I have a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 3.8 When taking off from stop it vibrates/shimmies and then before second gear shift it stops the shimmy and when in second and I nail the throttle it will do the same thing. I have changed the transmission fluid and filter still no cure. Any help would be appreciated.

Could be clutches in the transmission. Could be worn CV joints/ball joints/other suspension components. Could even be a harmonic vibration being set up by engine speed or tires/wheels out of balance.
