it sounds like the trans filter needs changed. the fluid will be thicker when its cold and will not pass through the clogged filter as easy. As you drive it the fluid heats up and becomes thinner then is able to pass through easier.

The sweet smell is your engine coolant,check for a leak under the hood,look for green fluid,Have your catalyst checked,for the other problems,and your fuel presure checked,or change the fuel filter.Either of these should help a little.

Shifting from reverse to Drive


If your van has alot of miles, then just ignore it. Get a sevice done on it and let it warm up a bit and see if that helps the problem. When the miles get put on, especially with little maintaince, they have a hard time engaging "cold turkey". Another factor is that going from Rev to Drive(1st) you are going from energizing one accumulator to energizing two, and you're switching from the Rev clutch to the Underdrive clutch which tends to bleed off pressure the most.
