Loud?

Do you mean that when you are sitting at idle the car bucks so much that your intestines get tied in knot or actual engine noise? An escort is a pretty cheap car. It is one of the louder cars I have driven.

Did the car jerk into gear? That's a sure sign of a high idle. You might want to look around the throttle body to see if there is something there that doesn't belong (like something added after the fact to adjust the idle, i.e. a piece of vacuum hose on peg on the bottom of the throttle body, a slotted TPS and so forth and so on). Failing anything physically holding it open that's just how the car runs and is going to run. It's not a luxury car. It's an underpowered four banger.
