Transmission help

I have a 95 LX. My transmission won't shift into 3rd gear. It also will hardly go into reverse. Seems to have a slow leak comming from rubber bung plug in front of the pan. It doesn't seem all that secure. I checked the fluid while warm and shows full. Let the car get hot and now it's showing above full by about an inch on the dipstick. Makes me think that it's possibly clogged and not getting fluid to the torque converter or something like that. I'm going to pull the pan today and see if that tells a story. I don't know too much about transmissions and any advice would be helpful.

Pull the pan, and post a pic of the magnet before you clean it.

No 3rd or 4th is the direct clutch burnt; probably the teflon seals on the shaft went out.

Not sure, could be original fluid for the car. Has only 90k on her. I broke My 10mm socket trying to get the pan off. So little set back. I'll have it off soon. Also the plug for the torque converter if I wanted to drain that too. Is there any specific process to pulling that plug?

Pulled the pan, nothing bad. Fluid seems good. Not burned. Magnet not bad either

Well the tranny is toast. Time for a new one. Found one from a cougar that's a good deal.
