My car has 178000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, both the ’97 and ’98 Festivas are "2nd generation" models, so most body parts (including the speedometer) should (no guarantee here), be compatible. Engine parts (thermostat housing) should be compatible if they were from the same engine series - both a 1.3l and a 1.5l engine were offered on both models. Most engine parts will not be compatible across the 2 engine series. Similarly, parts between manual and automatic transmissions will not be compatible. If your run into any issues and need some assistance, feel free to contact one of our mobile technicians who can come to your home and service your vehicle. Best of luck.
