Do you have to take the motor out to change the front crank seal in a 91 ford festiva?

it would be easier but you can probably get away with loosening the engine mounts and letting the engine drop a little bit to gain acsess to the seal easier...

How to remove clutch on 92 festiva and replace new one?

firstly are you very mechanically minded? if not dont attempt this as its not easy and will require special tools... such as the tool to line the clutch exactly in line with where the gearbox shaft goes into the motor.... if you are going to do it you need to search around the outside of the gearbox and undo all the bolots that hold it to the motor... once every bolt holding it on is removed you will need to pull or push it away from the motor so it can drop down ( the car will need to be on blocks or a hoist.... once gearbox is off you will need to remove the clutch and pressure plate .... i would recommend if you are replacing clutch to possibly do pressure plate also... once these are removed you will need to fi the new one.... this is where you need the alignment tool... without it you will more then likely not get it in the right spot.. once it is placed onto the motor you can think about putting the gearbox back in... same process as removing only in reverse.... hope this helps... i will once again mention you will need certain toolds to do this job easily... any more questions feel free to ask...

Need to change timing belt in 93 ford festiva but know nothing about cars, only have enough money to buy the belt and was told I already have the tools

Changing the timing belt is something that usually needs done if it has not been changed and the car has over $100,000 miles. Most Festivas last for a lot longer than that. Mine is going on well over 200,000! All you need is the Festiva shop manual which you can find on eBay for about $10 to $30, if you hunt around and wait for a bargain. The manual fully explains every step and makes it easy if you are mechanically inclined. If you are new to auto repair, make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing check it for you, so that the repair will be safe and last. If you have a large library near you, its possible to find a Chiltons or other brand of repair manual that covers your Festiva timing belt repair procedure.

'92 Ford Festiva stalls when overheats

it sounds like your radiator fan is not working. once your engine reaches a certan temp. the fan should come on to cool it down. also might be the thermostat is not opening. it is not good for the motor at all to over heat and stall. you could ruin your engine. i would change thermostat first and then run it till it starts getting hot to see if the fan kicks on. if it doesn't, it could be the coolant sensor or the fan itself. good luck.

Change ford festiva front light bulb

Hello, the front light bulbs are easily changed by twisting the plastic holder in the back of the lamp that holds the bulb counter-clockwise. You turn it about a 1/4 turn and then it pulls out and you can switch bulbs. Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers because oil from your fingers will cause the bulb to burn out quickly.
