    I just found this site please keep in mind.yes it is a change in the cars behavior, about 7 months ago it started and also with a check engine light on, I went to autozone to see if they could figure out what was wrong,they put it on a tester and got a code which I do not remember,but I do remember that it was supposivly for the transmission nuetral switch which they gave me but it was the wrong part,sorry just a little history on the situation,no the engine does not suddenly accelerate when this happen, its like it bogs down, might be a better description.When I rev the engine in a high rpm in the park gear it does this but I think it is normal because of the governer chip,its done this ever since i had it, I haven't done it alot at all just a couple of times.but that skinda what it does now when I try to accelerate at a higher rpm while driving.I hope thats i little better.Thank You.

    Is this a change in the car's behavior, or has it always done it? Does the engine suddenly accelerate when this happens?

If the car is not getting into passing gear at all, check the kickdown cable from the throttle body to the transmission, to see if it's broken or binding. Also check the throttle body itself for smooth operation.

If those are okay, then check the throttle position sensor for proper output voltage. That should have thrown error code 24 if it failed.

As you pointed out, your engine has a rev limiter to prevent engine overspeed. As you approach redline rpm's, it will cut the fuel supply. If this is happening at lower rpm's than it should, then the limiter itself could be in trouble.

I hope this helps.

My 2000 dodge neon automatic stop pulling just going down road


It can either be low on fluid, the clutches burned up, pump or torque convertor failure, clogged up filter, or broken turbine input shaft. Pretty much needs to go to a reputable repair facility!

2004 Dodge Neon will not reverse.


Sounds like it could be worn gear linkages, which would stop you from being able to push the gearstick in to the reverse gate (usually by pushing the gear stick down or pulling a lever up under it). If you can get under the car take a look, there should be a set of joined poles leading out from where your gear lever is, check that all the connections on these are reasonably tight.

2000 Dodge/Chrysler neon Removing rear speakers


I don't know of any websites with pics or vids, but i can walk you through it. First, remove the trim panels between the rear door glass and rear windshield. They're just held in by little clips and should pull right off. Then grab the rear seat cushion at the front about midway to the middle on each side and yank it up sharply. Take the bolts out that hold the rear seat back in place, I think you have to lift it from the bottom to disengage clips at the top. Remove the rear seatbelt trim bezels. Slide the seatbelts through the slots and pull the shelf trim forward to remove it. The speakers are held in by 4 phillips head scews.

Transmission linkage


Did you take the linkage right off at the transmission ? If not, then don't !! The shaft can drop down & something internally happens, that requires removal of pan etc to put it back.
