Take it to auto zone and have the codes read free. This will tell you what quit probably the speed sensor which is on the trans. I have this same problem from my 1995 Stratus, I've been told it's the speed sensor, there are 2 sensors, (input and output) they run about $20 at an autoshop.. trying to find where there located with out the manual is another thing! ;) Anyone? I would say it is the output speed sensor located on the transmission. If your standing in front of the car looking at the car it would be on your right hand side. There is 2 on that side and its the top one. I changed mine by reaching up from underneath the car. Try installing a new gas filler tube gas cap. My "check engine" light illuminated, the transmission started shifting erratically, and my cruise control would not work. I installed the new gas cap and it fixed the problem. It seems that they all work in conjunction with the vacuum system--which the old "O-ring" on the original gas cap had gone bad and theere was a leak in the vacuum system.

Yes it can cause erratic shifting. But not an engine miss fire. You need to find out why the engine is missing and running bad and when you fix that problem then I'm sure the transmission will start working and shifting correctly.
