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.

I have an 89 ford festiva and want to check the transmission fluid level where do i do that


Should be in the left rear section of the engine compartment. Small, yellow, loop, big enough to get your finger in. With a warm engine, pull it out, wipe it off with a clean cloth, reinsert, pull back out to check fluid level.

Wher is the refill point for a Festiva 1996 manual transmission?


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.
