I have a 97 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 190,000 miles on it. Transmission slips. Tried changing filter and fluid. Still stuck in low gear. Any suggestions?

I have a 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE. AWD. 145,000mi. No rust.
Since I bought it in 2008, I had only replaced the transmission, tune-up, brakes, oil changes, etc. No major parts, only maintenance parts. I have had no major problems with the car. I like to floor it sometimes, and the car seems to drive very well. Suspension is in good condition, being in Chicago's rough winters, and potholes. I should mention though that the throttle body needs cleaning every so often. Chrysler sells a spray to clean the inside of the engine, when the car is running. After I did this the engine ran very smooth. I only use Mid-Grade or Premium in mine, and I am satisfied.
With these Chryslers, you have do follow the maintenance intervals, or you will pay for it later. Also the transmission problems would have never existed if customers would have follow the cars bible. Changing the trans fluid, is like had a blood transfusion. If you don't use ATF+4, your transmission will not survive for long. If you were to put a different type of blood in a human, that person will not live very long. In fact, the person will die in days. Same thing happens with the Chrysler transmissions.
As for the interior squeaks and rattles, any car will do that with aging. Sure Chrysler should have used stronger plastics. My advice is to FOLLOW MANUFACTURERS SERVICE INTERVALS!

A transmission seems like a pretty major part to me.
