  • Speed problems

    Ok so my 91 festiva is having some speed problems I redid clutch over summer and it has not been doing well since before shifting the car begins to buck starting at 10mph stops after shifting into second but begins shortly before having to shift to third then when in fifth as soon as I reach 55mph it disengages till speed is 45mph and then re engages till reaching 55mph again where again drops so far I have replaced the fuel filter the spark plugs distributor and rotor I don't know much at all

      Does it feel like the bucking is clutch slipping or engine missing? I get clutch slipping (chatter) in moist summer weather when pulling away form a stop but nothing like what you discribe. Yours sounds more like an engine miss, possibly from deteriorating ignition components. I'd start by cleaning and gapping the spark plugs, cleaning the wires and distributor cap and coil, and if the problem persists begin replacing igntion components starting with the oldest ones first. When I was doing the annual summer cleaning of my ignition components I pulled the high voltage wire out of the top of the coil and there was corosion in there, on a relatively new coil. Cleaned it out with steel wool and sealed it with a dab of grease.

            Assume you've checked the level of fluid in the transmission?
