The first thing I would do is to replace the master cylinder as the compensating port may be blocked causing this problem. It is an indication of a worn clutch but having this problem at my expense I learnt to do the cheap fix first as clutch kits are worth about 5 times the price of a m/cyl.. Normally hydraulic clutches are not adjustable
It's the "shift" solenoid on your transmission has gone bad. Get it at the junk yard for around $80.00. You want the "shift" solenoid, not the "lock-up" one.You can see it on the front of your transaxle. It has a small electrical plug attached and comes off easily. Both solenoids may be together, or you may only have one. Easy fix, but depending on the doner car, your shift points may change (engine may seem racier)
It sounds like you front main crankshaft seal is worn out and leaking, the job is quite involved and if you are going to tackle it buy a haynes repair manual and a flywheel puller if you are not mechanically skilled I would not recomend this job. If you are going to tackle the job replace the water pump and timing belt while your in there the oil will degrade the belt and failure will result within a year.
Your engine coolant temp. sensor is going bad. What happens is that your engine computer is receiving a bad signal from the ECT sensor and it thinks it's 40 below. An example is it basically slams the choke shut if it had a distributor. When it cools off, I'll bet it runs just fine.
I believe that would be the VSS or vehicle speed sensor.. Its located on the rear axle.. I would get the part directly from a ford dealer as the one I got from an auto parts store did not work correctly.. It cost about 33 dollars from ford and It is an easy change for a do it yourself person.. Kip
