Question about Ford Escort
Cooling issue is most likely a low freon issue. When the low side gets low pressure it will shut off. Also if the drier is full of moisture from a small leak (from low pressure) then it will basically be an ice block.
The low idle in the car may be off if it bucks in 2nd and 3rd because unlike first you are not on the gas. These gears require the most power because of the climbing in speed issue. You didnt state you rpms for idle but I am guessing they are in the 600 and lower range.
Might check the plugs for proper gap, make sure coil is new as just because he did a tune up there had to be a reason for him to unload the car.
