SOURCE: WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE

Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it

SOURCE: 2000 Durango w/5.2 ltr., automatic

this is a common problem with the dodge it is caused by the lip-seals inside the trans. getting hard from all the heating up and cooling down. the reason it goes away after it worms up is that the seals soften up with the heat it will get worse over time but there are some things you can do to help with the problem. first service the trany. ( change the filter and fluid ) and try adding some TRANS-X trany. treatment we have had great luck with this product in the past.

My ford escort quit moving in the middle of an intersection. Engine was still running, but car quit. I hgeard a "clunk" as I was turning. what could have happened?


Most likely one of the CV [constant velocity] universal joints on one of the drive shafts broke.
If it is an automatic transmission, something in the transmission may have broken; but automatic transmissions usually give other symptoms like slipping before actually breaking with a clunk.
If it is a manual transmission, it could be the clutch or the transmission that went clunk.

Firebird clutch periodically goes bang when engaging


If you have a cable operated clutch then check the engine mounts especially the rear mount or reaction rod on a transverse transmission.. If you had a clutch problem it would be there all the time and the indications are that it would be slipping , shuddering , grabbing and generally be a pain in traffic. I would be looking for a reason to allow the engine /transmission to get out of alignment and cause binding of the drive shafts . If front wheel drive check cv joints and suspension points . If rear wheel drive check for problems in the slip joint or "u" joints.

Why would it slip out of gear when driving around town


There are LOTS of things that can cause that. Of coarse, the things that can possibly cause that are directly related to what YEAR, MAKE, MODEL. ENGINE SIZE and TRANSMISSION TYPE we are talking about.

Cars transmission slips at 40mph


Low fluid level, worn out fluid with contaminants, possible too many miles. Recommend taking it to transmission shop.

Automat Gear does not shift in 40MPH


If all the gears including Reverse and Neutral show up in there proper place on the shift indicator your problem is either the linkage or the transmission. If your shift indicator is not lining up correctly you are probably putting the car in Second instead of Drive although Drive is showing. See if you can find neutral and go down 1 click regardless what it shows. Then try it. If that solves it, the little needle slipped and it is a simple adjustment to reset it.

Transmission Slippage


You can have the clutch and the pressure plate checked. If it is an automatic tranny you may try to drain the fluid and have it replaced or have the solenoid cleaned out or checked. The solenoid controls the hydraulic pressure to the clutch

Acceleration - cannot get above 40 miles per hr.


If the engine revs up while in drive and running at 40mph, your transmission is probably slipping. Try checking your transmission fluid level. If it is OK, I would get it by a garage to have them look at it to cofirm.
