SOURCE: transmission filter
That car was available with 2 different transmissions.1 is the CD4E.That trans,the filter is only accessable if rebuilding the trans.You literally have to tear down the trans to get to the filter,so just drain and refill that one on a service.The other trans it could have is the GF4AEL,and that one has two pans.The filter is located in the bottom pan.Good luck.

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is faulty. The engine should not start with the trans. in gear. It seems as though the neutral switch is not disengaging when the engine is running and then put in gear.
In addition, this could be a module fault. I would disconnect the battery for a few hours to reset the module memories. Reconnect and start the car and see if it still occurs. If so, you need to see if you can bypass the neutral switch temporarily and see if it allows you to go into gear. Otherwise, you need to plug in a diagnostic tool and see what error codes, if any, are being displayed. It doesn't sound like a shift solenoid issue, it sounds as though the neutral switch is faulty.

Testimonial: "Finally had my very busy mechanic friend take a look last night and indeed that was the problem. Thanks so much!"
The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!
