Short of a leaking vacuum line, damaged shift cable or linkage, or a band adjustment, there are no cheap or easy fixes. Drop the transmission pan and look for chunks of metal from the bands or bits of fibrous clutch material. Sooty looking deposits are normal. If you see any chunks, get ready to replace the transmission. Considering that the van is 20 years old, If it is a high mileage vehicle and/or very rusty, you might want to consider just scrapping it, since a rebuilt transmission will run you about $1300, and you don't want to get into a position of having way more money invested in the vehicle than it is worth.

yes. you have to check the plastic/rubber moulding at the linkages under the hood. maybe one of them is missing (fallen out because of wear)
