1990 Ford Tempo ignition problems

Engine turns over but doesn't seem to be firing...checked the battery, exchanged it, no luck starting it...it just started not wanting to start cold...
then, plugs got replaced, new wires, etc. and still didn't want to start...
started last week (started and ran for a couple days) then didn't start this week...i know about the thick film ignition module problem with this model, but not sure what's up...my mechanic kinda got frustrated and quit...I NEED A MIRACLE!!!

No, you need a "mechanic" who has a clue.

Mechanic selection tip of the day. When looking for and choosing a mechanic, do not look underneath shadetrees.

I used to drive my mom's '89 Tempo for about a year. When she decides to get rid of it, as it is worth less than beans, i will personally see to it that it gets punished to the full extent of my sledge hammer swinging abilities.
