Mounted on top of the rear differential housing,facing up and slightly forward is a speed sensor that is common to go bad,this is the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).Replacing it is pretty easy,or it can be tested.There is also a PSOM mounted up under the dash (Programmable Speedometer Odometer Module),and these also are known to go bad.Ideally,a scan tool would be available to look at the VSS reading in the data stream.If the vehicle computer is SEEING a constant and steady vehicle speed signal FROM the VSS,then you know the VSS is functioning properly,and the problem will likely be with the PSOM.If the vehicle computer is NOT seeing a vehicle speed signal from the VSS,then you know it's a bad VSS or the wires to and from it.Good Luck.

On the top of the motor there is a sensor just behind the oil fill cap. This sensor controls the tach and the trans shift points and torque converter lockup. If it is not working it will burn up the torque converter and trans.

When you replace the transmission in this van you need to have the transmission computer reset (this is also called a relearn or a quick learn). You cannot do this by unhooking the battery. You will have to have it hooked up to a special scanner at a dealer or transmission shop to have it done and that should take care of your shifting problem.

It is going into "limp" also called "limp-in" mode. It is a default mode the computer places the transmission goes into when it detects certain errors. In this mode you should also have a Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel. This light tells you that the computer has logged an error code(s). Autozone will attach a code reader and pull the codes for you at no charge. Have this done and post the codes back here for further assistance.

I just wanted to know what the a/t button on the dash is and can i use it , and for when?


I'm not sure but i was told it is used for trailer towing,it keeps the transmission in the lower gears longer on the upshifts and downshifts sooner then in the "a" or auto mode.Your operators manual can confirm this.

Cheapest thing to try is a fluid flush and filter change. Unfortunately, if that does not work, then next bet is probably a rebuild.

Sounds like you need the updated engine computer for harsh shifting. Look up under the glove box at the computer. Number should be 89661-02K21 if not, you need the update. It is an 8/80 warranty item.
