Customer Question
I have a 1994...

I have a 1994 Ford Tempo GL 2.3 L. I need to know for the red fuel switch button do you turn it on by pressing the button down?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Ford Tempo. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Yes, if you put to much engine oil in the tank will it cause the car not to start?

Are you referring to the inertia switch (fuel shut off) ?

The Fuel Shut off on the left side of the trunk..
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

If the switch is tripped all you need to do to reset it is push the red button down, if in fact its tripped it will click.

What about the question I ask about the engine oil?
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Over full oil will not cause the engine to not fire up and run. How much over full is it?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Around one quart over
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Being one quart over will not effect the engine starting. In order for the engine to start and run you need proper fuel pressure, good spark to the spark plugs and injector pulse. Have you checked each one of these to see which one your lacking?

I just recently change the spark plugs and valve cover gasket this week and added b-12 fuel treatment, engine treatment and oil treatment because it was pinging and or knocking now it want start.
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Okay in order to determine why it will not start you need to start with checking to see if you have good spark at the spark plugs, injector pulse at the injector and proper fuel pressure.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
