Question about 1988 Ford Festiva
We have a festiva that needed smogged. The smog place said the pipe from the small manifold by the carb was missing and needed to be installed. The catalytic converter has no provision for a connection, although the muffler shop ordered a replacement that did have a connection for the pipe. I am trying to find out if this was a midyear change as our converter was the original and there was no way to connect it to the manifold by the carb.The service manual diagrams for the 1988 do show a connection from this manifold (control valve?) to the converter.Any help on this would be appreciated. Thank you

Whatever it had when it was sold in OR is what will be required in calif, it goes by engine calibration number, that is on a sticker on the valve cover, another way to get it is to run the VIN number on a Ford information computer, we call this the OASIS SYSTEM. Also check the emission sticker on the radiaor support under the hood.

ok well this might be a hard one . from what i can gather by the co reading and the o2 reading is that we are running fat. a couple things can cearte this one how many miles do we have on this mtr, two do we have a vacuumn leak? three is the vech going into closed loop? some how we need to get are hands on a scanner so we can look at a data, other wise you are going to be throwing parts at this vech , and thats not the way to fix your problem. the odds are that you may have some lazy o2 sensors you are close. have you tryed running the vech down the road before you go in for the test. the converter is like a hot water heater you have to bring it to operating temp before it will operate correctly. keep me informed

not enough info. Typically, CO and HC together can be the result of poor fuel control or misfire, or worn components such as O2 sensor or catalytic converter, but without more data, repair recommendations are likely to waste money and not achieve success.
