You didn't state the mileage on the vehicle so a definitive answer isn't really possible.
There are clutches in an automatic that can be worn, or the 'slush box,' the torque converter, can be bad. Checking fluid level in an automatic normally has very specific conditions that may be noted in your owner's manual and may include driving the car to warm the fluid and doing certain things while checking it so if you don't wish to let a pro do it, check with your local library to see if they have a Haynes or Chilton service manual you can check out to get the correct guidance on fluid checking.

Takes a while to in reverse and hesitates to go in gear. Once in gear it won't shift to 3rd or keeps slipping from one to the other


I assume this is an automatic.
This vehicle could be low on transmission fluid, or it might need the filter and fluid changed.

Transmission not shiftin



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

check fluid levels add if low..retry the car and see also if the fluid is brown and dirty when you check it..change the fluid and filter in the trans mission and it should work ok also look at any vacuum lines that run down to the transmission see if they are good..

Roar on acceleration from stop,once it makes the first shift,seems to be fine. Possibly low on fluid? Is this transmission serviceable?


Yes the transmission is serviceable. Let the engine warm up and then check your fluid level. If the fluid is dark, smells burnt, or feels gritty you should change the fluid and filter. Sounds like a clogged filter making first gear slip. Watch your tach and see if it revs high on take off this will show if you are slipping in first gear.

Transmission slipping


You have a problem with the bands in the transmission. They will need to be adjusted to correct the problem. Also have the transmission filter changed with new transmission fluid. Check the fluid level in transmission first,if low add fluid and test drive. If its the same as before you will need to go to a transmission place to have the bands adjusted to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

Transmission slippage in first gear 2004 monte carlo


Is the fluid low? To check it start the car and drive it for about 5 mins. park on a level surface. With the car running check the fluid level. Only fill it with the fluid recommended by the maufacturer. When is the last time you had the fluid and filter changed? With any tranny slip problems I always try a fluid and filter change first.
