The idea you shouldn't change fluid in old cars is wrong if the trans has been serviced on a regular basis. Some believe that if the fluid is really dirty, clean fluid will remove the dirt and cause the clutches to slip.
If the trans won't start out in 1st, there is the chance it is going bad. Have you tried to service it? Have you tried any additives for high mileage vehicles?
