1998 Ford Escort 4 Cyl - Engine Bucks

When driving about 25 - 35 miles an hour lifting your foot off the gas pedal causes the engine to kind of buck and surge… the solution seems to be let the engine finally get back to idle and the press the on the gas pedal and it’s ok…

is it standard?

Yes… 5 speed transmission with 4 cyl engine… Bob
