Welcome to the forum. If you put your van info (year, trim, gas/hybrid, etc.) in the signature line of the UserCP it will show up at the bottom of each post. Build date is on the edge of the driver's door if you are interested in knowing it.

There is a search feature of the forum where you will find many threads on transmission issues. If you add SciTchr to transmission search you might find some of my suggestions from the past plus info from others in those threads. How many miles do you have on your van? Is this a new issue?

My vehicle does the same... but intermittently. No one can ever reproduce the problem (I've had it in the shop 3 or 4 times for this issue... it's there again today). It's so scary to pull out into traffic, thinking you've left enough room to accelerate before the next vehicle overtakes you, and instead you're sitting there waiting for your vehicle to get it together to go... and then it jumps and jerks so hard that you think you've been hit from behind.
