Question about Dodge Intrepid
I have a 2003 Dodge Intrepid and I have had problems with it since the day I bought it. When you drive for a while going 40 mph or over if you have to slow down the car will jump and the RPM will keep going up bascially not shifting gears, if you come to a stop the RPM will just drop and the car will cut off. We think it may be a transmission problem but PLEASE tell me I don't have to replace the transmission. HELP!

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 (email@example.com), seeing how I can't seem to figure out how to send it from here.

The input and output vehicle speed sensors (VSS) are under the aircleaner. You have to take out the air cleaner to get to them. I purchased mine on eBay for $25 for both of the. Any backyard mechanic can change them. I hope this helps you.

Dodge has a safety feature on there trannys. Its called limp home mode. If the computer detects a problem with the transmission, it will eather put it in 1st or 2nd and not change just to let you get out of the road or home if your near. But when you restart the car i will reset till it detects the problem again. But for as what the problem is it will be hard to say. With computer trannys you can have it hooked up and scanned for error code.
