problems with 96 dodge caravan

When I drive up hill the van shakes like crazy and only when I drive up hill also the van feels like the steering jerks side to side while driving I have to hold the wheel tight to keep from being all over the me I'm a single mother of 3 and spent most of my savings on this vehicle

Welcome to the forums!

Are you able to jack the vehicle up and check the tires/rims for play? you'd also look at all the suspension parts while you are at it.

is you check engine light flashing when it shakes on hills? if so you have a miss fire. and on the steering i would bet you have a broken belt in a tire. start by looking for a buldge in the front tires, 9 times ot of ten its on the side the car pulls to.
