2002 Dodge Intrepid ES shift selector is stiff, difficult to move into position. Is this a linkage rebuild issue?

You have a shift cable. This cable may be getting a
little worn. One way to check it is, disconnect the
cable at the transmission and see if it is still stiff.
Look under the hood, just to the right of the brake
booster. You will see 2 cables that come through
the firewall, one is the throttle cable, it will go to the
right towards the center of the engine. The other is
the shift cable, it will go down to the transmission
linkage. Disconnect the cable there and see if it
shifts any easier. If not, replace the cable.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Does fine shifting when cold after heats up slips

those trany are none for problems. first is to check your fluid level if its good then to the trany shop it goes, you can try having the trany fluid flush if it hasnt been done every 30,000 miles.if not then you may need a rebuild.

Chrysler vehicles often need to be driven between 300 - 500 miles for the control module on the transmission to "learn" your driving habits. Avoid punching the gas or driving very slow, and you should be just fine.

When going from park to reverse or drive it is hard or going back to park. I have to use a lot of force to get it into the right gear. Also one time it wouldnt go into park. I had it checked out and there...

Hi. this is a common issue with this dodge transmission design. there is an issue concerning the factory shift solenoids that are in the trans pan. First, make sure your tranny fluid is at a proper level, Once you have inspected the tranny fluid and filled to specs, i would next move on to a basic transmission flush and filter change as well.

Once the flush has been initiated, you should notice a deference in the shifting. If the shifting is still hard and not normal after the flush and filter change, this will confirm a more serious issue within the transmission itself. At this point, i recommend dropping the trans and taking a look at the transmission control module. test the module for its operational value and test all shift solenoids as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

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.

2002 dodge durango wont shift out of park

Not sure that this is the solution, but I found a work around on my Durango. If you take off the cover on the shifter there is a lever (button) that you can dislodge and the vehicle will release out of park. After I did this a couple of times, I haven't had the issue happen again.

My 2002 Dodge intrepid has it engine light on

The MAP sensor and Knock Sensor are both very easily replaced. A better scanner will tell you which sensor is going bad on your transmission. An Autozone code reader will not tell you which sensor on the trans. is acting up. Most sensors on your trans. are very easity replaced as well. They just screw in and plug it. It's worth paying to get a "real" scan done. The trans. sensors are inexpensive and you can replace any other your listed sensors yourself.

2002 Dodge Intrepid transmission not shifting

Flush out your transmission with the correct type fluid, Mopar ATF+4, and correct filter. Disconnect Negative cable, to reset computer, for at least 24 hours. Check grounding straps for PCM, ensure they are tight and clean.
This method worked on my 2003 Intrepid SE, 3.5L, Police Pkg car.
Good Luck!!
