Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Sometimes when I pull up the car stalls. It always starts immediatly and idles fine. This happens about 50% of the time when I pull up.
The problem is with your Idle Control Valve.
Look in the middle of the engine and you will see a plastic air box. Fastened to this will be the valve, a small cylinder with a wire connected to it, should be held on by 2 bolts
Undo the bolts and remove the valve. Spray WD40 into the two holes until it runs clear then rinse with petrol and let it dry.
Replace and bobs your uncle, should work fine.
You can replace the item for around £25
