my tracer recently just started missing at low rpms..(for example, if I am in second gear turning on to a street and i'm going a little too slow, the engine will miss)...it does it sometimes when I am pulling out too...basically any time I am around 1000-1500 rpms....what do you think? spark plugs?

it's interesting because I was going to buy another escort a month ago...and it did the exact same thing...it would miss at low rpms, but it was sporadic...coincidence? or is this a common thing?

all I can think of is plugs and wires perhaps...

you have a standard trans ? right

Are you decelerating or accelerating?

If you are decelerating and this problem happens it could be your tensioner on your timing belt or a very worn timing belt
