Default Transmission Problem

Hi
I am a proud owner of a Volvo 850 GLT 2.5 that have a problem of my auto transmission.
The problem is the gear will not change for gear 1st to gear 2nd during cold.
After the transmission warmed, it will have not problem with gear changing at any speed.
Please advise what could be the problem.

Thanks a lot for you help.

What year is it ??

Have you followed the Volvo procedure for checking fluid level ??

What color does the fluid look ??

Do you have a check engine light on, a flashing arrow ??

if there isnt a flashing light,may be you need to do a ATF change. make sure the flashing arrow dash light works. turn on the ignition, do not start the car, make sure you see an arrow light up on the dash. l think its between the check engine light and SRS. am not sure. but check for that and make sure nobody removed the flashing arrow dash bulb.

Are you sure you checked the fluid level properly? Was the car running and the tranny hot?

To check the bulb, look at this video which should start at 1 minute. The arrow in the corner is the light that should work for you.

Since you have a '94, your OBD-I port under the hood will have any transmission errors stored in it. I'll post a video on how to check the port later today for you.
