1990 Honda accord

My daughter has a 1990 Honda Accord with about 190,000 miles on it. It has an auotomatic transmission. It has 1st and 2nd gear but won't shift into 3rd or 4th. The fluid level is good. Is the transmission gone or could it be something else?

At 190,000 miles the first suspicion would be the tranny has probably reached it's life expectancy. BUT, it could be something as simple as a solenoid or sensor. I would have it checked by a good transmission shop and seee what they say [try to get a referral from friends or your regular mechanic; there ARE shops out there that will automatically try to sell you on having it overhauled whether it needs it or not].
