Typically, it is integrated into the stock radiator. Most standard shift transmissions do not have lubricant coolers. It is specified for the front-wheel drive Torqueflites A-413,. You're on your own if you decide to use something else. It is important to note that, if one is to perform such a modification, that a skid plate is highly recommended. Dodge has been developed sophisticated transmissions through years and it is critical that you add the exact type of transmission fluid stipulated by your owner's manual typically in the back of the manual in a section titled Fluid Capacities. Operating temperature must be attained prior to fluid level adjustment.
The engine in your 2001 Dodge Neon should be running when you perform a transmission fluid level check, otherwise it will be inaccurate. It is specifically matched to the synchronizer material for good shifting, and has special friction modifiers to last a lifetime. I would try and find a newer motor if you can. There are needle roller bearing on all speed gears to reduce friction and extend gear life. And then if it still feels spongy you are suposto repeat the proses. The one on top is the fill. They just need to have someone shift with the engine off while the other person watches the cables at the transaxle.
Check your dipstick as you do it. The input shaft bearing assembly clutch release bearing sleeve, input shaft bearing, bearing housing, and seal was not serviceable as individual components, and thus the whole assembly needed replacement if something went wrong. Now that you have the transmission cooler let me tell you what you will need to install it. I read that it is fully synthetic and has the most friction modifiers for faster, firmer shifts which saves your clutch plates. Answer Pull out the dipstick and pour the fluid in the tube.
Make sure all the fittings and connections line up. All forward ratios were synchronized, with high capacity dual-cone brass synchronizers in first and second gear and single-cone synchronizers of a paper friction material on the other gears it is more durable and clash-resistant than brass. Advance Auto Parts has 3 different Automatic Transmission Fluid for your vehicle, ready for shipping or in-store pick up. Go do your local dodge dealer for the trans fluid. Once this occurs, then the plug must quickly be reinstalled.
Regards, Jay Feb 03, 2011 Hahaha. If you are having problems with the transmission in your Neon, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem. The specs of the fluid should be on the dipstick or in the manual. Its forward speeds used constant-mesh helical-type gears that reduced gear noise. This eliminates the need for different crankshafts. You will need a long funnel with a narrow opening or a tube to deliver the fluid into the hole. .
Directions: Jack up car on pinch weld, set jack stand, set oil catch pan under transmission and remove drain plugs with 15mm socket. Also grease was not required on the retainer where the release bearing rode. Fifth gear was an overdrive gear to improve fuel economy. Adjustment for the side gear was made by changing the side gear thrust washers, which came in select thicknesses and various sizes. The selector shaft moved up and down first to second, third to fourth, fifth to reverse , and the crossover shaft moved side to side between shift planes. Each of the separate crossover rail selection and select levers has pure rotary motion which minimizes shift effort.
Before starting make sure you have the correct wrench to remove the tranny drain and fill plugs. In front of the factory radiator is good. If it does, then that's an idication that the unit is overfilled. You will need some way to pump fluid up into the transmission from below due to the fill port being on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan. An exposed tranny line coming off the bottom most portion of the casing which is where the drain plug hole is at , is a recipe for disaster, unless it is protected.
So we have to buy new parts? The one on the bottom is the drain plug. It sounds dumb because it is but that is the way u do it. A reverse brake mechanism minimized reverse engagement clash. Luckily no problems with my trans yet. Royal Purple Synchromesh has been successfully used by many in both racing and street applications. I will tell you the specific area that I installed it, and how I did it, because I saw no other reasonable way to do it! The assemblies had a hub, sleeve, struts, springs, and detent balls. It's messy and inconvenient; I know.
