My friend, good questions get good answers.

Reasons for your trouble include contaminated or burned fluid (which also includes dirt and water), low or high fluid level, (NEVER overfill an automatic transmission) worn clutches, out of adjustment sensors, clogged filter (clogged with transmission debris). Unless you have the capability to overcome these issues, you are better off taking your car to AAMCO or any other transmission shop is in your area.

It is true that you can drop the pan and replace the filter. This is about a $50.00 job if you do it. There is no certantity that this will solve your problem. Special tools are required, there will be transmission oil all over the place including you. Since you are likely to end up at the transmission shop anyway, save the $50.00 and let them do a complete repair for you. Expect to pay around $1,500.00 for a rebuild.

The only exception I might recommend, and it comes with a caveat, if your fluid is at the proper level but BURNED (smell it), you can and should change it. Normally, if you are at the place where it will not shift, the burned fluid has alredady done its dirty work and there is other damage inside which must be repaired.

Please have a professional in your area take a look at it.

Thank yo for your interest in

Check your transmission sensors with a network diagnostics. These are often to go bad, they also play a big role when it comes to shifting properly.

If it wont shift at all, its very likely computer related. Its unlikely it could be vacuum because of its age. Their is a computer for newer trans and sometimes some of the components can fail. I once bought an accord that lost 2nd and 3rd due to its computer, shifted great after i hit the junk yard. If it shifts hard though, solenoids and valve body gasket.
