Question about 2002 Dodge Neon
My wife bought this 2002 Dodge Neon Sxt this morning. People said it wouldnt get over 20mph so i test drove for my self when the car was cold. I got up to 80mph quick, shifted through all the gears. I went back to the house and was gonna back up in the driveway and would not back up, it acted like it was in neutral so i put it in drive and still acted like it was in neutral and then finally after a couple seconds of revving it up, it went in drive. Also the milage was flickering on the dash but i think thats electrical. What could be the problem with the shifting?
I would start with checking the fluid level in the transmission.
With the vehicle on a level surface start it and let it run in park. Pull the transmission dipstick wipe it clean, reinsert and pull it out. If the fluid is not in the cross hatch area add 1/2 quart of ATF+4 and recheck the fluid level (it will take a couple of minutes for the fluid to settle out of the dipstick tube). Continue adding 1/2 quart at a time until the level is in the cross hatch area.
With your foot on the brake run the transmission through all the gears. place the transmission in park and recheck the level, adding as necessary.
Then drive it and see what happens.

the trans shift solenoid pack is bolted to the side of the trans closer to the radiator. it is rather large and there are three 10mm bolts holding it to the trans. it is under the input speed sensor and just under the spot where the cooler lines go into the trans.

SOURCE: code p0700 dodge neon sxt 2003
The first thing you need to be aware of is that fault codes do not tell you exactly what is wrong with the car and never indicate specific parts have failed. Fault codes only give an indication as to what circuit or system is behaving abnormally at the time.
The fault code P0700 from your engine control module means that there are fault code(s) stored in the transmission module as well. it is not an indication of a problem in itself; it is just a flag to alert the technician that he needs to scan the transmission controller for faults.
For the couple of model years i checked, there was no valid definition for a P0731 on the neon model. If you give me the exact year of the vehicle, i can check to see if there is a definition for this code for your car, but i can tell you that being a 700 series code it is going to be related to transmission operation.
To diagnose this type of fault code is going to require access to a professional level scan tool that is capable of accessing the trans control module for fault codes and stored data. O nce the codes from the transmission are read, then there will be a manufacturer's test procedure to follow to test operation of the specific circuits and components related to that code. This again is going to require a DRB-III scan tool or equivalent to display live transmission data as well as to run the test sequences involved in diagnosing whatever code is stored there.
So, for this reason my answer to your question would be that you should take this particular problem in to a shop with the required test equipment and a technician trained in Chrysler transmission diagnostics to be looked at before attempting any kind of repairs yourself. Some things can easily be diagnosed and repaired at home in the driveway with minimal equipment; this particular type of fault is not one of them.
