Engine Start and Stall and/or Transmission Stuck in Second Gear on Chrysler LeBaron

Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. If the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.

Car abruptly shifts into second gear when slowing down. Will not shift normally until ign is shut off & car restarted then shifts fine for an arbitrary (ten minutes to three days) time until it does it again.

My car just started slipping like this. I'm trying to fix it now. Guess I'll start with the TCM.
WHEN I APPLY THE BREAKS AND CAR SHIFTS DOWN TO FIRST GEAR IT JOLTS AS IF COMING TO A SUDDEN STOP. THE SAME THING HAPPENS WHEN I DRIVE VERY SLOW.

Shifts through all gears sometimes, after a stop and go it will become stuck in usually 2nd or 3rd gear.
