#1593 of 1773 1999 plymouth neon transmission shift points
Sep 08, 2006 (7:41 am)
I just bought a 1999 Plymouth Neon 4 door sohc w/92k miles.
It had camshaft position sensor leak that I fixed.
The right and back side of engine were covered with oil.
Tranny does not shift right from 1st to 2nd - 3000 rpms/25 mph. The other shifts seem fine. Tranny seems strong.
I'm hoping maybe bad sensor or adjustment is the cause... oh please please please.
I changed tranny fluid + filter putting in mopar atf+4.
My guess is this was first fluid change for tranny but I did not see any unusual problems in fluid. The fluid did not smell burnt and magnet had normal amount of filings,
I've seen alot worse anyway.
I tried to adjust throttle position cable but found Haynes
manual a bit confusing. I tried adjusting it a few different ways but tranny never changed shift point from 1st to 2nd. I have noticed that when taking off w/ 2nd on shift lever the shift is always better about 2500 rpms.
Still seems a bit on the high side.
Any suggestions on what I can check out?
I can explain how I set throttle pos. cable if that helps.
Thanks in advance.
