Question about 1999 Ford Escort
Your fuel pump only runs for 2 seconds with the key on, unless it is running. Safety reasons. It runs during starting all the time, and all the time if engine is running.
check fuel pump relay in driver kick panel and inertia switch reset in trunk. Se owner manual for info.

is the pumps running have you checked fuel comes out of it? if it does you will have to move on further along fuel line check next connection (fuel filter maybe) check there is stuff coming through there. Next goto other side of filter check there. Just go along the fuel line checking for fuel pressure. if there is fuel going all the way to the rail check the pressure regulator it may be stuck open therefore the gas would be getting pumped to the rail and going straight back to the tank i.e. no pressure.

probably not fuel filter . probably going to have to remove the upper intake and replace the fuel injector spider(fuel inj assebly) if it is droping fuel pressure it is leaking into the upper manifold

SOURCE: low fuel rail pressure, warning
the fuel rail is on top of the engine. look for the injectors the rail is the metal fuel line that supplys fuel to all the injectors. you can also find a fitting on this rail that a pressure gauge can be screwed onto. it should have a black cap on it. kinda looks like a valve stem like for the tires. but you may have a faulty pressure regulator. a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. replace pump last. it will be more expensive.
