The first thing that i would check would be the fluid level and conidtion. It probably would not hurt to change the fluid and the filter on it that way there is some fresh lubrication in there. The last thing that I would suggest would be to get it rebuilt. The friction materials could be worn or the transmission pump could be shot.

Ac don't blow cold only Luke warm and heater don't blow hot only warm what could it be help please

If this is a Ford vehicle it likely is a stripped gear in the blend door motor, which looks like a 4x4" box 1" thick held to the heater plastic box with three or four screws. This part can be ordered online for about $30 and is not difficult to replace on most vehicles.
The wires have a connector that is fairly easy to pinch and pull to release. The little motor box can be unsnapped and opened to view to see if the gear is not engaging or is missing a tooth before ordering the replacement. There will be grease on the gear so have a rag handy to wipe it to be able to inspect for damage. The identical cog gears are extremely difficult to find so don't waste your time trying to replace the little cog that strips out in these.

Problem changing gears when hot. ok when cold!

It will be best to get someone to check the hydraulics of the clutch. That is a common issue.
Get a workshop to drain the gearbox oil and flush the system. A tell tale may come from the drained oil if the tranny is near end of life.

2001 Volvo s60 D5 very difficult to shift gear

if you have a hydraulically assisted clutch, check the reservoir. it's located on the firewall in the vicinity of the brake vacuum booster. if it's low/empty, fill it. you may have air in the system which will require bleeding. what is the mileage? you may be due for a clutch. if you google, "hard shifting manual trans" you will gain more insight on the matter.

Slipping in 1st gear and around sharp left turns

If you have never had the spark plugs changed it is time to do so. Since you have drilled a hole in the cat you will need to replace it when your state inspection comes around becouse it wont pass. Some fuel injection cleaner will help with the sputtering. You should treat it with injection cleaner once a month since the plugs have been allowed to fowel and caused carbon build up in the cylinders.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T starting problem

This car won't start unless the gear is in the P position. Some times the sensor that tells the computer that the gear is in the P position doesn't make a good contact and the car won't start. Move the gear backwards and forwards until it makes a good contact and the car will start again.
