Question about 1991 Ford Festiva

Car wont start. It makes the sound that it wants to, but doesnt actually kick in. sometimes, if pushed it will, but today not even that will work, not even 2nd gear bump start. It happened 2 weeks ago, and i had a quater tank of petrol, I went and got more and manually put it in. Then the car started. it also somrtimes cuts out, like a silent stall, when im driving.

I have the same problem sometimes it just will not start,then I take a wrench and pound on the fuel filter.
I will eventually replace the fuel filter.
Some times the gas tank will get pieces of rust or debris then some how it will lodge in the fuel line or filter tapping this with a wrench will dis lodge this and the car will run.

Could my battery be frozen? Do I need a new battery?

Your battery is not frozen. In cold weather, a weak battery--one that needs to be replaced--may not work. The cold makes an already weak battery even weaker.

My ride on was running fine today i turned it off while i opened a gate but tried to start it and it wont turn over doesnt even make a sound

Most ride ons have a ignition isolation switch attached to the seat as a safety system. Look for this switch and the wires that are attached for any bad connections.

Jenifer, it sounds like the oil lines from the oil pump are clogged or the pump itself is defective. Please do not run the engine until you get it checked out. If the oil pump in the bottom pan is not pushing oil to the top of the engine the valves and cams are not being lubricated and will burn up...Bue, Bye engine!

Heater blower motor doesnt work once in a while when you start the car. Sometimes it kicks on when it feels like it. Today doesnt work at all. Do you think its the motor or resistor/relay?

sounds more like the control panel. give it a couple of turns clockwise and counterclockwise or up and down depending on the type of control panel and see if it tries to start. if so, then it's your panel switch.
