The symptom you discribe sound like a bad throttle position switch.(T.P.S. switch) test, replace, and calibrate switch & prob should go away. good luck.

Engine runs on when driving along


Sounds like the choke is sticking on, that would also explain the heavy fuel consumption

Replace the Spark Plug wires, they burn through and short to the valve cover/cylinder head causing a miss under load, very common concern with this Mazda engine that was used in your Escort GT. Buy the best wire set you can find, or the problem will re-occur very quickly. Auto-lite makes a good set at a good price, avail at most chain parts stores like Kragen, Auto Zone etc.
