My 98 ford escort check coolant light is on a nd it sounds like the motor is still running when i turn it off

An engine that stays running "dieseling" after you turn off the key would be running hot. Check the coolant level in the overflow bottle when the car is cold and top it up. You will likely have to do this more than once to get the level back to where it should be, so check it for a few days and top up as until it stays full. Hope this helps.

Runs for a few seconds and then quite

It could be a fuel pump issue, do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the ignition to run position? Just turn the key to on (turn the radio off and buckle the seat belt so you can hear better) you should be able to hear the fuel pump. It will be a hum from the rear of the car, the pump should run for 3-5 seconds then shut off.

Engine won't shut off '91 Escort GT

Check the fuse box is not full of water.
Thet suffered from leaking windscreens, and it filled the fuse box.
If not, you are looking at a faulty ignition switch.
