Question about 2002 Dodge Neon
The output speed sensor on the tranny is ether not pluged in or is no good
Posted on Jul 14, 2009
Just fixed my daughters Dodge Van for less than 20.00 by replacing the output sensor on the transmission. She had a similar problem where it would shift to second gear and no further. This was after AAMCO and Cottmans said she needed a new transmission. The clue was the speedometer jumping around. Took less than 10 minutes. Check the connection as well

Here is some possible reasons why your transmission is having those problems .
* The gear shift linkage is binding
* There is an internal problem in the transmission
* The throttle cable is broken or disconnected
* The vacuum modulator on the transmission is faulty or the vacuum line is damaged
* The electronic transmission control circuit may be faulty

Replace the output speed sensor on the front of the tranny. It has two wires going to it. ANd looks like a round plug with a bolt like base on it. It is also white.

If it happened right after they changed the radiator, did they add transmission fluid? If they did, check your owners manual, or call a dealership, to find out EXACTLY what kind of fluid you need. It may be on a sticker under your hood also. It probably needs ATF+3 or ATF+4. I don't give a rats *** what anyone else says, use them, and them ONLY. If the shop put in something that is supposed to be compatible, then you need to drain the fluid, refill it, run it a little, in rev and first, like 10 feet each direction. Drain the fluid AGAIN, and refill. My Stratus and others (probably same tranny as yours) needs ATF+3 or +4, they are REALLY picky about this. Anything else will mess it up. I have not used MOPAR brand, I have used off brands, like from Wally World, and they are fine. They just need to be EXACTLY the right fluid. Change the filter if it hasn't been done lately too.
