Ford festiva no go

Asked by May 24, 2017 at 03:22 PM about the 1989 Ford Festiva LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 89 ford festiva wont stay running. Ive
replaced the carb, fuel filter and sparks
plugs, all are good, giving spark fuel pump is
spitting gas, but it wont stay running. I have
to have the gas pedal to the floor just to get
it to 500 rpm. If i spray starter fluid in the
breather it appears to back fire. I replaced
the thermostat and thats when it wouldnt
run anymore, but i checked and its in there
perfectly fine. Im at the end of my rope here.
Any ideas?
