I'd clean the MAF, clean the ICV and check for any split vacuum pipes or the common pipe collapsing on the elbow.

the most common reason ive come across for hunting idle is its drawing air somewhere...
the elbow is part of the breathing system, from memory, been a while since worked on these escorts, might be 2 of them, both on right hand side of cylinder head, just follow the breather pipe from pcv valve thats fitted on front of engine as you look at it.
pcv valve itself is a common reason, plus had a few that pull in air around the rubber seal that the pcv sits in....
easiest test for checking if pulling in air is spraying wd40 [better still, carb cleaner if your careful as its flammable) while engine is running...when you spray across an air leak, you will hear a change in idle....always best to do this whilst engine is hunting.

ok..cheers. wase.....il try & get that fitted monday..its driving me nuts..but today it was ok..typical..il grab some more hooky wd40..as its cheaper at wickes..& get spraying..il report back ..on mon.. any ideas where i can get a cheap quote for a blowover on my escort cabby in zinc yellow..the paints sun faded..laquer is peeling off the bumpers & rear spoiler...preferably in essex herts ...the paint is o/e ..so should be ok..cheers jim..

another common area, whilst you got wd out, give the throlle body/butterfly a clean...safest way is wd on a tissue, open throttle wide and wipe round where butterfly sits when closed, keep doing it till tissue stays clean....dont use carb cleaner or similar as the throttle body has a coating that can be destroyed...

thanks again to all who posted..i went to ford & bought the 90 degree replacement breather pipe off the back of the manifold..as .ive replaced everything else...£14..all done now & the car is a lot better..no black smoke from the exhaust..& im back up to around 30 mpg round town..the old pipe was crushed as expected..& was chamfered/rubbed at one end..it was goosed....& ive ordered some aerosols of zinc yellow to do both my bumpers,spoiler & boot..when its up to doubble figures anyway..cheers..

quick tip, keep your old sensors, sometimes, when it comes to various sensors dotted round the engine, you get what you pay for..there are a lot of cheap, in price and quality, sensors on the market
