Check the level and color of the transmission fluid. Sounds like a fluid pressure issue. If the fluid is red thats good but if the fluid is low and/or dark brown and smells burnt. That isn't good. You can try having the system flushed but don't get your hopes up because of the year of the minivan you might need a transmission.

Does it have any shifting problems? Hard shift or slipping? If not you may just need the 3rd clutch pressure switch. It will need to come from Honda I don't know pricing but I would think less then $100 and shouldn't take long to replace.

SOURCE: '02 ACCORD 1-2 Shift Shudder,
The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the transmission can
fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushisng the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh
shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same
issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the
transmission will have to be replaced.
In both cases (CR-V and the Civic) there is a linear solinoid that can cause the problem or if not then a broken spring inside the transmission that can create the same issue. The cheapest thing to do is to replace the linear solinoid and flush the transmission. If there is no change then the transmission will need to be replaced. The spring is deep inside the transmission and would require complete disassembly for replacement, and it's ususally more cost effective to replace the transmission as a unit.
Honda has issued a bulletin on this issue. As far as I can recall it's been about 50/50 between the spring and the solinoid to repair the problem. Some customers choose to live with the issue due to the cost involved.
