I have an 96 ford escort 1.9 engine with 86k miles. When I stop at red lights the car acts like it's going to stall out but doesn't until I go to accelerate I cleaned out the carb and put fuel treatment in to clean out the fuel injector and there has not been any difference. Can you please help me I am on a very tight budget and can't afford to take it to a mechanic.

Do you have a repair manual-if so find the EGR open it up and clean off the carbon-pay attention on the passges it has to be cleared.

Also check the throttle position sensor-

The only way to catch this is to hook-up a scantool and view the live data if all the above has failed.
