Hi and welcome :)

As Dez said you have a MK5, and with the 1300cc engine it's the singlepoint injected 8valve (OHV).

Many thanks lads :)

As i am getting on a bit , i look back to the 80's when i had a fiesta ghia (square shape) then moved on to a white mk2 xr2 ... both were fantastic cars and both reliable and easy to work on. Nowadays i find getting under the car a real chore. This fiesta is for her 17th birthday in June , she does not know she has it yet as she lives with her mum. I just want to get it right for her.
Hope to keep on here as i will be maintaining the fiesta. And i am sure all your input will be invaluable. Will get some pics up soon .

Once again , many thanks ......Harry :)

Glad to be of assistance mate and definitely get some pictures posted up when you can. You've had some real nice cars, I'm from the younger generation so missed out on what we'd now consider as the 'classics' but boy do I wish I could have been about in those days haha.

Best of luck and if you want service items I can point you to some good sellers on eBay. I replaced my spark plugs with some nice NGK's and they cost me about 6 which is good. Considering Halfords wanted over 20!
