#119214 Ford Escort Missing Internittently

If it were an older car without fuel injection then I would also say it's the coil. When the coil warms up it can start to breakdown, I had this on a Marina van I used to own a long time ago. With modern fuel systems there's lots of sensors that can fail so it's not so easy to say what the problem is but I would try the coil first.
I remember with my Marina that if you were very gentle with the throttle it wasn't so ban but if you tried to drive normally then it did an impression of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
