Check your transmission fluid level running in 'park'~ engine hot~ between the two hash marks....check the smell and color...should not be black or smell burnt...the level should be correct....take it to a transmission shop for service~

no chrysler transmissions use vac. mod. They use throttle pressure cables or linkages. newer diesels use a servo to change throttle pressure. Pcm controls it. the newest are just computer controlled.
