Question about 1988 Ford Festiva
Idle goes up and down and then it stall
Believe it or not, you have a fuse for ENGINE. Check it, and change it if necessary. It sounds crazy, I know! :-]

TPS(throttle position sensor)may be bad.Usually easy and not to expensive to replace.

It is a combinatioin of a choke problem...and settings called idle air mixture screw........the choke is adjusted too high.....(increasing the amount of fuel entering the engine)...and then it leans out (not enough fuel) for idle.........i would suggest that you take it to a mechanic who "tunes" carburettors...a sprecialist so to speak, as it is a dying art...or take it to the dealership.........this would be a last option......beacuse it does not have a computer...its a case of listening and observing what the engine does and how it behaves as the screws are adjusted.......so it would be nearly impossible for me or anytone to be able to do it over a medium like this.......
