The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times to diagnose the failure. He said there should have been a recall for this years ago. New cat converter, tie rod ends and alignment, motor mounts, engine and transmission fully serviced. This Dodge Neon delivers a Gas I4 2. I have had the vehicle in the shop on three occasions, and they are unable to find the problem!. Variable intermittent windshield wipers, Tinted glass, Tilt steering column.
At only 81,000 miles and six years old Dodge needs to recall these automatic transmissions!. He said there should have been a recall for this years ago. I don't know how long it's been since you had this done, but it sounds like a warranty issue to me. Consumer stated that last week while driving on the highway a truck was behind him and he needed to get more speed, so he stepped on the gas pedal to accelerate, however the vehicle did not respond, then it stalled. I am wondering what it should cost for all this and if they are cheating me which I know they probably are and aren't - they'll fix the problem but overcharge me. And at times would not go into gear at all.
. I dont know if they will want to charge for something that should have been done right in the first place. I feel that this is a safety hazard and would like this to be looked into further when looking online it looks as if I am not the only owner of 2002 Neon that is having this particular issue without any noticeable warning. Owner pulled vehicle to the shoulder and got out to try to locate source of sound. If I had been driving down the highway, and this had happened, the car would have stopped in the middle of the highway and been the cause of a serious accident that, thankfully, was avoided in this instance.
I haven't fixed the car yet. She stated that the gear shifter was able to be moved without the keys being in the ignition and without the brake pedal being depressed. Needed a whole new transmission as when the box blew up it send shards of metal through my transmission. Great commuter car, reliable daily driver. The light turned off before I arrived to the shop, but I thought that there would be something in the computer history. Vehicle made a screeching noise, check engine light came on, and vehicle started to sputter. What happens is the transmission coolant piece that goes into the radiator either corrodes or develops a leak some other way and the transmission fluid and the anti-freeze start mixing together.
The cylanoid kicks it backs making car feel like that. Consumer stated that last week while driving on the highway a truck was behind him and he needed to get more speed, so he stepped on the gas pedal to accelerate, however the vehicle did not respond, then it stalled. This was okay for 6000 miles. Who can afford a repair like this? The speedometer then dialed all the way up and then back to zero. The transmission is hung in first gear but a great mechanic special transmission can be purchased at Pick n Save. Also, while driving, the vehicle jumped from 65-68 mph back and forth.
When driving at high speeds would drop from fifth gear into third. The car now jerks when going into gear, runs very poorley when wet weather and shakes severley when at a stop. The vehicle rolled down a hill and crashed into the front yard. It comes equipped with these. Everything from electrical issues to radiator problems to the transmission.
My transmission died during a thunderstorm on my way home from work. I eventually had to go back 3 days later when the transmission light went on again. My car is only 5 years old, there is no reason on why I should be having so many problems. After that I returned again 2 times because my car started to make screaching noises when I stepped on the gas to accelerate and then again it stalled even tho in drive. Pulled off to check it out, as I slowed down on the offramp heard a crunching sound and the car shut off.
The engine light being on will not pass emissions. He kept telling the dealer about this problem and will take the vehicle back to dealer to have it checked again. And the computer was only shipped after Dodge was called and I had threatened to contact the better business bureau. The screeching sound you're hearing is probably coming from the convertor. I immediately shut this down.
The check engine light is now back on, upon having the computer code hooked up to the car, I have learned that there is a transaxle control system failure and an incorrect gear ratio condition in 2nd and 3rd gear. The contact stated while driving approximately 35 mph, an abnormal noise emitted from under the hood of the vehicle. Which I have no idea what that is. I will post in this section what I did, and what the cost was as soon as I can work on the car. It chewed up my cds.
