Why would the transmission stay in low gear.I have put new input and output sensors in. Runs fine in low gear and reverse is ok. But will not shift up into 2 or drive.

I realize this is sometime later, but my 2002 just did the same. They said it tore up everything inside, to the tune of about 2 grand to fix it.

My 1994 dodge had the same problem. First I had the solenoid Pack replaced,that cost $550.00, mind you they only charged me two hours labor, some shops may charge a bit more. After that, nothing changed. The RPM's still surged while the car was driving at a steady 60mph randomly or anytime I took off from a fresh start or it just wouldn't shift down into lower gear while I sped up. But when other people drove it they said it drove just fine. It took me using my cell phone and taking video of the speedometer while I was driving to show the mechanic for them to finally "get it". Immediately they knew what the problem was. They fixed the Throttle position sensor module and it runs perfectly. They said both things needed done, they did not charge me anything for the second repair. Hope this helps somebody else out there. Good luck.

OK LISTEN UP EVERYONE!!!

If your Intrepid won`t get out of 1st gear or past second and your engine light comes on and stays on we know what it is ...

We did so much research and this is what we found ... afterall, we fixed it and it works AMAZING!!!

FIRST OF ALL, GO TO THE NEAREST PICK N`PULL ...(Where you pull your own used parts from vehicles in the lot)... AND ...

TAKE OUT A PART CALLED "TCM" Transmission Control Modual!(The higher the last two letters are in the code the better and newer the TCM is - AF or AG ... or even AK) Then get your intrepid down to the Dealership. Remove the old TCM yourself from your intrepid and install the new - used one! Then, get the electrical mechanic to re-program it for you!

Replace your cam sensor too while you`re at it ... worth it in the end!!

The entire cost should be around $400.00 Total!

WE DID THIS AND NOW OUR INTREPID RUNS PERFECTLY!!! It only works on the Intrepids with a 2.7L Engine!

GOOD LUCK ... TRY THIS ... IT WORKS!!!!

I know this can be a pain, but you need to see where it is leaking from. Had an Intrepid that had an external filter, so you have to check any lines from the transmission, the filter if external, the pan seal itself, etc. If it is the pan leaking, either from getting hit and twisted a little, or bad gasket, etc. you may not have it dump fluid right away. I have a Windstar doing that right now, when the fluid makes it way back to the pan after sitting for a day or two, then it dumps on the ground because the pan has a slight twist on the front lip. If you have any ?'s feel free to email me at my addy. [email protected]
