      Defective coolant temperature sensor. The air/gas ratio and choke setting are controlled based on the coolent temperature. When this sensor goes bad you have to wait until the engine cools off before it will start. A new sensor costs about 20 dollars and takes a few minutes to install.

      Take to a different repair shop - first of all the $99.00 diagnostic charge should be applied to the repairs. Secondly, yes they should have reported all the OBD failure codes to you.

      The check engine light is located on the dash and stays on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem.

      P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) - this fault code has nothing to do with the catalytic converter itself.

      Note: replace the upstream sensor (located before catalytic converter) and the downstream sensor (located after catalytic converter).
      Replace the both sensors at the same time. Check with for Denso O2 sensors

    11 codes were shown when put on the reader. 8 of them misfires in all cylinders plus 2 random. One of them was the IA Valve. ( I forget the other 2). Car is running rough. The mechanic went through all the codes. nothing was wrong. He reset them and re-read it, the ...

      I think you need to find another mechanic. If he can't find the root of the cause for 11 engine codes, then there's a problem. Usually multiple codes for the same problem throughout the engine is due to whatever may contribute to that system. For instance, if you have misfires in every cylinder, but the problem is caused by low fuel pressure, you shouldn't first check/replace the fuel injectors. I would first check the fuel pressure regulator, then the fuel filter, then the fuel pump, then the fuel lines. Same with the ignition system

      No such Ford vehicle as the 2000 model year Tempo. At any rate, first step is to check the fuses, wiring harness and connections at the motor itself.

      If the car engine cranks normally but won't start, at least you know that the battery and the starting system are working. If the battery was low on charge, the engine would crank very slow or wouldn't crank at all; if the starter was bad, the engine wouldn't crank. So let's look at what else is needed for an engine to start and what are the common problems:
      -Compression in the engine cylinders
      -Proper timing
      If still there is problem i suggest you to visit an auto electrician
