SOURCE: hi my suzuki gs500 is hard to get in 2nd gear in

This sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. Extremely dirty gearbox oil can also cause the problem, so I suggest you start there. The fork replacement is very costly. Have a dealer look at it if changing oil doesn't help. Get their opinion first hand and get a quote on repair costs.

Transmission automatic

is the OD lamp acting up> is the CEL lamp on, driving???????????

old car, most 96 have long since , given up the ghost.

stops in 1st gear?

some times. (common) the oil (ATF) gets hot (normal) and when hot

it is more thin, and when more thin, finds leaks inside better.

what can happen is pump pressure is marginal and hot fails.

and pressure inside drops and transmission fails to shift.

did you run the scanner to see if THE A/T has thrown DTC codes?

why not get the A/.T a full service, most are never done.

and will be full of junk inside due to zero service. (this full flush is good on cars every 50k, but if ignored for 300k , the flush makes it worse)

but do pull the codes first.

the FSM covers that.

It has full on car testing , read that too.

Does the A/T fail (hot) and stick in1st gear

(the stall test in the FSM pass?>)?

the stall test, is with all brakes hard set.

and you do a hot engine/trans , WOT, for 5 seconds max. (RTM)

RTM means read the manual, its documented 100% this.

WOT is wide open throttle (short time)

then you look at RPM (engine)

and see how high it goes, if too low, the engine is weak

if too high the transmission is slipping and will now burn up if driven

do not ignore slipping or doom happens faster.

the next test is the on car,. tranny test ports for pump pressure.

that too, is in the FSM for first checks)

The A/T is complex. read the book, or get help

2000 Celica GT-S. Engine 'bucking' anywhere from idle to wot

locate the mass air flow sensor. it's located inline with the air intake. it should be right after the air filter. disconnect the plug and see if the car runs better. also, when tapping on it lightly on the sensor with a screwdiver handle and the engine skips, could also indicate a bad sensor. these sensors will not always set the check engine light. suspecting the fuel system is also a possibility

When the weather is warm...

Hot weather equals thinner oil equals rattles

If the engine is a high miler try using a multigrade with a higher viscosity or dump a can of STP or Wynns into the engine to bulk out the oil when it is hot
