Dizzy 96 SL1 Trans Issue, Goes forward in neutral and reverse? No First gear either?

Good Morning all,

I picked up a 96 SL1 for my son w/230,000. I have a 96 SC1 I got 5 years ago and now with 180,000! Love the Saturns and this forum!! I'm your typical garage machnic, have done alot of my own car repairs

The SL1 was going fine and then all of sudden, No reverse my son says. forward gears working fine. 1 month later, the other day, It started to really mess up. No First gear, starts out in second and shifts to third and back fine? For the heck of it I put it into neutral and rev the engine a bit and the car moved forward? In reverse, the car went forward? It used to shift smooth and without issue.

I've read alot of the posts in here and well I'm inclined to think valve body? I haven't read ANY or found any posts pertaining to this particular issue? I have checked the fluid level and I believe its a bit overfull? I know that itself is bad. I have a new filter and plan to drain the excess.

ANY and ALL comments welcome, My son NEEDS his car for school and work!

Kindest regards,
