MISSFIRE, POPPING & STALLS.

1998 Ford Puma

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Ford Puma 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

Hi, I have just carried out a headgasket repair on a ford puma 1.7 zetec se engine. Everything went well until I started it up and it initially revs high for a few seconds & then missfires erratically pops & eventually stalls.
i used all the timing tools to ensure tming was done correctly but I will re check. Anyway, is there anything else I can check, air leak?
Could it be a valve sticking? Oil was very sludgy and I have changed, what else!
