Had one like that years ago after a repair which was the silica bag in the dryer broke and was replaced.

They didn't get all the contamination out of the system and the expansion valve would get plugged with the increased RPM but at idle would work. It looked like a old carb filter made of sintered bronze.

Did you fix your AC? Was it the expansion valve afterall?

I have a 2001 Mazda tribute that is doing the exact same thing. AC blows ice cold when stuck at a red light but once I get on the freeway it starts blowing warm air.

Please let me know how you fixed your Escape, thanks.
