It sounds like the ground wire was left off at the bell housing when the tranny was replaced.

Replace the fuel injector system. When you shut it off, the fuel continues to dump in the cylinders. This is the reason you have to open the throttle and rev the engine up. Getting rid of excess fuel.

Yes the mass air flow sensor is tied to the trans module and is used in the calculation of the shifting points. I would change the MAF. I have ran into GM cars with MAF sensors stalling engines. Those years were notorious for it

My 1996 Dodge Caravan starts well but shuts down when shifted to drive or reverse. I have to try several times till it moves. Once it moves it no longer shuts down. Why?


If it feels like the transmission or engine locks up, it could be something in the trans or the torque converter.
It could be something electrical but it should do it every time you shift it if it is.

Car chugs and jerks like crazy while cruising


Determine whether the jerking is engine or transmission related. One way to determine if it is the transmission lock up converter is acting erratically is to down shift out of OD. And see if jerking persist. If it goes away suspect transmission to have problems with torque converter or TCC solenoid . If it doesn't go away determine whether or not the engine sounds to be misfiring. If so vehicle may require a tune up. Many vehicles can be diagnosed for free at your local Auto Zone.

Electrical system goes crazy!!


Dirty Power and Ground connections. Working from the Battery, disconnect and clean all joints, along the Harness to the Main power box, and do the same in there.
It is a Ball acher, but it will fix the problem.
