Car starts fine after sitting awhile. If you drive awhile then stop and try to restart it won't.

Check the electronics,cam sensor or crank sensor these are the culprits.

Start from cold, the shifting gear from one to two seems to be delayed and when it happens, it comes with a kick. The problem is less noticeable after awhile.

try using less gas when pulling away for awhile to see if you get any improvement...(the gearbox is computer controlled and may be shifting to your style of driving)could be wrong though.....

My automatic escort will not shift out of first gear. I will drive in first gear, slip it into neutral, then back into drive, and will get second gear for about five seconds. Any ideas?

Try replacing Speed sensor.I have 95 Escort that while driving for about 20 miles would shift into low gear and not shift back into higher gears.After letting it sit for awhile it would drive fine for about 20 miles then do the same thing.Had the speed sensor replaced and works fine now.

Change the fluid and filter and add some Berryman's chem tool to it, most likely a shift solenoid is stuck from sitting.
