Couple of days ago I made a couple of post about a terrible noise in my
son's 1992 Ford Tempo. We thought it was a problem with the air conditioner
because the noise almost went away when the compressor was working. We have
since narrowed the problem down to the Harmonic Balancer/ Crankshast pulley.
Apparently there was a Ford general recall for this problem back in
April/1994 the TSB number is 94M83. The work was never done on this car and
I'm wondering if we where missed or where there certain vehicles on the
production line not effected by the general recall? I really don't trust my
Ford dealer to give me a straight answer about why it wasn't done under the
I may not be able to get Ford to do the reapir after so many years but I
sure plan on trying. Planning for the worst case senario I would like to
here from anyone who has replaced the pulley on one of these cars, any tips
would be appreciated.
