How does the 97 dodge intrepid auto shift work?

when in auto shift mode you place gear selector in auto shift and as you drive you are in control of upshifting and down shifting, when you want to shift up you slide shifter to the right and to down shift you slide shifter to the left, but also know that the vehicle will up shift on its own if rps are to high and will not downshift all the way back to first, and try not to take off in higher gears that nwill burn the transmission

How do you use 4WD on a 1999 dodge durango?

there are 2 systems.
one is a part time system only.the 4x4 locks and is for ice mud and snow.Driving full time will damage the transfer case.The other system is a full time system and the selector says 2wd,4wd part time ,4wd full time and 4 lo. if in full time,it can be driven all the time even on dry roads.The full time is really an all wheel drive system.
the 4low is a very low gear and the main shifter has to be put in neutral and then the transfer case put in 4 low.attempting to put it in 4 low while in "drive" will make a gear grinding noise.
getting out of 4 low is the opposite.shifter to neutral and then put it in 2wd and then in drive.The newer durango has an electronic transfer case with a dial on the dash.The 2002 was available with 2wd,4wd,awd and 4 lo on a switch.The 1999 has the lever on the floor .

Stuck in 4 wheel high lock

I had the same problem just yesterday. My shifter lever for the 4x was just flopping around. I crawled under the driver side right behind the driver front tire and there was a lever hanging down with an "L" shape on the end of it and a groove cut all the way around it. That lever is the end of that shifter lever inside of your vehicle. it attaches to another lever "a flat bar with a hole drilled into it and mounted to the side of the transmission. Don't attempt to move the flat bar but do reposition the lever inside the vehicle so that you can put the "L" shaped lever back into the hole of the flat bar. There is supposed to be what they call an "E" ring on the end of this "L" shaped lever that slips over the shaft in that Groove I was telling about. it snaps into place and holds the two levers together. It's missing so go to auto parts store and get a new one. I'm headed there today. Shift your car into 2wd and drive. Then replace the "E" ring that's missing and you're good to go.

Good luck

1989 Dodge Dakota 2WD Auto Trans won't start in park

Thats right, it's a neutral safety. There is a wire running beside the shifting linkage at the tranny. It has to be broke or cracked. It may even have come umplugged. There is no safety issue though. I would feel comfortable with my son driving it. The biggest problem would be putting it in nuetral and it still not starting. Hope this helps.

Toyota pickup 1988 V6 Auto tranny does not shift into low 1

I guess the best , easiest & cheapest thing to do, right of the start is get fluid & filter changed, and lube all cables & linkages thoroughly, unless that's all been done recently.
