    I have exactly almost the same problem! P.O.S. no sign or warning, Tranny went! The whole transmission. No drive, reverse or anything at all. Start the car up put it in gear, sounds like it wants to engage but no movement what-so-ever.

    Here's the story. My wife and I were driving home from her grandparent's house. (she was driving) Just start to get out of town. running at 35 Mph. My wife slowly starts to accelerate up to 60 Mph. All of a sudden out of nowhere the car overev's up to like 7-8 Rpm's. No noise from the tranny like something happened, snapped or broke, flew apart etc. She coasts to the side of the
    road and we both notice the neutral light flashing. She tries to put the car in gear and nothing. We are still confused about what it might be. "AT Solenoid" (Transmission Shift Solenoid), The Tranny "Control Module", or the "Speed Sensor"? Praying to GOD that we dont have to replace the whole Transmission. If we do we are not going back to automatic. Manual is what she wants. Our 98 Dodge Ram 1500 had Tranny problems too. If you have any clue, please let us know.

You need to have the car checked for codes, this will shed some idea what the problem is without guessing

1995 dodge stratus stalls at stops and wont idle sometimes.check engine light not coming on

It might be the throttle positioning sensor or and idle control setting. I suspect the former as the problem. Get a repair manual to locate the sensor and replace it.

I have a 1997 dodge stratus that when comming to a stop it cuts off, the check engine light does not come on

I would check the iacv or idle air control valve if so equipped. This controls the amount of air that enters the throttle body. If it fails to increase the air going to the throttle body, then less gas will injected, and the car will stall.

The only thing that bothers me is that the check engine light doesn't light, which it will usually do if there is a detectable problem with the iacv.

Also, the drivetrain could have a problem where it stalls the engine out. Have you tried to shift it to neutral before it cuts off? If it doesn't cut off in neutral, but does cut off while in Drive, then the transmission may be at fault. I would look at the torque converter locking up in this case.

Good luck on this repair.
