It does not shift into second or third, but the fluid looks good.
The oil stays clean between changes.
Do you

It sounds like you have a shift solenoid that is shorted out and not working.

Here is a guide to show you how to remove the pan so you can change the solenoid out:

It is the solenoid with the purple and orange wire.

You will need to lift the car up safely

Please let us know what happens.
