They had a problem with this plastic washer that is in the shifter tower it sits just under the shifter it self and gets worn out and causes this to happen- hope that helps.

I am going to assume this is a manual transmission, if it is 5th and reverse are on the same selector set, the only solution is to strip the transmission and check out whats broken.

SOURCE: What is the recommended engine oil for 95 ford festiva trio?

Hi!
Most modern engines use 10/40 or similar.
20/50 was well used in older classic vehicle. I would ask at your parts supplier when purchasing the oil, he or she will have the correct specifications on hand from their oil supplier.
Hope this helped!

SOURCE: 1993 ford festiva trio carby problem, auto choke

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.

How do i check the gearbox oil level in a 1999 ford festiva trio s 5 speed


Remove the speedometer cable and driven gear from the transaxle case. Wipe the gear clean and reinsert it. Pull it out again there is a small tab on the driven gear, there is a notch on the tab full in the first indentation and below the tab add fluid.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go into 5th or reverse, however it will go into gear 1 to 4


5th and reverse gears are on the same selector rail. It is possible that the selector fork has come loose for the 5th gear or reverse. Remove the gear lever turret section of the box and see if the selector rail is moving gears or the rail itself.

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.

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!
