grand am transmission

my daughters grand am will only start out in 2nd gear. once you get moving you can upshift to 3rd and drive. once you stop you have to start in 2nd gear again . it also seems to drag a little. any help?

Could be a stuck 1-2 shift valve in the control valve body.I would suggest at least checking codes and maybe let a tranny shop drive or diagnose it.The year and engine size would be nice also.
