Most of the PCM problems are from the Coil Pack getting wet causing the coil pack to crack in a few places,that lets your power sparks escape out the walls of the pack....it will cause Transmission to go ..I have been there already...Going get another coil pack now...to check this problem yourself..remove coil pack ..if it,s dark brown it,s bad...but if you can see inside the works inside it,s good...Good Luck ...I like the Van also...
