2000 grandcaravan will not go forward or reverse. engine runs fine until you
put it in gear then engine starts smoking out the exhaust and sputtering.
Sounds like you have multiple problems, a transmission issue and an engine issue. What color is the smoke? Blue/Grey or white? There is no easy fix in your future, sounds like you need a mechanic to diagnose your issues and then decide if you want to fix up/dump lots of money into the 15 year old minivan or not.
