Question about 1993 Ford Festiva

1 Answer

93 Festiva stopped running while driving - no power to distributor

My 93 Festiva suddenly stopped running while driving - had to have it towed home. There was no power going to the distributor, so I replaced the ignition power unit module, since that was suggested as a possible remedy.

However, there is still no power going to the distributor.

What else can be replaced or tested? Is there a fuse involved with this circuit?

Your help is very much appreciated.

    Hi - I do appreciate the suggestion - it's the one part I haven't replaced yet. If this works, I'll come back and definitely give you top rating for the suggestion.



    Right now the weather is a bit questionable - the car's outside, I'll get to this when the weather improves a bit



    again, many thanks for at least trying to help

Ford festiva 1991, it jerks a lot while driving. specially wen it drive after 4-6hr


most likely its your distributor cap. if its old it means its worn out and water will get into the cap and cross wires, which makes one of the spark plugs skip. replace your distributor cap and rotor.

I need to set the timing on a 93 festiva


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.

Quits no spark for a while


It is most likely the thin wire that hangs off the side of the distributor. They often short out and have cracked insulation allowing them to short out. You can get a spark tested and connect it to on of the spark plug wires and crank the car and look for spark. If no spark there, check for spark at coil wire. If you have there but not at plug, you know the problem is between the primary and secondary system-meaning most likely the cap and/or rotor in the distributor or bad wire previously mentioned. Have you changed the cap and rotor yet? These are inexpensive and will often solve the problem especially when the problem is when it is damp outside. The problem is not the fuseable links on the shock tower, like the other person mentioned. It probably is a loose wire somewhere like the distributor wire.

You may need to look for a vacuum leak or double check your timing advance/****** is operating correctly.Use a can of carburettor cleaner lightly sprayed around suspect areas,do with engine running and if there is a leak it will stop the engine running.As far as the fuel system goes crimp the fuel return line with appropriate tool so you dont damage it and see if it improves.If it does you do have a fuel problem with the pump or the pressure relief valve
