The shifting sequence releases one clutch as it engages the other, so it may be one or the other out of timing, so there is a partial engagement or disengagement. Does the tranny oil, on the dipstick smell burned, or feel significantly different than fresh fluid? How many miles on the fluid? What model 95 Dodge? Has the tranny been rebuilt some time in the near past? (I ask that because, years ago I had a BMW tranny rebuilt by a very good shop ans noted on the work order that it had to be built and filled only with type F fluid. When I picked up and road tested the car, the tranny made an groaning noise on the up-shift. I took the dar back to the shop and asked what fluid it was filled with. They said Dexron II. I pointed out the work order and my telling them to only use type F, . They changed the fluid and refilled with type F, which was a waste because the clutch plates were contaminated with Dexron, so they decided to rebuild the trans mission,l They did, and filled it with type F and it was just as bad, so they claimed there was probably a problem in the valve body. I asked them what fluid they soaked the new plates in before assembly, It was Dexron, so they rebuilt it again using tyoe F for the pre soak of plates and bands, The tranny worked perfectly.
For a Chrysler product, I would only use Mopar brand fluid, even if the manual said there was an acceptable substitute. This is also true for the brake fluid and coolant, as the cost of a mistake can be huge. Remember, whoever changes the fluid is married to any problems that show up. I owned a six bay repair shop with a full machine shop for ten years before retiring. We did not do transmissions, it was legally safer to have them done by a reputable transmission shop or the dealer, bringing them the vehicle.

Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

you appear to be the victim df incompetent mechanics
front brakes not working after change is a result of the air not being bled out correctly and you should have taken the vehicle back immediately and complained loudly
try and find an accredited professional service center with experience on your make of vehicle and have a safety inspection done

Door locks work through the body control module. Have it tested.

P1747 refers to a transmission issue. The PCM has detected a malfunction within the EPC (Electronic Pressure Circuit) circuit. You may notice that the engine goes into limp mode or you start to notice a harsh shift point. If you need more information just let me know. Please be specific. The more you write, the better and faster I may help you solve this problem, good luck.

Lock up when? after driving some? when you first take off?

CV joints will usually "pop" when you are turning. Check to see if your lug nuts are tight, check tire tread for any "bubbles" or your tires may need to be balanced

Called dieseling the engine runs because of unburnt fuel in the chamber. Sometimes caused by injector bleed down

You dont. Touble codes are generated by reading the computer with and OBD or similar unit. many national auto partz stores carry the tool and will let you use them for free (i use kragen)

Multimeters read an electrical signals qualities (voltage, amps, etc)

The Crank Position sensor is mounted on the transmission Bell housing - back side - a few inches above the extension housing for the passenger side drive axle.
You can get to it from under the hood - easier to see if you take all the air cleaner/intake hose away from over the transmission.
Important note: one 10mm bolt holds it on a slide adjustment - very important that it is adjusted properly.
1. Proper way to adjust is to apply the provided stick-on disc to the end of the sensor (looks like a felt pad - about the thickness of a credit card)
2. Check in side the hole to make sure the sensor ring Does Not have a window directly in line (turn crank pulley slightly to correct)
3. Install the sensor - slide it in to touch the sensor ring - tighten the bolt.
4. plug the sensor back into the harness
The spacer/felt pad will space the sensor at proper distance and as soon as the engine starts it will probably get rubbed off the end of the sensor.
IF YOU DON"T HAVE THE SPACER PAD:
You will have to install the sensor to touch the ring and move it back slightly (about the thickness of a credit card)
When you start the engine - if you hear it hitting - the sensor ring may be slightly bent and you will need to adjust it out.
If you have it to far in it will hit - too far out will not start.
The sensor ring can easily be bent/damaged by transmission work - 95 FWD Dodge MiniVan has probably had the transmission removed for repairs at some point. That sensor information is shared by both the Engine Computer and the Transmission Computer.
Good Luck with that :)
