Once after clutch slave cylinder exchange once i've lost two cylinders on the motorway
(it happened with my 1.5 IE, it has similar waste spark ignition). The car was able to
maintain 65MPH with two cylinders (a bit more depressed accelerator pedal),
the passengers didn't noticed it, and they wondering why i'm pulling over.
In my case the problem was a bad connection at the dual ignition power module
(this is not exists on the 1.4 IE). The problem could be solved on the roadside
within 3 minutes, by disconnecting/connecting the appropriate connector a few times.
On the video @ 1:17 (when leaving the ranch) during the left turn there was a
misfiring too (it can be heard), and the engine wasn't able to accelerate the
car in 2nd gear, a backshift to the 1st gear was needed.
