I have a 1995 1.9 escort and have the same problem. If the car runs better when it is HOT you may want to roll-the-dice and replace the coolant temperature sensor for $15. TWO mechanics have mentioned this. It is easy to replace and might be the problem. You may also want to research the simple process of removing the big plastic air tube and clean the throttle plate area with a toothbrush and some gum out spray. The Idle Air control valve is above the throttle plate and is easly removed and cleaned........2 screws hold it in place.
