Question about 1997 Ford Escort
The only thing in the chain you haven't done yet is the pulse transducer in the distributor. I don't know if it is at fault since they often fail completely, not intermittently, but I would probably replace that too if it was my problem.
Before you do that though, it would be wise to locate the connectors that are surely between the transducer and the rest of the ignition system. The voltages & currents that are produced by the transducer are small and a lightly corroded connection could cause the kind of problem you are having.
