Lumina troubleshooting

My APV locked in overdrive and would stall the engine at stops. This van was my daughters and they had junked it because of the cost of repair. I would test the tranny lock up by coasting up to a stop and if I sensed the tranny was locked I would floor the accelerator a couple of times with a quick back off each time. After a dozen or so of these procedures whatever was sticking thje lockup came free and the problem was mixed.

I would suspect low fluid pressure, possibly due to a accumulator sticking. This can easy be tested by measuring the line pressure at the transaxle's external test port and performing a road test under the conditions mentioned.
Most transmission shops will test this for a reasonable fee.
Good luck.

94 Lumina Van with 3.8 liter motor. While accelerating from stop the van will drive good until hitting roughly 30 then it wont shift and you have to back off the throttle until it shifts and once it does...

Seems you may have a varnished up transmission valve body, try the conservative approach first, have the trans serviced and flushed with transmission conditioner additive installed along with new fluid...
