Is this a normally aspirated diesel, or a turbo?
If its a normally aspirated, as most of the saloon/sedan models were, then there is nothing to be done. The engine outputs a whole 55kw and you suddenly start using 10 of them for air con...
If its the TD 70 or 90 then you may have a problem. The compressor does make a notable load on the engine, but should still be reasonably responsive. You could look into repacing the compressor, but that will be very costly. The aircon was a bolt-on for that engine, and is probably best to just accept if its cooling ok, then do nothing, or stop using it.

Is a 2000 ford escort manual compatable with a 2001 ford escort zx2


All ZX2 transmissions will work no matter what year. If you are trying to use a sedan transmission, it is possible with some modification. The sedan transmission has one threaded hole for the starter that will need to be drilled out. There are, I think, three bolt holes for the bell housing that won't line up but that isn't a problem. Otherwise, it fits just fine. The gearing is taller in the sedan and you'll notice the car won't accelerate as fast but your gas mileage should get better.

How many mpg does a ford escort 1.8td diesel get


The best way to find out how many miles to the gallon a vehicle does, is aquire two 1 gallon containers fill them up with deisel and then run your car out of fuel, add 1 gallon and reset your trip meter, this way you will know then, Just make sure you have a self bleeding system on your car before you try this, as some deisels have too be bled.
