I am pretty sure that your vehicle has a computer controlled trans which means that there is an output shaft speed sensor that has replaced the governor.The old mechanical governors would spin faster and faster and increase the up shift pressure until it forced an up shift ( I used to rebuild transmissions for years ) The output shaft speed sensor is a common failure and I have replaced many on the Mopar vehicles. Is your Van not up shifting properly? What is your concern with the trans operation?
