  • 1995 Ford Festiva clutch playing up

    The most obvious thing is that the clutch has gone, but before you replace check that the clutch is disengaging when you depress the pedal.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra Servicing schedule

    If you have the service book you will find the service schedule printed in that. If you don’t have the book, then work on intervals of around 10,000 km or six months. Again, if you have the service book check to see when the cam timing belt was last changed. It should have been changed at around 100,000 km and will next require changing at the 200,000 km mark if it hasn’t been changed in the meantime.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra E10/E5 fuel for Festiva

    We checked with the Biofuels people and they told us that Ford’s advice was that E5, a five per cent ethanol blend is okay, but E10 is not. They went on to say that given the age of your car and the fact that there have been no side effects from running on E10 so far that you are not likely to see any side effects. On that advice you’re probably ok to use E10.

  • Bearings on a Ford

    We haven't received any reports of problems with wheel bearings on these cars. The Festiva was on the market for a long time and there was nothing to suggest there was a widespread problem with it, and while the Fiesta hasn't been here for a very long time it doesn't appear to have a history of problems in that area either.
