That is completely dependent on where the leak is-if it is an exhaust head, it would be a lot of labor to replace the gasket or possibly the head-if it is the pipe before the catalytic converter, it also might be rather expensive, but from there it is probably under $150, be it the muffler or tailpipe-you need to say where the leak is located for a helpful answer.

2002 ford escape red hot exhaust spudders and rpms drops to almost stall

Carol Ann,
Your catalytic converter is plugged up [restricted] This is causing the exhaust to get red hot and causing the reduction in power. You need to replace this part [$$$} The catalytic converter failed because you have been driving the car for months with the fuel mixture excessively rich.
You need to find and fix the cause of the rich mixture or your replacement catalytic converter will also fail in a few more months.

Josh, your catalytic converter is shot (plugged). This caused a back-up of exhaust into the egr system. Probably melted the flexible tubing to the sensor, and may have damaged the sensor and/or the egr valve itself. The hissing you heard was the exhaust venting from the egr system. The converter being plugged caused you to lose power until the exhaust found a way out of the engine via the egr system...
