94 ford tempo problem again?
I own a 94 ford tempo, 2.3L, automatic with a/c, 135000 km (I'm sure most know by now). Thank god I am getting rid of the car soon. Anyways, I have two more problems.
First : recently my check engine light has been coming on while driving. Not all the time, but the funny thing is that it doesn't stay on. The temperature gauge is normal, oil, trans, power steering, and brake fluid are all topped up. So is the anti-freeze. When it came on the first time I pulled over, shut off the car, check the engine, couldn't find anything. Turned the car on and the light was off. Every time since, the light would come on and when the car is shut off; even just for 10 seconds, and turn on the lights out. I know it's possible a sensor. I just thought that once the light comes on, it stays on till the computer is reset.
Would I be correct ? Could I still run for codes or does the light have to stay on ? What could cause this ?
Second : when I make sharp left turns in drive I can hear the wheel rubbing against the wheel well. Doesn't happen if I make a sharp right turns. More so, if I make a sharp left turns in reverse I don't get the rubbing. I just got the ball joints replaced, as well as an alignment. I would have thought that I would have found out if something else had to be replaced when I got the front end looked at. But the guy that did it, also said I didn't need an alignment after replacing the ball joints.....so.
What could cause this, the pitman arm, idler arm ? something else ? I know my rack has a leak in it, and my suspension is shoot in the front end.
Any help would help, yet again......
