Question about 2003 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2003 dodge neon transmission issues

I had my transmission rebuilt about a year ago, and it felt awesome at first, except when accelerating from a stop, there was a little click, like it took a second for something to engage. Shortly after, I took it through the Blue Ridge Mountains in NC, and ever since it hasn't shifted right, it kinda jerks back for a second when going from 2nd to 3rd. Can I retrain the transmission? It has 130,000 miles on it, could the engine mounts need replaced? Also, I recently changed the tranny fluid and filter, and there was definitely too much fluid in it. Before I did that, it would down shift REALLY HARD sometimes. Also, is it normal to have some larger metal shavings in the transmission filter after about a year of driving? Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Well no metal shavings should be in the filter if there is there is,something is not right internally in your transmission.When there is larger metal shavings in your tranny filter your tranny is probabley gonna have to be rebuilt or replaced.You can try changing the fluid and filter and see if that helps but nore than likely you will need to change out tranny with a new or rebuilt one.

My ford transmission is slipping. was rebuilt 5 years ago.


5 years is a long time and you don't mention how many kilometres you drove since the rebuild. These transmissions, like any other automatic, need the oil and filter changed on a regular basis to avoid untimely demise.

My dodge 2003 neon just had transmission replaced it still has a slight jerk a little hesitation on accelerating and the engine light is on what could that be?


Usually a scanner to read the engine fault code could lead to the correct diagnosis and repair. But if this transmission was recently repaired bring it back and tell them to do their job.

I hate to tell you but it sounds like your transmission was rebuilt incorrectly and need to be corrected or tossed and start anew, new transmissions for your truck are roughly $1,600. I'm sorry to hear about your problem.

I had a transmission flush done 2 weeks ago. 1 week later my \low traction light came on whenever I accelerated from a stop. Now 1 more week later my ABS and TSC lights are on. There is a little shudder as...


First, Iam not a fan of flushing a trans. Owned a trans shop years ago.
You may have caused some solenoid issues, with the clutch material and cooler sediment.
Work on the ABS,TSC issues. Wheel Speed Sensors may be going and just a coincidence, a couple weeks later.
Make sure the fluid is correct for your vehicle and at the correct level.
I pray you didn't go to one of the Quick Lube Franchises.
