Question about 2002 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

I own a 2002 Dodge Neon ES. The other day as I attempted to pull into my driveway, the transmission slipped and I couldn't get into the drive. After I got it in the drive I noticed a trail of fluid all the way down my street. My mechanic said it could be a rusted sidepin on the transmission. Huh??

First thing to do is look under the car were it is setting to see if there is a puddle of oil or transaxle fluid. Oil will be brown and the transaxle fluid will be a deep red color. With the car setting on level ground check the oil and transaxle fluid levels. ( you will need to have the car running to correctly check the fluid level in the transaxle). Once you have done this then you can tell what fluid level is low or none at all. If it is the transaxle level that is low then it could be a blown seal in transaxle causing the problem. (Rusted Sidepin ???) hope this will help you.

Shifting problems 2002 dodge neon


I would start with checking the fluid level in the transmission.

With the vehicle on a level surface start it and let it run in park. Pull the transmission dipstick wipe it clean, reinsert and pull it out. If the fluid is not in the cross hatch area add 1/2 quart of ATF+4 and recheck the fluid level (it will take a couple of minutes for the fluid to settle out of the dipstick tube). Continue adding 1/2 quart at a time until the level is in the cross hatch area.

With your foot on the brake run the transmission through all the gears. place the transmission in park and recheck the level, adding as necessary.

Then drive it and see what happens.

You must have the TCM scanned for fault codes, you could have many issue that can cause this problem. Do not guess, it is huge waste of money. Have the proper testing performed.

Would the engine over heating on my 2002 dodge neon cause my transmition to slip?


No, this is not related. You just happen to lucky enough to have two problems at the same time. If the engine got to a point where is was glowing hot, it could transfer the heat to the cooling lines causing air bubbles in the fluid and henceforth a slipping tranny. However, your engine would seize solid forever given those circumstances.

Transmission won't shift


Sorry English terminology , I had a similar problem with a Ford , it was an automatic transcontrol system , I had caught the underside on a rock in the road , the bolts holding the transmission box to the engine came loose and it would not go into gear , the transmission box was located between the engine and drive shaft , also I'm told they have a clutch plate which can wear down in time too , but the auto would stop moving altogether and just rev up
