Question about 2000 Dodge Neon
There may not be any spot to drain transmission fluid at the radiator. (All radiators have the transmission cooler built into the lower half of it.) You may have to let fluid out anywhere along the line that you can find to disassemble. Maybe look at the transmission itself to see if there is a drain plug on the transmission pan (like an oil pan)

Are you saying you put in a new but used tranny and it still dosent go out of first gear? Or are you saying you replaced a tranny line? If its the tranny you replace and first is the only gear you may not have adjusted the shifting linkage correctly. Put the truck in park and loosen the linkage on the tranny and slidr the rod on the tranny back and retigten and try that

It sounds like you have a couple of issues here, so lets start with the transmission one first. What it sounds like is that you have a busted hose, and the good news is that it is not expensive to repair. You will need to get under the vehicle and find the hose or hoses that are leaking and cut a piece of each hose off so that you can take it to the parts store and get the correct hose to replace it or them. I would recommend getting new hose clamps as well to re-attach the hoses. It also seems that you have some type of radiator leak if your vehicle is running hotter than usual. The leak could be a slow one and that could be the reason that it went un-noticed. The reason that the heater is not working even though the cars engine is hot is that the water that is used to cool the engine is scalding hot and that hot water flows through your heater core and that is how heat can be selected and blow hot air out of the vents. If there is not enough water, then there will not be any heat. This is some thing that you will also want to address immediately as if the engine runs hot due to a lack of water/antifreeze then you will run a high risk of damaging or blowing the motor and that would not be good. My advice is that you locate the cooling system leak and fix it ASAP to avoid some costly damage. A lot of cooling system leaks are, the water pump, radiator cap or bad hoses, so make sure that you check them thoroughly. I hope that you have found this information helpful as that is my goal.

SOURCE: Which line pumps fluid to
Two ways to tell....the one that is the hottest is the feed line, cooler is return. Or, disconnect the lines and disable ignition...crank the engine over a few times...the line that spits out fluid is the feed. (sloppy but accurate). Best way to connect an external cooler is in the return line. That way the radiator lowers the temp and the cooler finishes the job.
