1995 ford escort idle problem

I have a 1995 ford escort with only 130 000 km the car is in pretty good shape except for the idle of the car , when you first start it it runs high at a fast idle and than goes low again when driving it seems to want to stall out unless you keep the foot on the peddle and hints on this problem idles so low at traffic lights you have to give it gas

The IAC valve is usually the problem with the 1.9 Escorts ,causing a very poor engine idle at a stop. It is located on the side of the throttle body .

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.
