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.

2008 ford escape transmission fluid change

If you do not have an oil dip stick for the transmission the you will not be able to do this service. the drain plug (if there is one) will be in the bottom to one side . But if you do not have one then the pan comes off and the filter changed and then the correct volume of oil is sucked into the transmission by the pump. IT requires fully qualified people to carry out this service

Oil Change proceedure. Where is the oil pan drain

The drain plug will be at the lowest part of the oil pan. I would recommend you take it to a shop, if you cant seem to find it. If its not right, you can damage the engine, and thats a pretty big price for trying to save a few bucks.

How do i change the engine oil of my 2002 ford escape? what tools and procedures do i need to follow? thanks

you need to have oil drain pan and a oil filter and oil filter wrench from any discount auto store. Is best to invest in one as Im assumed you going to change your own oil in the future. its fairly task at all. you will need to get the truck up in the air a bit so you can get under and get to the oil drain bolt. another items is good to investment is a car ramp cost about 30 to 40 bucks you can drive that car right up it and have plenty of room under. Don't get mix up with transmission plug and oil plug. Once you get underneath of it you would be able to tell and see one big bolt located on the bottom of the pan. Get a set of wrench I prefer a rachet so you don't round the oil pan bolt. Counter clock wise to remove the bolt. Look at your owner manuel book to see what proper grade of oil to use and the amount and make sure do not over fill it; overfill it can blow a gasket and seals, keep checking the dip stick. Most places offer 19.95 to 29.95 oil change and its not even worth doing it yourself even though they don't use the best quality of oil. Oil filter run around $8.00 and 6 quarts of oil $2.50 each come to $ 23.00 bucks saving $6 bucks for labor is not worth it. for me I would pay anyone $6 bucks to change my oil any day. I hope that help some ..good luck!

Can't locate reserve oil drain plug on 1994 Ford E350

It only has 1 oil pan which is call a dual resreve. One oil plug is a the bottom of the pan the other is at the front of the oil pan. Look at the front of the oil pan for the other drain plug. Make sure on how many quarts of oil it takes. ( I know 5.0 take 5 quarts including oil filter. But then again its a van double check)
