Replace the idle air control valve. Mine just did it today the 15th of August. I replace the Idle air control valve and problem solve. I have a 2000 Expedition 5.4 liter.

Just a little suggestion. IF this is a 1993 it is fuel injected.the car starts and runs for a few seconds and then dies. You are on the right track by checking the spark and fuel delivery. If you have both of these when it dies i would check injector pulse. the use of a noid light would be the quickes method.They can be purched at the parts house for pretty cheep.If you have no injector pulse then it cuts the fuel off to the engine.Replace the ignition module (contols spark and injector pulse) i have ran across a few that will lose only one of the outputs, insted of both of them. Now if you have fuel and fire, i would check to see if the cat. converter is damaged or cloged thus restricting the exhaust and stalling the engine. Hope this helpes.

after you replaced the fuel pump did you replace the fuel filter also check out the EGR valve and all vacuum lines especially the one behind the throttle body

Mass air flow sensor or Manifold absolute pressure sensor are two sensors which are interconnected with the EGR valve and both will affect engine performance, in particular the idle.
I don't know which of these sensors the ford escape has , but I would check it out.

change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.
you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.
