    Just guessing, but it sounds like the transmission is going into "limp mode" to protect itself from total destruction. This is a common problem for those who have over 100k miles and never had the transmission fluid and filter replaced, or who had their transmission fluid changed a few months beforehand by someone who did not use Chrysler authorized ATF+4 transmission fluid.

    Wow, it took all my library time to get logged in here...Anyway...I bought a 2001Chrysler T&C Limited with 4X4 and I had the car jacked up to check on a small power steering hose leak...not a big deal...but when I was under there I noticed the small tail cone bolted to the trans where the drive-line exits...that cone is just hanging there as the housing is busted all the way on each flange. Can't believe it but it doesn't appear to be leaking at that point. Any idea how this got this way? Somebody launched the thing in and out of a ditch or what?
