You have left out many variables that could lead to a solution to this problem. please list when your last tune up was conducted and was it a Major tune up or just oil plugs and wires... the more info the better. Manual trans or automatic? You could need a fuel system service or air filter replacement. Also you could have a clogged cat-alic converter. remember what goes in must come out.

My escort rs 2000 is mifiring at low revs and is slow at picking up than normal help lol.

When was the last time the timing belt replaced. What happens is the camshaft starts retarding itself and the valves are opening and closing at the wrong time in which can very well cause misfiring and definitely loss of power. It has been replaced, take a look at your plugs/wires. Check the condition of the air filter, it may be getting plugged up and air can't get into the engine causing the engine to load up and low rpm.
