    The shifter just goes up and down without going into gear. What do I do. It won't start now because when I turned it off I it was in Low gear. I could not get it to go into any other gear so I turned it off.

Transmission whines in 2000 dodge intrepid 2.7

If you are sure the transmission is the source of the whine then it would be caused by a part called the planetary gear pack inside the transmission. I would have this noise diagnosed by a transmission repair shop technician, most will do the preliminary diagnosis for free before you go and put a transmission in it. Most whining noises are not transmission related but are caused by a defective power steering hydraulic pump. Bottom line be sure before you replace any parts.

Where is neutral safety switch located on a 97 dodge intrepid? How do you get to it? I took it to a mechanic but he seems to have trouble locating it.

It is usually located at the bottom of the shifter attached to the shifter rod. It senses when the lever is in park or neutral to let you start the car.

They are pretty reliable. Transmissions sometimes have problems and battery changing, etc isnt easy. I have had 2 concordes and 2 intrepids, as well as a van from chrysler and for the most part they are fine except the transmissions. have had to change the transmission in 2 of the cars and the van (which takes a different one). Engines are good if taken care of. Rick

Hard to move Gear Shifter in a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES

I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.

Car won't go into park

Sounds like the shifter cable. I had a Plymoth Voyager that did this.

2000 Dodge Durango bad steering pully cable and pump

Unless the tow truck operator hooked up to the wrong thing the tow will have nothing to do with it.

I have never heard of any connection to the transmission and power steering, so the chances of the transmission repair causing the p/s failure is pretty low.

Is the repair shop reputible? I would recommend a second opinion from another shop.

Automatic Shifting Lever difficulties

Don't do it yourself. You would have to have the car on a hoist to do the work, as so much of what has to be done is out of sight and out of reach even if you were to jack up the car on stands. I had the shifter cable changed on my 1998 Intrepid ES, which had never seen snow or ice (I'm from Ontario), as all winters were spent in Florida. Besides changing the cable, the interlock has to be adjusted, and without the proper instruction, you would have nothing but problems, and probably would not be able to turn your key in the ignition switch. The total cost (at the dealer) for parts and labour cost me $286.16 U.S. tx. incl.The only good manual to explain even part of the procedure is the Chrysler shop manual ($96.00 ). Get the cable changed before it seizes up altogether, or you break the shifter lever etc. trying to force it. Hope this helps you. Regards Al Waters
