I have the same problem its with the clutch its either the pressure plate , release bearing , or a clutch spring unfortunately and costs around 600$ to fix the neons have a "modular" clutch witch means that you buy a clutch/ flywheel combo unlike most cars that you buy seperately its pre assembled and a pain to replace for good measure go to a reputable transmission shop and have them check it (be shure they do a free check first) unless you have the tools and time to DIY

2004 dodge neon sxt manual transaxle. When shfting through gears 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 it seems like rpms are staying high and i cant feel a differance when i shift. Its hard to put in words.


I would look at the shift linkage to see if its binding or not moving properly. also the boot around the shifter can get pinched preventing the linkage from aligning properly.
there are 2 cables that run to the transaxle and they can stretch or wear out. Maybe have someone shift (engine off) and you can watch in the linkage move in the engine bay to see if anyting looks sloppy. if so you may need new cables but before that get a mechanic to verify that they are not moving right.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

Yes, it could be the transmission control module or a shift solenoid in the transmission is plugged up or burnt out so it doesn't shift up.

Having trouble shifting gears wont go into reverse actual shifter won;t physically move into the reverse position so Ican't even find out if I still have reverse


You need to get to the transmission linkages with some penetrating spray, right where they are attached to transmission at front drivers side. You may have to remove battery & tray to get better access, but 90% of time that's the problem area. You'll see where the shifter linkages attach & pivot on top. The top linkage is your power valve,(like a kickdown) which kicks it down on acceleration, then returns after. This needs to move freely, and it may take some work & spray to get it loosened up, but that should help with your problem, as it affects the shifter itself too. After you get them movong freely, put a good coat of white lithium grease or similar on them . On my 95 neon, i'd have to do it, about once a year or more. Initially it would shift out of lower gear to next at higher revs, and when stopping it would shift down hard. Good Luck

Transmission


You probably need to have linkages at transmission lubricated. There is one that controls throttle valve which tends to seize up on a regular basis. When it starts to seize, you will notice it staying in lower gear longer before it shifts up, and sometimes it will shift down hard when slowing down to stop.

You need to free up your throttle pressure control cable linkage that sits above your shift cable linkage at the top of your transaxle on drivers side. I had the same problem from time to time, caused it to stay in lower gear longer, and shift down hard when slowing down. Happened more when I drove it a little harder as pushing gas pedal further down causes it to rotate, but then sticks & doesn't come back right a way. Free it up with penetrating lube first, then put a good coat of spray grease like white lithium after its moving freely again, and it should be problem free for a while. You may have to move some things to get at it. If you need a picture email (motor@mountaincable.net), seeing how I can't seem to figure out how to send it from here.
