1990 ford tempo will not start after replacing exhaust manifold.

Asked by Aug 10, 2015 at 07:57 PM about the 1990 Ford Tempo 4 Dr LX Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It turns over but will not fire. I have checked  spark to #2 plug, good spark.  I bled air from
fuel rail, good pressure. Can the ECM or CCRM be tested.  When the manifolds were off
the battery was hooked up to roll the windows up, key turned forward not to Accessory,
could that damage an electrical component.  If so which one?

It could be a blown fuse link, so get out your test light and start probing them to see if you find some blown ones.

That was my next route of testing. Thank you
