Question about 1993 Dodge Caravan
3.3 engine. High miles. Driving down the freeway, at operating temp, van downshifts hard. Few seconds later it corrects itself and shifts up. Another mile or 2, I lose drive. Engine still running, but trans doesn't engage. I manage to drift to the side of the freeway and call the "highway super heros" who tow me home, and stick the van in my garage. A day or 2 later, I decide to push it down to the parking strip in front of my garage. I figure with the van running, I'll have an easier time steering with the power steering. Only problem is, van won't roll in neutral with the engine on. No problem with engine off, but then, I don't have power steering. Ideas?
Some also have a transmission computer on the firewall that interfer with driving down the road if they go bad it will cause vehicle to downshift and go slow and then go no where until it cools down then it will crank and go again.

You need to go to a transmission shop and have them diagnose this problem. It sounds like a bad TCM, Transmission Control Module, or a clogged transmission filter but they have the test equipment to make sure.
