I have a 92 Bronco and the plug on mine is on the passenger side lower corner. It faces the passenger seat & looks like a black wingnut.

SOURCE: 93 ford festiva heater only blows cold air.

The heater only blows HOT air when set on defrost or floor settings. If you have the lever set for vent, only cold air will come out. Check to make sure you set the controls to floor or defrost. This is standard for all Festiva's.

The radiator may be limed up - flushing won't fix that. If that is so, you would have to remove the end caps and rod out the core to break the lime loose and clear it (i. e., take it to a radiator shop). I assume the fins on the outside of the radiator are clean and not all smashed flat.

Do you have evidence of overheating other than what the temperature sensor is telling you? If you can get your hands on an infrared (remote - non-contact) thermometer, see how hot it is at the water pump and thermostat housing.

SOURCE: 1990 ford festiva over heated and blew radiator

Probably blew the head gasket, warped the head or the timing belt is broken. Look inside the oil fill cap and watch to see if anything is moving inside, cam shaft or rockers, when you crank the engine over. If you can see them and they don't move, the belt is broken. Probably time to get rid of it and find something else to drive.

I have oil leaking into my 1990 ford festivas radiator,what could be causing this?Is this a serious problem?


It could be the transmission oil leaking since the transmission fluid goes through the bottom of the radiator to cool off. You may need to replace the radiator. But if it's motor oil then there is a blown gasket on the motor or crack. Look at the motor oil on the dip stick and see if it looks normal or is milky looking indicating that there is also water in your motor. If it's just the radiator then it's not a serious as it is if the water is in the motor. Motor will be damaged with water in it.

Need to replace engine thermostat on 1990 festiva


follow the top radiator hose fron radiator to engine, there at end of the hose is the thermostat housing. remove hose from engine side, also remove the 2 bolts from housing to reveal the thermostat. remember which way the thermostats positioned in the housing. replace with your new one and also new gasket. reinstall your hose and you should be good to go.be prepared to lose some fluid when you remove the top radiator hose. i've always found that a little rtv glue'''blue glue''' will hold the gasket in place while you're replacing you thermostat. hope this helps!!

I have a 1990 Ford Festiva that has oil in the coolant. There is no water in the oil and the car runs fine. We replaced the head gasket and the radiator and it still gets oil in the radiator.


it is very hard to get all residue out of coolant, try to flush with water and fill with water and dish liquid about 1/4 cup, run at high idle approx 1500rpm for 20-30mins, and then flush out and try that, if head gaskets and rad was done properly there is no reason for oil in coolant except for left over oil

Temp gauge stopped working ford fiesta 97/ 1.25


Festiva? Really? How many miles on it? The probe in the neck of the radiator inlet is bad or crusty...$40 maybe.
Good Luck
