What can you do if your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 will not idle?

This could be a number of things, I would try tapping on the idle control valve, it may have gotten stuck. It is a silver cylider shaped part with a 2 wire conector located somewhere on the intake manifold. If that doesn't yield results, try replacing it. It is a fairly cheap part you can find at any auto parts stores.
