was to service the transmission (believe it or not). Transmission
line pressures are very high in reverse and the power required was more than
the engine could deliver at idle. More recently, some of the diesel/4R100
trucks were also having a nearly similar concern in extreme cold temps....
the cure in this case was to switch to synthetic ATF.

HTH.

Re: need help with ford tempo

Chances are you don't have the same problem as me, but just in case...

My 89 ford tempo was stalling whenever i'd put it into reverse. I
parallel park and have to Drive/Reverse frequently to get out of my
parking space. I found that whenever I moved it to reverse it had a
great chance of stalling, but it'd never stall when moving between any
other gears.

A couple weeks later my ignition failed, and if I turned my key it'd
start.. and as soon as I let go it would kill the engine. I got my
ignition replaced, and I did not experience any more stalling on
reverse. I don't know how the 2 were related, but that's just my
experience.

Re: need help with ford tempo

When you say you got your "ignition" replaced, what exactly do you
mean?
