    Try cleaning the throttle body or have it cleaned.
    Is the check engine light on? If so have the van scanned to check for
    trouble codes.

    As mentioned get it scanned at a shop see if you get any codes related to the torque converter lock-up solenoid (or TCCs). Possible lock-up clutch not dis-engaging properly at decel.
