V6 or I4 engine? xe = i4?
bad tranny.?
low or too high ATF levels.
clogged bottom filter before pump, (shifts hot?)
RE4 trans is 4speed electronic
RL4 xxx trans is manual only
this side of your tranny has a tag is it RL/RE4 or or 3speed.

3 speed or 4 speed the FSM show four A/T used then .
there are 5 tranny total then ,4 AT (1 m/t)
on car diagnosis varies greatly by type.
fluid checks (if electronic the Tcm blink codes (DTCS)
pressure checks. for weak pump.
that stall rpm tests.

Car idles, starts just fine but when I shift into gear it stalls.


It sounds like the kick down cable or "down shift cable" This is the cable on the transmission that shifts back down when the car slows. The transmission is most likely stuck in a higher gear and simply stalls the engine when shifted. replace this and i believe you will be back on the road. Hope this helps. Good luck.

When starts, speedometer jumps all over and stalls when give gas


Sorry!... Not a congruent description of problem. Apparently you damages something (wire harness perhaps) which was already weak/deteriorated. Solution, do a visual inspection of the engine wiring harness in the area of the tranmission. Hopefully you'll get lucky.

Transmission wont shift


check the kickdown/throttle valve cable. It may be bound up and stuck in the maximum position giving you extremely late shifts.

There ISN"T any modulators or vac lines on any Chrysler automatics
