Ford built the Tempo from 1984 to 1994. This means there are a lot of Tempos out there, many of which could probably use a new engine. Well, you've come to the right place. This is your Ford Tempo Engine headquarters where you can find new, used and rebuilt engines.
If you find a used engine - providing it's from a fairly new Tempo with relatively few miles on it - and you can buy it from a reliable salvage or junk yard, the motor will probably give you many years of service.
You might also want to think about buying a "crate" engine. A crate engine is guaranteed to run right out of the crate. It will operate properly because it has been rebuilt and tested according to strict standards.
The first thing the rebuilder does when working on a Ford Tempo engine is to remove all the plugs. Next, the tech cleans all the components and inspects the oil galleys to make sure that oil will flow to all areas when the motor is restarted.
A refurbished Tempo engine has been considerably reworked and contains many new components. The work includes reboring the cylinders up to the next size, replacing the piston rings and the pistons, regrinding the camshaft, installing new seals and bearings, and installing a new oil pump and timing belt.
The mechanic also works on the cylinder heads. S/he installs resurfaces the valves and installs new valve guides. The heads also get new rocker arms, pushrods, and valve lifters. After all of this is complete, the tech vacuum and pressure tests the head. Lastly, s/he cleans the engine again, checks for oil leaks, and listens for odd noises.
