Hi my fiesta had the same trouble i changed plugs and leads and coilpack to no avail... it turned out to be the head, i had to buy an engine rather than opening it up to see if the rings and seals where damaged

What is the cylinder head bolts torque setting for a ford fiesta 1999 1.25?

Hello friend,
Copied from here

You will have to use an online converter from Ft/lbs to Nm if you want Imperial.

'the sequence is as follows...

8 - 6 - 1 - 3 - 9
10-4 - 2 - 5 - 7

STAGE 1: tighten to 15Nm
STAGE 2: tighten to 30Nm
STAGE 3: tighten 90 degrees

the camshaft carrier/capa are tightened to 15Nm.'

I have a MK IV ford fiesta and require the gearbox oil capacity. The vehicle is a 1998 1.8D, endure engine

good old fiesta with a endure engine ,run for ever this motor maybe not the fastest thing on 4 wheels but what a work tool ,anyway gearbox oil is EP 90 and if its completely empty then i would expect to top up to the filler plug with around 3 pints 1.9 litres acording to my alldata book .but then i always pump a grease gun full of LM grease into a box as well then top up with the EP oil as this grease settles to the bottom of the box and seals up any leaks in the casing .Old fleet fitters trick from the days when mechanics were mechanics and not unit changers

Your wheel bearing is on its way out, should be around £150 to fix maybe cheaper. Don't forget to rate me.

Cuts out when cold

sounds like your inlet manifold hedgehog type heater.... a little electric heater in the inlet manifold basically for cold running.. much like diesel glow plugs kind of idea... this heater is usually bolted up into the bottom of the inlet manifold and has one feed wire to it...
