SOURCE: the engine rpms rev when shifting

Your trans is slipping, u are going to need to have it checked out at a trans shop, they will test drive it in most cases for free and report what they think is wrong or recommend more diagnostic work if they are unsure..

SOURCE: 2001 Isuzu Trooper 4wd automatic trans. It will shift ou of 1st at about 20 mph into 2nd then loses power, rpm's drop until it slows to about 10mph then down shifts back to 1st. Any ideas why?

Sounds to me that your transmission is put itself into what is call (Limp Mode). This happens when the transmission fluid in the trans hydraulic valve body located on the bottom and in the trans pan are not within the parameters of the transmission computer. You can remove the trans pan and gasket to check for metallic material in the bottom of the pan. There is normally a strong magnet in the pan catch the material so I can't move freely through the transmission itself. It only takes a very small piece of foreign material to stop the flow of the valve body fluid. I would first take it to somewhere that had a automotive diagnostic scan tool that can read transmission codes to see if there are any active codes. Next you can drop the transmission pan yourself and look for material in it. Basically do a visually inspection and service the transmission fluid, gasket, and filter. Remember, all a automatic transmission is a extremely complicated fluid pump. If its pumping trans fluid properly it's probably working just fine. Been when the trans fluid gets hot, scorched, and stops moving. It will not work. Hope this helps

I just changed a fuel pump in an 05 dodge neon and the car still acts like it loseing fuel pressur what would be wrong?

Does the engine run if you spray starting fluid (from any auto parts store or hardware store) into the air intake of the engine? If so the injectors are not delivering fuel (we call this injector "pulse") or you have other engine problems like a jumped camshaft timing belt? Does the camshaft drive pulley turn when the engine is cranked over? If not the camshaft drive belt has gone away. Also check all the fuses with a 12 volt test (available from any parts store for about $5) light 15 amps and up to 30 amps, Are any of them not lighting the 12 test light on both sides of the fuse with the ignition key on? Do you have power to one side of which injector with the key on? Be meticulous and check everything until you find the cause of the no start. Also the camshaft drive belt lasts about 90,000 miles to about 100,000 miles, then it can go at any time with the resulting no start.

2001 dodge neon is losing power on uphills and the engine light flashes when it loses power. Any thoughts?

Try changing the fuel filter. This action usually halts the problem. Good luck!

Engine light on diagnosed PO44O dodge said probably the purge control solonoid. where is this located on a 2004 dodge neon?

Try checking the gas cap first off. 95% of the time, an EVAP code, (purge solenoids, or any EVAP code) could be caused by a lose gas cap, or a defective gas cap.

And I know on SOME neons, the evap canister purge solenoid is located on a bracket attached to the air cleaner. Hope this helped.

Driving home, 2003 Dodge neon starts to slow down, oil light has come on intermittedenly before, engine started to lose power, brakes locked up, and steering wheel locked up. Car had to be towed. Thanks.

lets hope its not a bad motor from lack of oil pressure, the loss of brakes and steering is due to the engine stopped running this is normal, but hte oil light coming on with the engine running is not good, you will need to see if the engine spins and trys to start, this will tell you a little bit, if it spins then it didnt lock up, and maybe its a fuelpump or timing belt that let go, you will have to do some testing ,check for fuel pressure and spark at the plugs,

Check fuel pressure. Sounds like a bad pump or plugged fuel filter.

Where is the oil pump on a 2004 Dodge Neon?

Oil light that comes on while in idle means the oil pump screen is clogged or damaged, cause low oil pressure to the engine. That part is only $30. It could be a bad oil pump though, if that is the case the pump can run you $100. Either way you need to get it fixed ASAP it can cause major damage to the engine in a very short period of time!

Check engine codes

best thing to do is go to a checker or autozone type store have them check the codes or do a code clear.
