There are a few things that can cause this.
1 running your gas tank too low -junk in the gas clogs the gas filter -easy cheap fix
2 the idle could be off too much air or gas on the mixture going into the carb.
3 Timming. this should be done twice a year or so -need timing light -any garage can check it.
4 Need new spark plugs and or wires.
Start with these then see what happens.

Why does the engine stops when I hit the brakes and the car is in gear?


Could be a bad vacuum leak (a vacuum leak would cause a rough idle or high idle). Or the TCC solenoid is stuck on. Have the codes read.

What causes rough idle when car is in gear at stop


If this is a 4 banger, my friend had a this problem. This can sometimes be caused by the rubber motor mount has deteriorated. Also if the idle speed is low it will cause vibration. And for a final cure my car pool buddy's truck had a burnt valve, bummer.

My ford escape idle very rough. it accelerates fine. i need help to solve the problem


If your Escape is v-6 powered a common problem believe it or not is a solenoid in the transmission that allows the torque converter to "unlock" at idle. If the solenoid is bad then the torque converter stays locked and puts a load on the engine causing rough idle in gear at stop.

When a/c is turned on idles rough and rpms drop put in neutral and idles fine in gear rough idle when you come to stop already changed egr valve not the problem


See if the idle control is working. I have a protegee that does the same thing, although the cause of mine is diffrent, it is the torque converter clutch not disengaging when stopped. Read the code, and see if there are any. Auto Zone will read it for free and give you a print out.
