Sounds like the thermostat is failing.

Thermostats fail in 2 ways: (a) sticking open (b) stick closed

Your seems to be sticking open - and so the engine warms up VERY slowly,
but still throws a little heat out the vents - less heat over time so that
your daughter didn't even notice the gradual decrease over time.

If you can replace the thermostat on your own, your cost may be less than $5.
To get a new thermostat (always buy parts on your own - the garage will charge a
50% surcharge on any parts they have to locate for your car), try Wal-mart first
(they sell a few thermostats for a few cars), then any auto parts place.

Replacing a thermostat in a 1998 Fiesta ZTEC engine should be the first thing
a DIY mechanic learns after figuring out how to do regular maintenance items - since
stuff like distributor cap/ distributor rotor/ thermostat are actually regular maintanance
items - destined to have a limited life span, like any moving part.

Change light bulbs on my fiesta zetec 05 . I have a problem after replacement my tail gate light stay on have I put the right bulbs in


What lamps were you having a problem? So there is a lamp on your dash that says tail gate is open? There is usually a switch or sensor for that?
Maybe I misunderstood your problem?
If the tail gates lamps at the rear are staying on, no matter what you do, I'd have to check wiring diagrams for that lamp control.
