Just got a Diesel Tempo coupe. Excited!! Been sitting a long while I already see a bad CV axle, and the ignition switch is wonky. Super confused on the oil change. Keep reading there are two oil filters. Any advice! Ford guy just wanted something weird.

What year?

Somewhere in this chaos of my shop I have some troubleshooting information on the diesels of that era, but it is for the Mitsubishi diesel as used in the Escort. (If memory serves me correctly)

Not sure if the Tempo used the same engine but chances are good.

The ignition switch beginning to fail will make these cars do all sorts of weird stuff. Things you wouldn’t normally associate with a bad ignition switch.
