You need a timing light (assuming that it is the ignition timing that you want to set)
Locate the timing mark in the crankshaft pulley and mark it with chalk or tippex.
Locate the timing marks on the engine front casing.
Have the engine at operating temperature and connect the timing light to the #1 plug or lead(you can do that with the engine running if it is an inductive timing light with a clamp that goes over the cable).
loosen the distributor clamp and, with the light aimed at the timing marks and the engine at idle, adjust the distributor until the crankshaft mark lines up with the specified advance mark on the casing.
Tighten the distributor clamp and remove the timing light.
Be careful of pulleys, belts and fans, all can cause serious injuries if fingers, hair or clothing get caught up in them.

89 ford festiva l wont go into 5th gear how do i fix it


88 - 89 festiva "L" models came with a 4 speed. Unless it has been swapped with a 5 speed from an 88 - 89 "LX" or a 90 - 93 festiva 4 gears is all you have. Everything you ever wanted to know about your festiva can be found a fordfestiva.com. I've seen 8 festivas with 500,000 miles now. They are bullet proof and big time fun. Easy to work on too. And most owners are really down to earth because we don't care what people think of us. Festivas are also easy and cheap to make very fast. Get on the forum. We will welcome you!

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.

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.
