If you look at the transmission, you will find a drain plug on the bottom, look for a similar plug on the side of the transmission, take out plug and if oil is at the bottom of side plug hole, trans is full, if not refill here until oil is running out of hole, reinstall plug.

Ford festiva transmission

You have a manual transmission. The synchronizers are bad. Probably a couple of bad bearings also. Get a manual and buy the parts. Save yourself atleast a $1000 labor from a garage.

We have a 1998 ford festiva trio wb, have lost low beam on headlights, high beam and park work, have done checked connections,lamps, switch mech and continuity of conductors, all appears ok, do you know...

The best place I've found for electrical diagrams is, but it will cost, it's not free. I'm not sure what they charge for this, but it's based on Chilton Manuals, which have electrical diagrams in them.

I can't give it to you for free, even from my online resource, because doesn't seem to copy and paste from that to the website.

Grinding noise in transmission ford festiva 1996

If you are correct about the grinding noise and it is coming from the trani and not the wheel bearings or something else. Then I think you may have a serious problem. When was the last time the fluid was changed?
Was does the trani fluid look like and how is the level?
When do you hear the noise? How does it shift and drive?

Hello, I assume you mean the transmission gear oil. I have the original shop manual for the 1992 Festiva so I can answer any questions that it covers if you like. The gear oil is replaced through the speedometer cable insert, where it enters the top of the transmission. When you remove the speedometer cable, you will see two lines on the insert that screws into the hole and you fill the transmission up to the level of the top line when warm.

Wher can i find car service manual for ford fiesta

Chilton's and Haynes both sell manuals covering the Festiva and you can get them at most auto parts stores. They may have to order them for you, however. Also you can get one at on their book site. Also, your local library might have the general book that covers all the Fords from that year.
