98 dodge caravan

My parents have a 98 dodge carvan.. when it sits for a while and they start out it will shift fine until either second or third.. It hits bout 40 and won't shift.. Finally it decides to shift, then is fine until it sits again.. Any ideas?? best of my knowledge the fluid has never been changed..

not sure of the miles. I would say quite a few.. They have never done anything to the trans.. The fluid is full..

As noted need more detail. Anything from an adjustment/bad solenoid/computer problem to a wasted tranny.

About the only thing you can do is to flush the tranny fluid and change the filter and see what happens. I find alot of people wait too long to service the tranny fluid.
