are the front axles on a standard the same as an automatic on the festivas


Asked by Jul 12, 2010 at 11:36 AM about the Ford Festiva

Question type: General

1 Answer


No. The manual has a 32 or 34 spline drive axle (I can't remember which it is), whereas the automatic has a 24 spline drive axle. I found this out the hard way when I bought a reman drive axle from Advance and they only listed one. Turns out, with an automatic, Advance Auto Parts can only get brand spankin' new ones that cost twice as much with no core charge.
