Check the fluid level in the transmissioin, and if it's ok, I think it's time to have the fluid and filter changed oer have the system flushed.

If this doesn't solve the problem, the transmission will have to be rebuilt or replaced with a used or rebuilt transmission.

High rpm in 1999 ply neon

I can't see the car or know the complete history, but with that many miles it would need to be way below book value.
The car overall was designed to last about 150k in my opinion.
If the check engine light is not on, there may be something broken in the transmission to keep it from shifting into overdrive.
If the check engine light is on the code could point you in the direction of a solenoid or other electrical part.
I would not buy it unless you are prepared to spend the money to replace the trans.

It appears that the transmission on my 1999 Plymouth has went out, It will not shift out of 1st gear. If it is the transmission, where can I buy one ?

If your transmission was working fine before you experienced this problem more than likley the shift solenoid has failed.
It cost's around $140.00 for the part, it's a lot less than a new transmission.
This is a common problem for this vehicle

Transmission slipping......

If its the main seal gone,you will have to remove the tranny regardless because the main seal is the torq converter seal.Even though it leaks,if its slipping when full of oil chances are your tranny is no good,if it shifts fine its not to late,just keep it full of oil and have the leak fixed.Look under the front of the car when its in park,with the e.brake on and running,look for the leak.If the leak is between the the motor and the tranny its probably the main seal.Check the transmission pan,axle seals and coolant lines for leaks also.Changing the transmission is no small job and should be done by a garage if your not sure how to do it.Hope this helps.
