How does it feel in 3-4-5 gears? Good power? Fuel filter and spark problems are usually prevalent in all gears especially higher ones. How is going up hills? Get back to me and maybe I could help.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

SOURCE: MY 98 FORD WINDSTAR STALLS WHEN I IDLE OR COMING

I'd be looking at removing IAC valve, and cleaning it out with throttle body spray cleaner, and checking mounting gasket as well. Usually some success with cleaning it & spray ports it came out of, but if not you may need to replace it.

89 ford festiva l wont go into 5th gear how do i fix it


88 - 89 festiva "L" models came with a 4 speed. Unless it has been swapped with a 5 speed from an 88 - 89 "LX" or a 90 - 93 festiva 4 gears is all you have. Everything you ever wanted to know about your festiva can be found a fordfestiva.com. I've seen 8 festivas with 500,000 miles now. They are bullet proof and big time fun. Easy to work on too. And most owners are really down to earth because we don't care what people think of us. Festivas are also easy and cheap to make very fast. Get on the forum. We will welcome you!

Ford festiva


dump a bottle of carb/injector cleaner in the tank on your next fill up and just drive it, it should get better, if not the engine may be so worn that it has low compression.
