If it were the speedometer cable, that he reckons, it would squeak if the grease dried out. Take the speedometer cable out and regrease with the same type.

However, it probably would be easier to replace the cable than to regrease with the 'proper' grease as the manufacturer probably does not publish this data.

I would check other sources for the squeaking, however, like a belt squealing, for instance.

It's hard to determine what is squeaking without actually hearing it.

good luck on this one.

How to fix a belt that is making a loud noise on a 1994 Ford Taurus


If it is a loud squeaking sound, the belt is stretched out too far for the tensioning pulley to take up the slack. Check if the belt has grease or oil on it. If it does find the cause, fix the cause and then change the belt...there is no tension adjustment to be made,

Sounds like the CV joint is shot - this is a front-wheel drive car, right. The side that it jumps to has a bad CV bearing that needs to be replaced would be my bet.

WHERE DO I REFILL GEAR OIL FOR 1992 FESTIVA


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.
