2000 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
Hi.I have a 2000 Dodge neon with approximately 185,000 miles only about 85,000 on a rebuilt transmission. Over the past 2-3 months the transmission will not down shift smoothly from 3rd to 1st when I come to a stop if left in drive. If I manualy shif into 2nd it works fine. It also (when warmed up) will not shift from 2nd to 3rd unless I let off the gas for a second or two. Finally at highway speeds it will occationally down shift from 3rd to 2nd without warning and if I try to pass oit may also shift all the way into 1st. I have changed the fluid and filter with a slight bit of improvement. I will change it again to try to remove more fluid form the converter. Could it be the speed sensor of shift solenoid? The car is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission again. Any help would be great
have the same problem?
