1992 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan


I bought this car 4 months ago. Since
then, I had to put a starter in,
brakes (2 times), head gasket, the
transmission is slipping BAD (have NOT
replaced it), 4 new tires, an
alignment/balance, cadalitic converter
(ignore my spelling please), power
steering AND the power steering AND
oil leaks, STILL, plus I just found
out that the motor is only running on
1 cylinder (instead of 4). I won't be
replaceing the motor. The car stalls
out if I am not hitting the gas ALL
THE TIME, it smokes from the moment I
start the car till I turn it off (but
is not overheating), AND everything
possible is leaking. What a waste of
