Question about Cars & Trucks
Nothing else really, the van works fine; gets a bit slow uphill at times, and the clutch has to be pushed all the way
The clutch has an adjustment on the arm that engages the clutch on the side of the transmission. If it won't adjust then the clutch plate is too worn .

I would try a flush. If its set up like my 96, and it likely is, changing the trasmission gasket and filter will be difficult. Mine has a medal plug on the bottom and takes an allen wrench, and possibly a breaker bar. If you take out this plug, drain, flush then refill via the dipstick tube and a funnel, it may help. You may need to do this a couple of times due to fluid still in the torque converter, pan, etc.
Lucas is good stuff, I would add it again when I was done. The tranny fluid should be pink, mine looked like used oil black before I flushed it.
Also, when adding the new fluid, shift slowly up and down through all of the gears to lube well and check your fluid levels after 100 miles or so, as sometimes a bubble will form and make it look full....then not after it pops.

if your trans engages properly in fowards and not into reverarse then you have a worn clutch in the trans and the trans will need to be rebuilt

sounds like the clutch is going to need replacement and while there you should change the slave cylinder too

When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

im not telling you what to do because it could be a bad transmission and an easy fix but I cant tell without looking at it , but if its a hard fix just go to a reliable junkyard and get another
