Default automatic trans not shifting

1996 Volvo 850 automatic. The transmission does not have 1st or 2nd. Putting the tranny in 1st is no different than 3rd. If I start out in D it is very doggy and never shifts into another gear. Best is starting in 3rd and when I get up to 50mph shift to D works the best of now (which I know is not right.) I just acquired this car it runs great and seems to been well cared for with 140000 miles on it. Looks like it could use a fluid change its kinda dark but not real bad.
