Code claims multiple misfires changed the plugs and it continues to sputter and backfire especially when going uphill. Fuel filter? coil pack? plug wires?

check your high tension leads or plug wires. If you find one out of the correct resistance range, about 7ohms per foot, dont discount that the missfiring has damaged the coil pack for that cylinder as the wasted spark had no where to got except hammering the coil pack. As for the fuel filter refresh them often as the standards of fuel from the pump can vary

Car starts but won't stay running.

sounds like it may be your coil pack.if you can pull of the plug wire and lay it next to the coil pack plug,and dont get a spark,it is the coil pack...

Do you remember the last time the fuel filter was change? If you don't, do that first, it could be pluged. If that don't work or is not an issue, have a fuel pressure test done to see if fuel pump is weak, and ready to go out, or already has.

97 ford escort will crank but will not start

you need to determine if its fuel or ignition problem

take a screwdriver pull off one of your spark plug wires at the plug and place the screwdriver in the boot hold it about 10 mm from the engine block and be sure to hold the handle back at the end have a friend spin it over if there is no spark you may have a bad crank sensor or coil pack

does the engine sound normal when cranked? if it sounds weak or spins faster than normal you may have a broken timing belt

there is a access valve on the fuel rail so you can check the fuel pressure if you have an appreate gauge

do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the key to the run position ? It will only run for a couple of seconds

if you dont hear the pump run try resetting the inertia switch Check your owners manual for the location

Hope this helps David
