Any ideas on what to look for? I haven't driven it myself so just going on what I have been told. "Car is very slow to accelerate from a stoplight and then seems to eventually shift once or twice and then goes." This was the last year of the kickdown lever trans. I drove it before the swap and it grabbed 1, 2, and 3 no problem... never got it fast enough to try overdrive. We used Valvoline MaxLife.....
(https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/...omotive-car-1998-ford-escort?brand=true&pos=0) or Liqui Moly (More Information for LIQUI MOLY 20018) for trans fluid and a NAPA filter/gasket kit.

It probably needs the kickdown cable adjusted. you might be able to find instructions on here by searching.
