Question about 1988 Ford Festiva
When I bought the car I knew the shifter needed new bushings and the clutch was a little loose. The person who had the car previously loosened the clutch cable. While driving the car I was stopped at a stop light and when I went to put in gear to take off the car would not move. I finally was able to tighten the clutch cable back to where it needs to be but now when I put the car in gear it acts like it is in neutral. Could this be a bushing problem? My husband says it has something to do with the shift linkage but I do not want to replace the clutch right now due to finance issues.
Well i got a camry same engine I am getting my car checked this Friday because it feels loose on 2nd and 4th gears. I might end up with the same problem if I fail to get it repaired through payday advance. I'll let you know I checked my linkage and everything seems to be ok .. There is no looseness. But shifting into second gear you cant feel it ... I'll post it up when I manage to find out..Thanks for your patience.

Yes, you will need a press. I've replaced rear control arms in these before (Didnt bother with just the bushings) and they are a pain in the ***. In most cases the bushings seaze onto the bolts, and its a constant fight to get everything to break apart. I believe i had to cut a couple bolts off too.
