If it is an automatic tranny, i had a similar problem in a 1989 CRX with an auto tranny. Your problem could be your torque converter, You may have knocked it a 1/2in or so when you connected and bolted the motor down to the tranny, in doing so you like i said, budged the torque converter out of its appropiate place. So it may or may not be grabbing like it should.....
If this is the problem, remove the motor from the tranny, (and you might as well replace your seal while at it if you havent), adjust the converter back into place, until it grabs ahold of the tranny, you will feel it, shove it back there. Take note of how it moves and what makes it come out of place, with that in mind, REPUT the tranny back in, bolt it down. Prey thats the problem

First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.
Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

it has a problem with the second gear drum it cracks and does not fully engauge the n shifts to 3rd ..many honda owners also learn the 8 bucks a quart is the only fluid to pour in a honda..but remember 3 qaurts per drain and fill the tranny holds 7q ....it will take a case to do a drain flush...a high pressure flush will ruin a automatic tranny with alot of miles or metal deposits floating around inside..DRAIN AND FILL 3 QUARTS AT A TIME NO GASKET NEEDED ITS BUILT AND DESIGNED LIKE A MANUAL TRANNY

I have the same problem with my 99 accord. For the past few years, I have been able to change out the fuse in the fuse box on the passenger side under the hood of the car up near the windshield. There is a map of the fuses on the top of the box. Hope this helps!
