Has the system that controls the engine been checked for fault codes?another problem is a crack forms in the air intake hose to the engine, remove the hose and bend and flex it and look for a crack, any crack allows to much air into the system and this causes a severs stumble off idle on acceleration

1997 Ford Escort stalling when going 35 mph or less.

You may need to be looking at your Torque Converter being in LOCK UP and forcing it to stall because the Transmission is not letting go of the Motor...

You may also have a Plugged CAT CONVERTER

Test the Temp BEFORE and AFTER.. There should be an INCREASE of at least 100 degrees on the BACK from the Front

My car starts up n run for thirty seconds then stalls. it stalls also when i press on the gas pedel.

Shortage of fuel is your problem. Please make sure that enough fuel is reaching the injectors/cylinders . And while you are at it please clean the air filters as well.

Car judders and stalls when stopping

Sounds like a weak battery, have the battery tested, if it gives out a low voltage or other faulty behaviour the computer will not run right, making the guages mess up and the engine run badly. Replace it if it is "weak" when tested. should solve your problem!

Ford escort convrtable

You might have a cold start solenoid, It is an extra injector that gives it lots of gas on cold start and then turns off when it is up to temp. If you do have one, then it may be clogged or faulty. It is usually located on the intake manifold seperate from the normal injectors. Follow the fuel line and see if it branches off to any other device other than the fuel rail .
