Engine Choking

I own a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country. Van has about 34k miles. The problem is that while in park, the engine starts to choke when you rev it up to about 2,500 to 3,000 RPM. Does anybody know why this may be?

    Only while it is in park?

    Yes, this only happens while the car is in park. While driving, there are no problems.

    It could be a vacuum issue. I suspected spark at first (such as aging plug wires), but it would happen regardless of gear. Heck, if you get it up past 2500 RPMs while driving and there are no problems, I wouldn't worry too much about it. There are few times when you would really need to rev the engine to 2500 while in park anyway....

    You are right, it doesn't hurt the car while driving so its no big deal. I changed the spark plugs and wires, but it was doing that before anyways (it needed new plugs by looking at them). I just hate when you spend good money on cars and stupid stuff like this happens, its really frustrating. But thank you for your help, I greatly appreciate it.
