ok, i did some research and there was a recall for this vehicle about putting the wrong fluid causing the gears to fail, if you replaced the fluids with this recall you are fine and just take the plug out and drain. check for the required fluid specs. i can help you with that later on.
if you didn't replaced the fluid , then you most likely have a worn set of gears and will recommend to take it to them to fix their initial failure " mistake "

SOURCE: oil pan drain plug
The drain plug is on the back side of the aluminum oil pan, your going to have to use a 15 mm socket to remove the oil plug.
Good luck and here is a link to changing the oil for your escape if your have not done it before. http://fordescapefixit.com/oil.html

It does not have a drain plug. You have to loosen the bolts that hold the drain pan and let the fluid drain out that way.
