Question about 1995 Ford Escort
You tried the rest, now the best :-) You have a thermal problem. Please check the primary connections at the coil, rusty or loose, fix them up, check all your grounds around the engine compartment and all the connections at the battery. Check under the footwell for wiring that may have been disturbed by a clumsy inspector when he was driving it- anything loose or hanging under the drivers side dash. After doing all of this very carefully and you don't have any success, CHANGE THE MAIN RELAY. It will be in the fuse block box , I believe on the left side of the engine compartment. This relay controls power to the fuel pump and ignition. They do have thermal problems just like this. If this does not work, I have more, I am relentless and will work with you until it's fixed.

Check the idle air control valve. This sounds like it is not working right. it controls how much air the engine gets when it is idling. the pcm tells it to open more or close. they get old and dont respond fast enuf.
Maybe your ignition module was just about to go bad anyway, and the Multiple Spark Discharge fried it. I had a bad ignition module
First, are your injectors reasonably squirting fuel when you turn the key on?
As other`s suggested, try replacing the ignition control module. They does`nt usaully last which long in my experience. As such the ~$40 or whatrever to replace it is worth it verses being stranded again. Thank You
