is your car the model with the carb? to me it sounds like its a problem with the flow of petrol, there are 3 reasons i can think of for the spluttering......
1. petrol not getting into the carb properly
2. the timing of the engine
3. spark plugs
have you taken the spark plugs out and checked to see if they are wet? if they are wet it means too much fuel is getting through hence the spluttering, it may even be that your carb needs rebuilding. i hope this helps. let us know how you get on with it.
I have a p reg 1300 fiesta and i have had it for 3 years never really had any problems. Just lately its started spluttering and after a cuople of minutes it will suddenly kick back in and i have a strong smell of fuel?,, it has been to a local garage and i don,t know if they are cowboys or not but they gave it me back and said they could,nt do anything because they could,nt find anything? i do not have a fuel leak as there is nothing under my car it just rund terrible and uses quite a lot of fuel. Can someone help please its driving me mad many thanks vicky

just read your diagnosis below...I have a smilar situation. I've replaced my air control valve which worked for a while, but now I'm back to cutting out after breaking or slowing. Can you explain where abouts I should be checking for any split?
Thanks in advance
I had something similar when i braked. Turned out to be a split on the air intake and the air was bypassing the air intake meter. he braking part is due to the weight of the engine and the gearing that causes the enine to move forward slightly, thus creating a bigger gap in the air intake and then too much air getting in.
