This is not uncommon, chrysler spec say that it may take up to 5 seconds to engage when cold. Make sure your flid is topped up to the proper level and I recommend a trans tune every 50,000 kms. Also, your dealer can do a quick learn, which resets all the factory values(recommended after every trans related repair).

What would cause my 1999 town & country not to move in any gear


Make sure that your axles aren't broken. If you have a broken axle the power would transfer to the wheel with the least amount of resistance (to the broken axle) therefore not propelling the vehicle. Also look at your fluid level and condition. It is possible that the transmission is slipping in which case you'd need a transmission/rebuild.

I have a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country with OBD Codes: P0700; P0732; P0733; P0736; P0841; P0846 and P0992. Is this van worth fixing?


You might want an estimate from a shop after showing them the code list. Odd, but all codes that start with P0***, are generic codes applicable to all vehicles, but after a too-short search, I couldn't find the P 0800's, or the P0992. It could still be something electrical, not mechanical, in the transmission, but still cost more to fix than feasible if the shop has to do a lot of testing-my way of saying the Town and Country is better left on the side of the road than down it, lol.

Shifting from reverse to Drive


If your van has alot of miles, then just ignore it. Get a sevice done on it and let it warm up a bit and see if that helps the problem. When the miles get put on, especially with little maintaince, they have a hard time engaging "cold turkey". Another factor is that going from Rev to Drive(1st) you are going from energizing one accumulator to energizing two, and you're switching from the Rev clutch to the Underdrive clutch which tends to bleed off pressure the most.

Shifts into gear roughly


the pin in the differential inside the trans probably came out. you need a new transmission since this usually causes major case damage.
