Question about 1999 Ford Escort
I have changed plugs and wires and valve cover gaskets as well. There is no longer oil leaking in the cylinders. It does sound like there is a vacuum leak which I can't locate. But, if the vacuum was causing the issue it should always run bad, (warm or cold).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Idle Air Control is the most likely problem, although there could be something else. But I would check that first on any ford with these symtoms.

I had this problem once on an econoline van and it was the plantum gasket but before you change this check all the vacuum lines and get a digital volt meter and test the voltages on the mass air flow sensor and if you have to change the plantum gasket auto zone can print you out a diagram stating all you have to remove to replace it

SOURCE: oil on front spark plugs
I just had this problem with my 2002 Ford explorer. I took it to the shop and it was the valve cover gasket. This was causing some slippage and white smoke from exhaust.

you need to have the engine coolant switch
checked,since the computer relies solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the
computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the
computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting
a car in the winter without a choke.
