You checked the injectors and fuel lines?

L reg so 94, yes the coil was taken off a running car :)

 

If it uses an external EDIS module (and respective wiring) it might be worth checking this out. The module can be found on the offside inner wing.

 

I posted a pin-out of the EDIS 4 module on here the other day so have a bit of a search if you need it.

hmm im guessing its to do with the wiring, because iv noticed alot of the wires have water on them or dripping off under the dash

 

A common water leak on an Escort is where the main wiring loom goes through the main bulkhead behind the inner wheel arch. Water can run down into the ECU. You've probably got corrosion in there and potentially damaged the ECU.
