Question about 2003 Dodge Neon

Open Question

I have an 03 Dodge Neon SXT with AT transmission problems.

It has hard upshifting and slipping. It is especially bad when it is cold. Runs much smoother when the weather is hot. Sometimes I have to get it to 3000-4000RPM before it will shift. Most of the time it will get stuck and wont upshift at all, but will stop slipping, but if I turn the car off and on again, it will upshift again. No problems downshifting

SOURCE: 1998 Dodge RAM 1500 won't upshift, slips out of gear

have you dropped the pan to see whats the bands are set at, any debris in pan bottom, whats your governor pressure, if bands are ok, but gov pressures are not relative to speed 1 psi per mph up to 95-127psi, port is on pass side of case rear top right, scan tool would be very helpful, your must have mil light on for this problem, gov dtc's, replace gov transducer as gov solniod as a pair, no exceptions, also are there any 02 sensor dtc's, shorted to voltage, this wil make pcm do stupid things to trans shift, affecting gov signals. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge neon is jerking while trying to shift.

Cheapest thing to try is a fluid flush and filter change. Unfortunately, if that does not work, then next bet is probably a rebuild.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge stratus tranny problems

there is no up shift sensor or down shift sensor,
there is a output sensor,input sensor,speed sensor,
you need to have your TCM checked to see which of these are at fault.

SOURCE: The transmission is hanging up in 2nd gear and not

The absence of 3rd and 4th is imposed by the transmission computer as a precautionary measure. The system has detected fault and rather than risk doing any greater damage has provided a limp home service. It needs to have a transmission specialist look it over and read the error codes. How do your transmission fluid levels look?

My 2003 dodge neon sxt with a manual transmission will not shift into Reverse


is it grinding when you try? try to turn car off hold in clutch put into reverse and then start car
if it pops right out you need to get it to a transmission shop.
i recently replaced a transmission in an SXT that had no reverse, all it would do it grind and pop back out

Valve body in the bottom of the transmission has valves that ware out and the oil is thick when it is cold and when the oil gets hot it gets around the ***** out valves thus shifting back in to first could be the 2-1 downshift valve.

I own a 2005 Dodge neon SXT. Once in awhile a solid red circle pops up on my dashboard. What does this light mean?


The red circle means there is an intermittent problem with your vehicle security.If your car starts and runs fine it would be hard to diagnose until it wont start at all.

2003 dodge neon only runs in first gear slips at 1500 rpm , must shut car off an turn on for it to run , wont shift out of first.runs fine in reverse.is it a pcm problem.


No,Your car is in "limp"mode,
there are three sensors on the transmission that tell the computer how fast your going so it knows to upshift,
have someone check input sensor,output sensor,and speed sensor.

Tranny problems 03' Dodge Neon sxt 2.0


not sure on the set up of whether its rods or cables on this model for your gear linkages but sounds like one has either detached or broken which should be a relatively easy fix and not too expensive.Get a friend to move through gears while you look under to see whats moving and whats not.
