When push on the accelerator, car seem not to surge

Car starts ok however when you push on the accelerator, it does not seem to surge. there were also hints of hiccups from time to time. i had the timing belt and accompanying belts recently changed. It somewhat felt nothing was engaging.

    the car rolls. seems slow to engage but shudders when the brake pedals are pressed. i also just changed the transmission fluid in the hope that it will help but no good.

It can only be a few things for this. My neon had some power loss one time. I replaced all the wires, plugs, and bought a msd ignition coil pack.. try just checking your plugs and wires

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

check the throttle position sensor. dodge is notorious for that. it may look ok, but the fault is really small but enough to cause a prob. it may or may not show a fault. a obd2 scantool may help you. most parts stores haave them.
