Most times, Ford has a defective ignition switch. What happens is the metal tabs straighten out making the internal parts loose contact. I'd check there first. (Not the key side/the back side- with wires)

I need to know where the fuel filter is on a ;ford escort.


Try on the firewall, behind engine on drivers side.. If you have a fuel injected model, you need to release the pressure before removing. Also this sounds more like a fuel pump problem than a filter problem.
