Question 95 escort wont shift

Hi. The other day I replaced the thermostat in a 95 ford escort automatic.. Once the job was done took it for a test drive and now the car will not shift from 1st to 2nd until it hits 5000 rpms. The car shifted fine before replacing the thermostat. I would think one would not have to do with the other so I figured I would ask for some ideas. Any help appreciated.

Thanks

How is it for the other gears and does it give you problems walking it through by hand?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

You probably have a 4EAT Mazda transmission. They don't have a kickdown cable.
