Your 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix SE with automatic transmission won't shift into first gear and all other gears seem fine?
TURN OFF 2ND GEAR START!!! That's the only thing i can think of that could make ONLY 1st gear not work and other work fine. theres a little switch under the steering wheel toward the drivers door, just turn that off so 2nd gear start isn't lit up on the dashboard. have fun.
Had the problem, replace tranny filter and add some lucas tranny additive. seem to take care of the problem. If you have too, manualy sift to first to start off, this will reduce the heat in the tranny and help to prevent further damage.
The first automatic transmission available to the general public was Oldsmobile's Hydra-Matic system. The automatic transmission was based on technology developed by German engineers. Oldsmobile first developed the Hydra-Matic system in 1938, and first made available to the general public on all models in 1940, as an available option for $57.
Answer There is no transmission dipstick. GM does not consider this transmission fluid to be a serviceable component since it is designed to last up to 150k Miles I believe. However, there is a check plug that will allow you to properly check and fill the trasmission fluid. Difficult to access, but possible.

Check to make sure that your automatic transmission fluid is filled to the appropriate level. This may not be the problem but it is the first thing you should check. If the fluid coupling in your van (basically the clutch of an automatic) doesn't have fluid in it, no power will be transfered. For more info, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluid_coupling.

If it is an automatic transmission then you would have to remove the transmission fuid pan and it is the first thing you will see in there. I would also recommend that you drain the fuid first... but I would also recommend that you take it to a trained professional to do. You need to keep the inner workings of your transmission clean.
