Hey how are you

1-What is the mileage on it now ,and orignal transmission ?

2- Have you check fluid level , have you tried draining it and run fluid thru funnel with a screen at end of it and check for metal shaving ?

3- did you scan and retrieve tcm model fault code , will need a capable scanner to be able to read these fault codes and based on those we can pull up a pin point test and be accurate , is it the fluid, clutches , valve body , solenoid,trans pump ,line pressure tcm module etc ..

4- Did this happened suddenly or gradually slipping until we are here at 3rd gear and no reverse, 3rd gear , it is in a limp mode where the trans is faulting and reporting to pcm and shuttling the van down to prevent further damage

lets start here and we go from there

Please let me know

Thank You
