Question about Cars & Trucks

Transmission doesn't engage

I have a 2004 Neon Sxt and after properly warming the car (thermostat fully opened) if you put the car into "Drive" the transmission does not engage. It can take 20-25 of patient throttling of placing the car into various modes of neutral and reverse before the transmission responds and then when it does you must drive slowly for the first few miles. A few hours later you can start the car and it responds with no problem.

Try changing the fluid and filter. Use the approved Mopar fluid and not the cheap stuff.

SOURCE: I have a 1991 Buick Park Ave, my car will start

I would first check to see if you have the proper transmission level of fluid. From your discription, it seems that the fluid is low. If it is full, you have some more major issues. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: Car acts like its in neutral when I put it into drive or reverse.

assuming you have checked the trans oil and it is full, it sounds like you need to take it to a good trans shop and have it looked at. it could be something simple or something major and expensive

2004 Dodge Neon with overdrive auromatic transmission, gear posselector is in park but transmission still in gear?


ok first check cable to transmission to make sure it is properly adjusted, Does it lock into park ? (ie does the parking cog engage and hold the car from moving) If the park cog does engage the I suggest rebuilding the transmission as the band inside the transmission may be worn and welded to the drum.

My 2004 dodge neon SXT 2.0L Manual is cutting out at 4000RPM and sometimes at 2000rpms we replaced the Throttle Position Sencor because the code popped up and still isn't right.


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My 2003 dodge neon sxt with a manual transmission will not shift into Reverse


is it grinding when you try? try to turn car off hold in clutch put into reverse and then start car
if it pops right out you need to get it to a transmission shop.
i recently replaced a transmission in an SXT that had no reverse, all it would do it grind and pop back out

I have a dodge neon 2004 sxt the started sounds like it is turningbut the motor does not turn at all


Hello, sounds like the gear in your starter motor is not engaging/thrusting forward. It will still spin but it will sound like a effortless free spin, have your starter motor looked at. The other problem it could have but it is a very slim chance is that the flywheel which the starter motor engages onto is stripped, this use to happen in the older cars but its not a common problem now.
