Is the van stock? without anyone jacking it up, putting in another length driveshaft, etc.? Something that could cause motor to rear wheel separation (no longer a link up).

Automatic I presume?

Rear wheel drive?

You did check the fluid AFTER this unfortunate fact also, right?

Short of the first line, it seems to me that the issue is tranny fluid related either in loss or blockage to the part that sends it through the...whatayacallit thing. (I forget what they call it, that part that looks like a maze with all the passages in it.) Or that which actually drives it through the passageways.

Can't wait to hear from others that might have a better handle on trannies.
