2002 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 110682 miles
Last September my 2002 dodge neon SE went into GIMP mode while once in a while shifting with quite a jerk. We took it to Firestone where they checked the solenoid and the transmission control module. After some tweaking around the TCM was replaced and the car began shifting and performing well. However the check engine line never went away.
Last week I noticed it wasn't shifting all the way to the third gear while on the highway, so I took the first ramp off to the secondary roads and noticed anytime it downshift it does so with a jerk. Its been shifting fine ever since, but the tech noted (during an oil change) the transmission slipping/kicking when the downshift takes place.
Are we looking at another solenoid/computer problem? Or has the mileage finally caught and the transmission need replaced? How much would repairs run?
have the same problem?
