No, your '92 has first gear start. Hard shifts when cold could simply be the warm up feature that holds the car in 1st for an longer time and then finally shifts to second at a higher than usual rpm. This is designed to warm up the catalytic converter faster.

Sounds like maybe the vacuum line(s) weren't hooked up correctly or the cable to the transmission (Bowden cable) is incorrectly adjusted. If the vacuum line to the transmission modulator is disconnected you will get hard shifts.
