are you sure it is not 894? if so, then either your tranny fluid is low or dirty, or the trans itself is having an internal problem. with luck, you are just low on fluid, if so, check for leaks too.
Right, po984 refers to a Doge trany solenoid.
Po984 = Powertrain, transmission, shift solenoid (E)
It is 894 trans fluid looks dirty but its at level
