Bob was there ever a tuneup done on your 2001 Ford Escort ZX2,try changing the plugs wires coilpack then if that dont help you then try to use some good fule cleaner in your tank and do this more than once and use Shell gasoline 89 grade and if that don help you then you might have bad fule injectors that need replace'd if you have a PullAParts in your area then you can replace them for half the price that the Auto Parts Stores want for this part for your car if that dont help then you might have a cam that is lobeing inside your engine which means a engine rebuild or replace it with one that has low miles on it hope this helps you out dude
