You have a throttle problem (it gets stuck) take it to a mechanic and have it cleaned and greased up and that should solve your problem.

Escort 1 6 zetec engine revs high when stationary and tries to run away when driving. Have checked the throttle linkage, and all is moving as it should be. If the throttle is blipped it acts as if it has...


i think the problem is the idle\air control module if you have one take it out and clean it. the idle module works when your vehicle is idleing. A clogged throttle body or intake would cause the module to compensate for the problem by allowing air in and around the throttle body bypassing it. so i think some thing in the intake system is clogged.

Idle irratic


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Engine runs on when driving along


Sounds like the choke is sticking on, that would also explain the heavy fuel consumption

Engine dieing


Sounds like bad carbon build up, have you tryed using fuel injection cleaner yet? Because of the buildup, I would suggest putting it in with only a half a tank (to get a higher concentration of cleaner vers fuel). Once in, run it down the highway (the cleaner works best when the engine is hot) until you are almost out of gas, then fill it up and add another bottle of injector cleaner (alway add the injector cleaner after filling as the cleaner will foam if added before and this will lead to gas spillage at the pumps). Run the car normally. If it is just carbon, by you next tank of gas the problem should be solved. As pervention, I recomend using fuel injection cleaner every 4 tank fulls (for most people it works out to about once a month).
