The heat exchanger in the rad header on the bottom is shot. You need a new rad, flush the coolant, change the tranny oil and filter, clean out the resevoir.

2002 neon. how could transmission fluid be getting ino radiator?


On one of the tanks on the radiator you have two hosed that come from your transmission. This tank is your transmission cooler. Inside the plastic on the radiator you have a metal tube through which your transmission fluid pases through. That tube is surrounded by coolant/antifreeze which is used to cool your transmission fluid. A rupture in the tube would case fluids to mix possibly causing damage to the transmission.

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.

I need to add power steering fluid to my 2000 dodge neon. What kind do i need to buy?


Your owner's manual lists the correct fluid. Sometimes it is listed on the P/S fill cap. If you remove all the fluid then use ATF+4 fluid. If you are only topping it off then use ATF+3. This is the same fluid that you use in the Automatic Transmission of your Neon.

How do i check transmission fluid in a 2004 dodge neon


Its impossible to check transmission fluid, My best tip is to empty all oil out and look at your manual for car and See what it should be filled to sometimes its like 0.8L of fluid and fill up to level stated in manual that way you know its got enough fluid in and that its been replaced.

This is alot better than topping up old fluid

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.

2001 dodge neon dohc engine 2.0 radiater cracked inside a/t oil passage and mixed a/t oil and coolant . after replacing radiater I could not bleeding air.because before thermostat opining,coolant is...


Ok well there are two issues here the boiling and the potential for the transmission to be harmed by the contamination of the tranny fluid by antifreeze. First A/T fluid is not going to harm the coolant system in the least, however antifreeze in the trans. fluid will harm the automatic transmission get the tranny flushed as soon as possible , Change out the thermostat then refill radiator using 50% water 50 % antifreeze ( premixed in container) fill radiator then run the car without radiator cap add coolant as needed, put you radiator cap on and wait 5 - 10 minutes until car comes up to operatimg temp. you must observe the engine to make sure the electric radiator fan comes on after the car runs for at least ten minutes if it does not the problem is the usually the radiator fan relay or the fan coolant temperature sensor last in rare cases the fan itself. As for the air bleed usually letting the car run with the radiator cap off for ten to fifteen minutes will do it just make sure you don't remove the radiator cap when the car is hot 2nd degree burns usually hurt.

Antifreeze overflow


Heater not working sounds like a blower motor or heating core. Make sure that your antifreeze is green and mix 50/50 with water, now check and sqeeze your hoses running from and to the Radiator and if its VERY hard and has a crunch sound, it's blocked up, use radiator flush and follow directions, If not than look into the Thermostat b/c if it needs repaired than it will stick and let enough fluid into the engine so that it does not overheat yet with the pressure will back up into the resevoir. My new thermostat is a 140 degree and i've never soon my temp meter get to half way after that.
