2nd gear was slipping and after about a mile after it warms up the car just sits and slips, after I sat there and shifted thru all gears including reverse, once none of them wanted to move the van I shut it down and restarted it 30 seconds later and regained full power for another 2 mins
Do you
have the same problem?

That doesn't sound good. Id take it to a trans shop, but it really sounds like the transmission needs to be rebuilt. This is common with these transmissions

Also not sure if this helps but wen I had both brake and throttle pressed at the same time after about 10 secs the van was jumping in place hard to explain but more violent than a engine miss like no spark or no fuel to the cylinder

I don't mind. It was 1800 for a complete rebuild. And if your trans was working as it should then it should be pushing smoothly against the brakes, not jumping. Make sure your fluid is at the proper level and clear and pink

Did you get the vehicle to operating temp and check the fluid level? Also make sure that the right fluid was put in as well

If you had all the gears but second then nothing im still leaning toward rebuild. For the money, a good transmission pro inspection is the answer
