Unless someone put trans fluid in your engine oil
the only place that it even has a chance is in the radiator
you will see the trans lines running in and out of the rad.

2005 dodge neon, transmission oil smells fishy and coolant level is going down and engine is over heating and fishy smell is coming through the vents. What could be possible problems? I'm posting photo of...

Do u get smoke from vents? sounds like AC evaporator problem. Trans oil is a separate issue. May just need servicing. Have the cooling system pressure checked. Good luck

not sure but you may have a leak in your oil cooler ,,,, this would allow trans oil into the coolant and cause your loss of oil and overheating,,,,

My Neon. I had trans. flushed and fliter/fluid changed. Now trans. wont go into gear, have to rev engine and back off while in drive to get low to engage. over a certain speed ****** slips out again....

That proves my point that flushing is not a good idea

The flushing is not your problem entirely
It caused an already slipping transaxle to slip,
to where you can no longer use it

Any trans shop would have test driven & asked questions
& not changed the fluid

You need a complete rebuild or reman


The fluid change cause the already burnt clutches to
not work at all due to the different oil

Only the old dirty oil had the ability to lock up
the clutches

I had the transmission fluid and gasket changed now it jerks when stopping why

Two possibilities here, First have the transmission fluid checked. You can do this yourself. with the car warmed up find the transmission dipstick, it's just like the oil dipstick, pull it out and wipe it off then reinsert it and pull it back out. at the bottom you will find the fluid level and a mark on the dipstick indicating where full is. If it is indeed full the your transmission bands are worn. The old fluid had enough "gunk" suspended in it to make it thicker and therefore you didn't get the "thunk" as it went into gear but now with new fluid you are hearing it.

I have a 2000 Dodge Neon, I was driving down the road and it made a grinding noise and died... It started spraying coolant everywhere. I've tried to restart it, but it won't start. It turns over, just...

more than likely the radiator went and has affected the transmission lines thus the car will not start.happend to me and all the trans fluid had leaked down the road the car stalled and then overheated would not move .only saw coolant not trans fluid since it drip out on the road prior to stalling.another option is the water pump or center freeze plug our had rusted through before and was a hassle to replace

I have a 2000 Plymouth Neon. I have oil in the

sounds like blown head gasket or possible cracked head. Only way to know for sure is either you pull the head, take to a machine shop have it serviced, they will replace any bad valves, resurface and pressure check it. If its cracked they will tell ya. The alternative is to pull the head, clean up really good and put a new gasket and reinstall the head. If it doesn't fix its cracked.

Would the engine over heating on my 2002 dodge neon cause my transmition to slip?

No, this is not related. You just happen to lucky enough to have two problems at the same time. If the engine got to a point where is was glowing hot, it could transfer the heat to the cooling lines causing air bubbles in the fluid and henceforth a slipping tranny. However, your engine would seize solid forever given those circumstances.

My 2000 dodge neon will go in park reverse but wont go into drive

If the fluid in the trans is up to the proper level the trans has failed, have a trouble code test run to determine what has gone wrong, it could be a solenoid in the trans pan or a failed forward clutch.
