1988 244 transmission issues

I am repairing a 1988 240 for my friend tomorrow, and he says it revs up a bunch before it "slams" into 1st gear. It is an automatic. He also says it wont go into overdrive (like the od switch is bad). Is the overdrive switch a replace only item, or can it be repaired? I am pretty sure the slamming into 1st is a low fluid issue.
