Question about Ford Escort
Pop the hood, and you'll find a cable running left to right (near your throttle body). It also has a spring that snugs this cable so it will have no play.
A common problem with the F-4EAT in the ford escort is that over time for some reason there becomes slack in this line or the spring wears out. If you are having trouble getting into first this is usually the problem. simply adjust the length of the cable and replace the spring.
If that doesn't work... I heard something about cleaning out the accumulator (some sort of spring mechanism) as it often causes this transmission to be sluggish (or change gears very late).
