Question about Cars & Trucks
Have to ask this is gas in the tank because thats kind of how it will do when its out of fuel..check all fluids even the transmission level on the stick.. fords should be red or light marroon color with no gunk in the fluid like small aluminum shavings or anything like that. some blackened clutch material may be seen but lookit over well check under the hood and under the front of the van foer any obvious issues like parts hanging down or fluids on the ground (anything of pertinent issue) you may have partially rolled the timing chain also need to hear whats left of it to know for sure...good luck..

Get ready for a overhaul. Ask the transmission companies and they will tell you that us Dodge owners are their best customers. Your torque converter is getting toasted. You have about 10k before it goes. Sorry for the news. Got mine done and now at 213, ooo so it was worth 1700 to get it fixed. got an extra 60 k and going strong.

lets start with a transmission flush and filter change. then have you checked any of your vacume lines. A bad vacume line is the number one thing that causes any form of transmission mis shifting. When it gets warmed up the lines alow cracks to open up and mess up the function of the vacume line. Also you need to have the torque converter checked. You also need to have a computer scan on the vehicle. a bad sensor or coputer could cause any of these problems.
let me know what happens when you check these out.

It sounds like the vehicle has stopped charging the battery.Charge your new battery first and see if it starts,or put a volt meter across the 2 teminals and read the voltage ,if it is below 10.6 volts the powertrain control module and the transmission control module will nt funtion due to low voltage.The alternator has an external regulator located in the powertrain control module,which regulates the voltage at 13.6 volts.If this is the case you need to test the alternator.You can take it off and take it to an auto parts store(they will test it at no charge),or you can get a scanner and full field the unit.Start there and let me know because the underhood fuse panel(pdc)could also cause problems.thank you Ramundoo
