Ok guys my car is a 89 1.9 L, The car seems to "bogg" down and then the rpm goes nuts up and down, up and down. I have the let off the gas and tap it hard to sorta normalize then it contimues to do it all over again. I have to sometime turn my car off in the middle of traffic because it somtimes "resets" the problem and then goes away. Please help.... I have ordered a TPS but scepticle about it. Should i do the EGR too or just do the TPS..... My car is and ATX and when this erattic behavior happens it knocks the engine all around and it did break my rear mount as of today. Thanks.

IMO (i too have an 89 escort) that mount had to be on its last limb, i suggest doing a tune up, changing the fluids. Belive it or not, with out the proper antifreeze in there that 1.9 gets pretty erattic, easy way to tell, is your fan on all the time, only when the car runs??? My problem persisted amongst the AC clutch/relay and the fact i had a small coolant leak. Also you may want to change the 02 sensor, that could possibly have somthing to do with it. It sounds like a major TPS problem, mine went and i was having similar problems.
