Question about 2003 Dodge Neon
I just had a clamp come off of the tube to my transmission and I had a friend repair it. Now my car is running but it has a harsh down shift when shifting out of 2nd. If I am going 40mph or over and slow down to about 20-25mph it jerks me while down shifting. What is causing this problem and is it an easy fix? Also, how do you fix it? Please help, I need answers!

You need to free up your throttle pressure control cable linkage that sits above your shift cable linkage at the top of your transaxle on drivers side. I had the same problem from time to time, caused it to stay in lower gear longer, and shift down hard when slowing down. Happened more when I drove it a little harder as pushing gas pedal further down causes it to rotate, but then sticks & doesn't come back right a way. Free it up with penetrating lube first, then put a good coat of spray grease like white lithium after its moving freely again, and it should be problem free for a while. You may have to move some things to get at it. If you need a picture email (firstname.lastname@example.org), seeing how I can't seem to figure out how to send it from here.

Here is some possible reasons why your transmission is having those problems .
* The gear shift linkage is binding
* There is an internal problem in the transmission
* The throttle cable is broken or disconnected
* The vacuum modulator on the transmission is faulty or the vacuum line is damaged
* The electronic transmission control circuit may be faulty

Cheapest thing to try is a fluid flush and filter change. Unfortunately, if that does not work, then next bet is probably a rebuild.

Low voltage to your electrical system can cause many problems. The best way to eliminate lots of options is to fix the alternator and see if it still has the same problem.

Sounds like you have clutch problems, this can be the hydraulic release system or the clutch plate that is defective, only a trained technician can tell the difference. Most shops will do a preliminary diagnostic for free.
