The diagnostic codes you cited simply mean the transmission is slipping (wrong input RPM for a given output RPM) in each gear that flagged an error. I'm afraid you have fallen into the same trap that most people fall into, when it comes to transmission fluid in Chrysler A604 (41TE) four speed electronically controlled automatic transmissions! If you put #2 diesel fuel into your gas tank and the engine refused to run, would you take the position that you will not put the correct fuel in the tank until the engine runs fine again? The problem, very likely, IS the wrong transmission fluid, and probably the wrong FILTER as well! But, depending on how long you have been trying to drive the vehicle using the wrong transmission fluid, that incorrect fluid could have severely damaged your transmission, ESPECIALLY if you used Dextron fluid! It is known to actually REMOVE the lining from the clutch plates! If you had Dextron in your Chrysler van, the transmission could already be toast. Did you consult your owner's manual for the right kind of fluid? ATF-3, ATF-4 and Chrysler 7176 are the ONLY approved fluids fro that tranmission! And putting Dextron in your tranny is as bad as putting #2 diesel fuel in your gas tank! It just plain WON'T WORK!
