1996 ford escort, new fuel pump, but car hesitates when I pull around a corner, dies then starts immediately

have you put the fuel pump in right sounds like the fuel is not getting to the pump. did you change the filter on the bottom of the pump. could also be a bad wire to the pump and movement is knocking out the power to the pump. also when you changed the pump did you take out the relay for the pump? before changing the pump.

Car starts hesitating and jerking

I suspect the fuel level sensor is wrong and you are really starting to run out of gas. The other reason would be a broken tank baffle that keeps fuel around the inlet to the electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

Hesitates badly and almost stalls when accelerater is depressed. Improves as car warms up.Air filter is new. Spark plugs are new. Mass air sensor is clean. Runs good other than the iniatial hesitation....

Possible, but it is for sure a fuel issue and must be checked starting from a choked fuel line, low fuel pressure at the pump or a bad blocked injector which improve on heat.
You will need to check the details of each to finalise the suspect.

Your fuel pump is in the tank and the fuel pump check valve is is malfunctioning. You need to replace the fuel pump. To test newer fuel pumps like your you have to put a gage on the valve you pressed in and turn the key on and look at the fuel pressure if it goes to 50 PSI then turn key off if it drops below 20 psi with 30 seonds the fuel pump check valve is bad. Replace with OEM part from the dealer. after market part fuel pumps burn up quick. also change the fuel pump and fuel filter. this is a 4 hour job for a first timer mechanic the pump is causeing all of your problems. Let me know if you want detailed information to repalce the pump. it cost about $195.00 does it have duel tanks? if it does the switching valve may be defective as well.

Low idle and hesitation when driving

i had a similar problem, with a different car though, and it turned out that the seals in the fuel pumps had been eaten away by the ethanol in the fuel i was using. i had the fuel pumps replaced as well as the filter and switched to a different fuel that contained no ethanol and i haven't had a problem since.
