Transmission problem
1990 Plymouth Voyager 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 156000 miles

My van will go in gear and after seconds it will be in like neutral and I can do nothing. I turn it off and start it back up I can go in drive and move about and 5 inches and it does it again. I believe it is the transmission and I know my way around a vehicle somewhat and I am wondering how hard is it to take out the transmission and put another one in?

Do you
have the same problem?
