Hello, if the choke is sticking on, and you have a carburetor equipped model, then your "choke pull-off" (CPO) is not working probably. That would be the first thing to check. When the engine starts vacuum is applies to the CPO and it opens the flutter valve on top of the carb. But when the CPO is bad or if there is insufficient vacuum to the CPO, then the result will be what you are experiencing. So to recap, first make sure the vacuum is good and then verify that the CPO is not working by looking to see if the rod pulls back on the flutter valve.
If the CPO is fine, then your temperature spring coil may not be getting voltage allowing it to heat up. This coil has a red wire connected to it that goes down to your alternator. Check to see if the black cap on the end of the temperature spring is heating up or check for 12V of voltage on that red wire.

I do have the manual and there are several on eBay all the time for Festivas, because I check there often for Festiva parts. They are often sold for about $20-$25 for the complete manual. You might want to try that. I have the manuals for Festiva, but I don't have a scanner, but I do have a digital camera that I could use to photograph it. I don't know if I can get your email address so that I can send the photos of the pages to you. Let me know.

They are not only for improving milleage, but play a crusual key for ECM to give out how much fuel to mix with air to have proper combustion hence not stalling when accelerated. But Oxygen sensors are expensive and even you have them replaced , this is not going to solve your problem since gum has built up at your throttle valve over the years. Have another shop to clean your throttle body first. Make an appointment so you can be there to see how dirty the throttle body is and also to make sure they actually take out the part to clean, not just spraying cleaner to the Air mass flow flap valve. After the throttle body cleaned, take off the battery cables for 30 minutes to reset the ECM to its default state so it doesn't use data from your current state. You will see an improvement. Afterward, the problem is still existing then Have Auto Zone store diagnose free for O2 problem before replacing them. Cheers.

Changing the timing belt is something that usually needs done if it has not been changed and the car has over $100,000 miles. Most Festivas last for a lot longer than that. Mine is going on well over 200,000! All you need is the Festiva shop manual which you can find on eBay for about $10 to $30, if you hunt around and wait for a bargain. The manual fully explains every step and makes it easy if you are mechanically inclined. If you are new to auto repair, make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing check it for you, so that the repair will be safe and last. If you have a large library near you, its possible to find a Chiltons or other brand of repair manual that covers your Festiva timing belt repair procedure.
