Question about 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door
This is often caused by hard engine mounts and a dirty idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Clean the intake following these instructions, that should improve the idle issue.
Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes.

turn the knob of the gear stick against clockwise until it is loose, pull the lid with the leather (holded by clamps) and loose 4 number 10 nuts below to undo the whole thing.

To access the passive restraint cable, cable guide and motor, remove the upper plastic cover across the door by pulling it straight out, then remove the rear lower interior panel in the same fashion, the seatbelt system is now exposed, it is held to the car by 10 mm bolts and some phillips head screws, and a large torx bolt at the bottom behind the motor in lower section. Most of these systems fail due to the cable breaking, it is difficult to replace, the entire system can be replaced with another one from a salvaged vehicle, or new from the dealer, however the new from dealer is about $500 dollars. Hope this helps.

There are several things to check.
1) Check transmission fluid level.
2) Make sure that transmission is not in limp mode. That will restrict use of transmission to low gears. Go to the nearest car dealer and do a code scanning.If there are codes stored troubleshoot the codes.
3) Check if brake lights are working. Check brakes switch. The transmission shift lock may be on.
4) Check the TPS. The throttle position sensor is located on the throttle body The sensor detects the opening of the throttle, its output is used by the transmission control module to determine when to shift gears. The TPS is basically a variable resistor mounted on the throttle body. The TPS is tested by reading volts while operating the pedal. Making sure that voltage is in range and that there are no gaps or spikes in voltage changing while the pedal gets pressed slowly and smoothly.
5) Test the transmission switch solenoids. The higher gears solenoids may be defective. The solenoids are part of a pack located on the valve body in the transmission. The solenoids are tested reading Ohms at their terminal.
6) If you do not find anything else check wiring to transmission control module located under the dash. Make sure you did a code scanning.
7) Look for mechanical problems (clutch, valve, gears) inside the transmission.
