Just figured I'd record myself changing the trans fluid on my 00 Neon.
Directions: Jack up car on pinch weld, set jack stand, set oil catch pan under transmission and remove drain plugs with 15mm socket. Once fluid drains, replace drain plug and remove Fill plug with your hand (But could you pliars and access it over the drivers side wheel). Use Siphon Hose or long funel to pour 2.5 quarts into the fill hole, put cap back on and your done!!. Go do your local dodge dealer for the trans fluid.

10 Min Automatic Transmission Fluid Flush + Replacement (Most Cars)
Ever wanted to do a complete Automatic Transmission Service with a Fluid
Flush and Fluid Change! Well now you can do it in 10 Minutes! This DIY is
super easy really fast and ridiculously cheap. The reason we didn't change
the filter is because the filter on this transmission is internal and you
would have to take apart the transmission to get to it. There is a a
filter for the shift solenoid that can be cleaned to improve shifting.
There is a small black round filter for the transmission, its under the air
box near the solenoid that could be changed if you want to be more

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.
