my 1.6 escort estate zetec engine keeps mis-firing when ever i drive it, i replaced the plugs which helped a little but within a few weeks the mis-firing got worst.
I did run it out of petrol once and since then i've had this mis-fire but the car only does short jorneys, any advice would be great.
Also my heater blower has stopped working, i can feel the heat coming out but only very slightly as the heater blower doesn't work. i have checked the fuse.

misfiring and very little from the heater.....sounds like your head gasket is going i'm afraid.
i might be wrong and i hope i am.

when you ran out of petrol you could have sucked gunge into the fuel filter and got a partual blockage. with your heater it could be the relay,resistor pack or the switch itself.
