SOURCE: 1994 ford escort vibrates horribly in idle.

Your Idle air control valve is probably going bad. It is located on the throttle body and is a relatively easy fix as it is only held in with 2 screws. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: 1993 Ford Escort Automatic Shoulder Harness

To access the passive restraint cable, cable guide and motor, remove the upper plastic cover across the door by pulling it straight out, then remove the rear lower interior panel in the same fashion, the seatbelt system is now exposed, it is held to the car by 10 mm bolts and some phillips head screws, and a large torx bolt at the bottom behind the motor in lower section. Most of these systems fail due to the cable breaking, it is difficult to replace, the entire system can be replaced with another one from a salvaged vehicle, or new from the dealer, however the new from dealer is about $500 dollars. Hope this helps.

Ford escort won't idle sputter out rpm go below 1000

This is usually caused by having a vacuum hose come off or
connected to the wrong place. The diagram is under the hood.
Also the cold air bypass could be dirty and need cleaning. I use
carb cleaner in a spray can.
Other check air filter, plugs, wires.

1993 ford escort automatic 4cylinder idles rough occasionally. No check engine light I just need advice on what it may be it runs excellent once I put it in gear and go

This is often caused by hard engine mounts and a dirty idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Clean the intake following these instructions, that should improve the idle issue.
Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes.

The car could probably use a tune-up. Also, check both ends of the PCV line for soft/deteriorated elbows as a vacuum leak here would cause the car to die at idle.

Cant contoll idle on 93 ford escort it ether idles to high or to low very erratic

It has been my experience that the Idle air control valve on this engine is frequently the problem. It sits right on top of the engine atop the throttle body. It is very easy to replace with little or no experience. Two screws and an electrical connection. It is not cheap however. It will probably run you around $50-$75 for a new one. If money is tight you might try to find one in a salvage yard. Hope this helps.
