Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
Good chance that your TCC (Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid) has gone bad and will need to be replaced. Go to Auto Zone and have them scan the van for the DTC codes, I think the DTC code will be P0740. I looked this up and it's "Torque Converter Clutch lockup"
To check for Converter Clutch lock up, when you are going down the highway about 55 MPH, tap the brake pedal with your lefty foot just enough to make the brake lights come on but not enough to apply the brakes as you keep the gas peddle at the same position. You should get/feel about a 300 RPM rise in the engine. If you don't, then the clutch didn't lock up.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Check the fluid level. You may want to consider having the transmission flushed. (I recommend BG Products flush system.) Properly flushing the trans removes any varnish the may have built up causing erratic behavior.
