Only way to tell what is wrong is to have the computer scanned to read what code is stored in the Engine Control Module (ECM).
Any of the large parts stores, eg. Advance Auto, Autozone, Pep Boys, etc. should be able to scan it for free.

Your escape is a 3.0L duratec motor. Is the motor itself overheating or just the pipes? The high idle is often related to a dirty Idle Air Control module or IAC, which is located on the top of the motor near the throttle body. If you clean this, or replace it, after a few days the high idle is often times solved.

Yes this could be the problem, because you are having backpressure, which is usually the cat, or worst case scenario, you may have a bent or stuck exhaust valve...But what you can do, is disonnect the cat., or the exhaust, and let it run...Now its going to be loud, but if you dont have that back pressure then you know its just the cat., but if you still have it, then you know it maybe a bent or stuck exhaust valve....

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your hasty response. I will disconnect the exhaust and run it. Let's hope this will prove to be a faulty cat conv. "
