Question about 1995 Ford Escort
It sounds like an air fault, check all your air pipes for any leaks or rips etc. And also the air mass sensor, if the air mass sensor is faulty then it will not run properly, A lot of the time you can just clean them up with some carburettor cleaner and re-fit them. this normally sorts the issue, although at times they will need to be replaced, cost new is about £30 even cheaper if you get one off ebay.
The other thing it could be which would also trigger the engine light and loss of power is the EGR valve, " Exhaust Gas Recycler Valve" this forces any unburned fuel back through the engine to reduce the emissions, if these are faulty you can also clean these with carb cleaner before replacing, does not always work but it's worth a go.
As it is stumbling from idle I would check the air flow sensor, this is located on the air box and is very easy to remove and clean, it is also very common on fords.
If you need specific information please get back to me for assistance.
Try the above mentioned, if the light go's off then you know what the issue is.

The computer is blaming the idle air control valve,so,I would look at the e g r valve,make sure it is closing all the way,not staying open.Check all vacuums also,to make sure you have no leaks.
