1991 Ford Tempo GL 2.3L from North America
A scary winter vehicle
The Tempo I bought was a 1991 with only 28,000 miles on it for an elderly woman owned it previously. Unfortunately, I have the problem of chronic stalling and it terrifies me to drive it because I almost get rear ended when it stalls. It stalls only when I have stopped and am about to go again.
Aside from the stalling I love the car. It is in pristine condition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

All you need is a new TPS "Throttle Position Sensor" $20.00. This sensor is on top of the engine and between the air-filter and engine. It is held of by 2-screws and has an electrical plug in that plugs into it from the drivers side.. It could be your oxygen sensor. If the check engine light comes on it is most likely the oxygen sensor.
