NO, not in a 1999 Escort! Dont matter anyway. Tell you what you need to do, take it to a mechanic that can check it out for you hands-on!!

Manual or auto trans.? When sitting still does the idle race or is it normal? How many miles on it? Clutch slipping?

its a manal and i think it is the clutch because you casn put it in to gear and then take your foot of the clutch and the car will still run
