The problem is that you have a 2002 Dodge Intrepid. That was the worst car I ever owned, nothing but problems from day 1.

Dodge ram 2002 after 5000 rpm it wont shift

I suggest to check trans fluid level and quality (color and odor), other choice could be a valve solenoids problem (if automatic trans). In order to check will need take off trans oil pan.

2002 es intrepid wont go into park and is hard to get into reverse, is this a cable problem, otherwise car runs great

Did you have any work done to your transmission recently? If you did and it was done buy a transmission shop shame on them. This is an internal problem that occurs when the trans valve body is removed on your trans which I believe to be a A606/42LE. There is a shift plate at the bottom of the shift lever, this plate can get bent if the steering wheel shifter is not placed into the lowest gear before removing the valve body. This is an easy fix , but everything has to come out again. You would have to see it to understand. So if this was done ,this is your answer, if not then it maybe your shift cable. It may need replacing our lubrication. GOOD LUCK.

2002 Intrepid 2.7 motor just shuts off when stoping check engan light came on and code was a map sensor changed it still stoped running hade the light reset and it just came right back on this time...

check for vaccum leak at map sensor or anywhere else no vaccum to map will show up as bad because the computer watches the voltage on it and the vaccum changes that voltage , no vaccum meens no voltage change and computer throws the light on to let you know there's a problem somewhere.

Where is the tcm for 2002 dodge intrepid people say behind the driver side headlight but the dealer told me that was the pcm not for the trans. so what is the truth i know that the tcm i bought is smaller...

I too have a 2002 dodge Intrepid, after 10 minutes of driving the car, when i make a stop it won't shift properly, in order to make it shift, i have to turn the ignition off and back up again!
If anyone can help me locate the TCM that would be great.
I'm ready to drive it off a cliff
Thanks in advance!

1996 dodge intrepid shifting problems

It probably takes off from a stop very sluggish too. It appears your trans is in fault mode "Limp In". The trans controller sees a problem and can't compensate so it stays in second gear. You need to take this to a transmission specialist that can scan the faults and troubleshoot the issue. If you don't know a trustworthy one then I suggest going to the nearest "Five Star Chrysler Dealer". They will have the technical knowledge and training to effectively deal with it. There is a possibility that the software is more of an issue than internal transmission failure. And do yourself a favor, have the transmission serviced after they solve the issue.
Good luck with that and let me know how it goes.

Transmission 2002 dodge intrepid

Ya, trans is done. Internal failure is common on these as well as the caravan - same internal parts, same internal problems. A salvage yard can tell you what years will work with their interchange manuals

1996 dodge intrepid 3.3 transmission wont shiftout of first gear

two issues here. this may be a low fluid issue. i would check the level of the fluid first. the next issue could be a blown shift solenoid. these are located inside of the transmission pan.also, check the filter as well.(transmission filter could be clogged)
