I used to have a 93 escort 1.9Fi. There was a vacuum leak that caused it
to want to stall when stopping. I seem to remember it was a hose at the
top end of the engine that had a small hole due chaffing against the
hood, I think it was the crankcase breather tube. It went out at 92K
miles, the replacement lasted until I sold it at 196K 7 years later.
I found the leak by running my hand over the various hoses until the
idle improved. Duct tape fixed it until I got to the dealer. New tube,
$27. Seem to remember the PCV valve was housed in one end of the tube.
Worth checking out.
