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

hi bit tricky u need to unclip the cloth from under the seat and roll it up half way till you can see the old cables then take the lever off and attach the new cable its usually the cable nearest the lever that breaks first
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
here is a list of possible causes. 1- worn,faulty or incorrect plug gaps 2- faulty HT leads 3- engine management fault. 4- vacuum leak on inlet manifold or hoses 5- incorrect valve clearances 6- faulty hydraulic tappets 7- uneven or low cylinder compressions 8- disconnected or leaking crank case ventilation hoses
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...
