Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
Very common on these cars is a design flaw that leads the hose connecting the crankcase to the intake manifold to melt through, introducing a vacuum leak and causing a rough idle. it may be that. an easy way to check is to spray starter fluid down in the area slightly under the throttle body, also around the left front (while standing in front of the car) area of the engine. if it revs up, that means there is a hole in your hose.

There are only few things that cause this, 1st and most common is a restricted PCV (positive crankcase ventalation system) or a problem with the engines piston rings or a scoured cylinder allowing combustion pressure to leak into the crankcase.
