Question about 1998 Ford Escort
This problem sounds most likely as if your tensioner pulley or idler puller are going bad or you have a bad belt... best way to test this is getting some belt dressing from your local auto-parts store and spraying the upside and underside of the belts with it as it's running and if the problem persists then try getting a wrench to tighten down on the pulleys themselves... if adding the tension to the pulley works that means that the pulley has gone bad...
also when the car is NOT running grab the belt with your fingers and check in between the grooves... generally a rule of thumb for those belts is if you have small cracks all along the inside of the grooves that are small but look kind of deep... just go ahead and get them replaced...
if this isn't the problem then message me and I will try to further diagnose for you but this is the most common factors in what you are experiencing and also the cheapest to fix as well...
