Question about Ford Escort
Front wheel drive escorts have an adjustment on the gear linkage this can become out of alignment due to age & wear & tear.
There is a lot of linkage between the stick & gear box so occaisional adjustment is necessary it is a simple DIY task though a ramp is always helpful. The alignment problem is always more noticable when selecting first gear the adjustment is a bit trial and error but adjust either way until first becomes selectable. Also this is a fairly cheap fix if you choose to get a local mechanic to undertake the adjustment
hope this helps
