Question fluctuation problems on my Escort

I had a newly acquired Ford Escort and tis fine until yesterday when it is starting the rev's fluctuate. Unless I put my foot on the accelerator increasing the rev's the car will cut out. The spark plugs have recently been changed. Any input on this one? I also need a brand new radiator support for this, tis a 2001 model.

yeah sounds like a vacuum leak, maybe someone left a hose off? or it just rotted away.
Despite the high cost of living, it remains very popular.
