This sounds like it can be one of two problems first how are the shifts from first to second? If it shifts late then you can have a plugged catalytic converter. Here is a guide to confirm the issue:

If that checks out it could be a input shaft speed sensor that is not reading correctly. Here is a video of a sensor getting replaced on another car and the location of the sensor for your car is in the diagrams below:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.
