sounds like a sensor or or internal problem iwould take it yo a trans,shop and let a mechanic test drive.

This could be a solenoid, or it could be low pressure from the front pump. A solenoid or electrical problem would likely throw a code that could be read. More than likely your transmission is shot. I picked up a LOT of Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth minivans with bad transmissions like you're describing.

It sounds like you are in limp mode, 2nd gear only, and you need to take it to a shop for a scan.
