New to working on cars, picked up 88 Ford Festiva for $350 last summer, lost job, got new job paying minimum wage with a 34 mile drive one-way. Only getting 25mpg, asked local shop cost for tune-up, they said $222.55 !
Went to parts store, got list of parts, only $65 total, replaced fuel filter, but my regular spark plug socket nor any of my other, larger deep sockets fit the plugs.
Looking for any and all instructions for doing my FIRST tune-up, and strting with 1988 Ford Festiva, which was supposed to get about 40mpg.
Thank you for any and all advice and patience as I learn.
