If you're talking about the Park Neutral Safety Switch, it's on the linkage right up against the transmission, driver side under the hood. If you're not talking about the Neutal Safety Switch, then spell out exactly what you want and do not abbreviate.

When starting from stop sign, it felt as tho the truck was in it doesn't have reverse?...goes forward.....high rpm's

Fist check the transmission fluid level by putting the truck in neutal with the parking break on, leave the engine running, open the hood pull the dipstick labeld trans out wipe it clean the put it in and pullit out to take a measurement if it is low fill it up and this should solve your problem if not, then you may have a broken syncros plate in the r=tranmission and you need to have it replaced.

Had new tranny put in my 1997 dodge caravan. now it won't start. put new starter put in, new starter relay, alternator checked out, battery good. now what?

The neutal safety switch is probably your culprit. It is on the transmission. Make sure all the electrical wireing connections are good.

Four wheel drive shifter will not move

Put the transmission into neutral, then allow the vehicle to roll backwards, this will unbind the transfer case, pull on the shifter while rolling. If that doesn't work, then your linkage under the vehicle has something putting it in a bind. look around and make sure it moves around with slack. Enjoy

2003 Dodge Neon SE the car acted like it was in neutal

As detrimental as coolant is in the engine oil, it has a much worse affect in the transmission fluid as its a thinner fluid and does not have the additive package that a motor oil does.

Here's how I would approach this:

To replace the cooler (its probably in the radiator) means they will likely have to replace the radiator and then the rebuild of the transmission is going to be up there as well. So all this is going to be considerably expensive.

You could go that route if you wish, but you could also take a chance and have an after market transmission cooler installed (by-pass the one in the radiator completely so you dont have the risk of coolant in your transmission again) and then have a thorough transmission flush done with a new filter installed.

Now, you are likely looking at a few hundred dollars minimum if you have the dealership do this but Im thinking that the reason the car acted like it was in neutral was due to the lack of transmission fluid because of the cooler line busting.

If you can do this work yourself you could probably do it all for less than $200 and if everything works out and the transmission is not damaged and works properly, you've saved yourself a good chunk of change. If it doesnt work and continues to have problems, then you can decide if the repair bill will be worth it to rebuild the transmission.

The key think here will be doing a very thorough transmission flush to get any traces of coolant out of the system and a new filter. Hope this helps.
