To all who have the low Idle problem spoke with a ford tech.
The THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR may be the problem he told me that the sensor does not report info to the computer when it goes bad the computer goes crazy throws all kind of codes from bad parts to miss fire.
I posted 2 other times read Escort not running 100% part 1 & part 2 sounds like many problems some of you guys were having. Hope this helps. I am jumping the gun just got the info & I have not replaced the sensor yet but will post if it works. This part goes for approx $35 to $40 at the dealer & approx 1/2 at auto part stores.

Interesting. This info would make sense. I know the old EEC IV systems had similar issues. If the TP sensor would go bad, you would have nasty stumbles at idle, stalling, low idle, high idle, or revving idle and it would not necessarily set a fault code. Do you know if the TP sensors on the Escorts are adjustable or do they just screw on? If they are adjustable like the old ones, that could be the issue as well.

Any word on replacing the TPS yet?
