This could possibly be a timing belt issue. In some cases the water pump will lock up, which is driven by timing belt on Escorts, and strips or breaks timing belt. This can be determined by removing the top center cover at front of engine and checking the belt.
You are going to need to do some testing to find this...first thing I'd look at is to check for any intake or vacuum line leaks, then check map sensor and tps. I can only offer a good guess, as I too would need to do testing before offering anything better. You can get test info in most inexpensive manuals.
If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.
I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.
