transmission issue

50

Asked by Feb 02, 2013 at 11:54 AM about the 2003 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SXT Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In my 2003 dodge neon sxt...  the transmission input and output sensors have been changed about 6 months ago.  this solved the issue of the vehicle not shifting out of first gear and the speedo started working again. Now the vehicle is showing symptoms of the same issue I believe, speedo is floating above then below actual speed on acceleration and levels out at correct speed verified by flashing speed trap signs on the road.  when the speedo floats by over 15 mph it downshifts but only during heavy acceleration.I will replace the input and output sensors myself again, I was wondering if another part is the reason the sensors are failing?  possibly how often this will occur?

before you replace them again, just check the connections first, one may nave come loose

very good idea, I wish I was around when this problem showed up the first time. car was in psychotic mode when i came into the picture, simple advanced auto scan showed me the sensor issue. no trouble codes yet at this time.

it might be in "limp mode" which prevents the car from going out of 1st gear. can be caused from multiple issues, do you have a CEL on?

there is a shift solenoid on the outside front of the transmission that goes bad. I can't remember if it was the 1/2 or the 3/4 but easy fix. it is directly below the air cleaner box.
