1992 Tempo GL/ 3.0L Vulcan & 5-speed mtx
By AJB on


1992 Ford Tempo GL 2dr Coupe


i bought the car on Craigslist back in November 08, for $210. It has developed a leak in the gas tank [about a gallon a night] depending on how full it is, I have yet to repair it with some cheap quick job like a metal bracket and a load of JB Weld. The closing door electric track seat belts or what ever they're called, both sound like the gears have rounded out, and don't come down and secure you, they just make a loud grinding noise for like 10 seconds after starting the car, the windows are crank/manual & the drivers side window feels like it has cheap plastic gears, and like the seat belt rounded out gears, the paint is faded baby blue, m.a.s is too small

Favorite Features

The Vulcan is reliable, and decent in the performance area. I had a 1990 Taurus SHO, and it reminds me of a mini SHO, but it's still not near a SHO on the highway pickup or topping it out. the speedo only goes to 80mph, but by using the RPM's i can roughly predict how fast I'm going over 80mph

Suggested Improvements

It's too late for any because they're the Focus now, but better doors/locks. A little more engine space under the hood, a little more rust proof on the panels, a larger M.A.S air flow unit. basically a tougher version over all would be good.
