Sounds like it needs a good service, especially if it is jumping like it is missing on a cylinder....

i have just finished tuning the misses festiva, found a difference with the spark plugs, motor traders said there are 3 engines used in the WB-WBII, 1500, 1300, 1300 SOHC NA, all uses a specific style and temp plug, ours was running rough as, fitted new plugs(correct type and temp), and what-do-ya-know!, runs sweet as now.

Don't know what year you have but the Festivas I had there was an idle adjust screw under a black rubber plug by the TPS.
