Angry transmission control module

HELP! I am stuck in first gear again! I have had a TCM replaced by Chrysler Dealer and then replaced TCM myself 3 times. It always crashes after a few drives, maybe 50 miles at most. What do I have to do to make this module work? Don't tell me to go back to the has been too long due to my hard headed trials to repair it myself. I replaced timing belt and water pump on this 2000 and it was very tough but worked really great...then son ran up an elevated driveway and broke the radiator bottom, lost all fluid and overheated. I have now replaced that engine with a great 2001 engine, that was not as tough as the water pump and timing belt job. Problem is now I cannot get TCM to communicate with the transmission. I cannot afford Chrysler Dealer anymore! Please advise. Gator Joe

I'm not sure that the 2000 TCM is compatible with a 2001 engine or the tranny. Or have you replaced it with a 2001? There may be a difference communicating with the tranny. A dealer or Certified mechanic may be you best bet to ask those questions.
