Question about 1989 Ford Festiva

1 Answer

1989 Ford Festiva, keeps stalling as driving.

Son is driving back as we (speak) and it keeps stalling as he is driving on the highway and pulls over, then has to wait 10 minutes before it starts again. Can't go over 80 km, anything he can do to make it home?

I had the exact same problem. The cooling fan was failing to come on and thus overheating the engine. Check the cooling fan, cooling fan thermoswitch, and cooling fan relay ( behind drivers headlight ). If you pull the connector off of the thermoswitch the fan will come on whenever the car is in "run"

The two most likely causes are low fuel pressure because of a faulty fuel pump or filter, or a faulty throttle position sensor.
Is the check engine light on ?

I have an 89 ford festiva and want to check the transmission fluid level where do i do that


Should be in the left rear section of the engine compartment. Small, yellow, loop, big enough to get your finger in. With a warm engine, pull it out, wipe it off with a clean cloth, reinsert, pull back out to check fluid level.

take a 2 foot prybar, shimmy it up between the trans casing and the end of the shaft and pry. It will help if you have the halfshaft out of the spindle at the wheel hub.
