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.
Dumb Things NOT To Do To Your Car

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.

2001 dodge neon transmission problem
replaced upper, lower motor mounts. replaced the cv axles and joints "axles
and joints are sold as one unit" and transmission mount. any ideals? i hope
it is not the transmission but thats about all that is left. but it shifts
thou all the gears.
Replacing trans control module in a Dodge Neon SXT
My Neon ended 2013 with a bang - when the trans got stuck in 1st gear! The
error codes were P0700 and P0755, which is the shift control solenoid. The
Dodge Dealer wanted $720 for a new one, but I found one on Amazon for less
than $100! I also replaced the two speed sensors, trans filter, gasket, and
new fluid. This should've been a one-day job, but it took me two days
because I had to run inside every 15 minutes to avoid frostbite because it
was 12 degrees below freezing! What a way to spend the New Year. Oh well,
at least I had two days off in a row!
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

Trans & Clutch 1 - Remove Transmission
This is the first in a multi-video series regarding clutch tech. The
clutch itself is a simple mechanism, but it's buried deep in the engine, so
you can't just cover the clutch. First, you have to cover how to remove
the transmission to get to it.
This project started off strange, got kind-of not-good, and then took a
turn for the worst. The typical clutch job is not as difficult as the next
video will display, but it's good this happened to me because I film this
kind of crap. If for some asinine reason you encounter the kind of failure
I experienced, you'll know what to do after the next video. Clutch
assembly will be covered in a third video.
About the car:
You saw the other assembly video. You know when I put this thing together.
You know it doesn't come out to play when it's cloudy. I've had it on the
road less than an earl change. Freshly rebuilt TRE Stage 2.5 trans with a
brand new ACT 2600 and a sprung 6-puck (MB1-XTG6) on a stock flywheel.
This is Transmission #4.

discusses the function of synchro rings typically used in Muncie, T10, T5,
and T56 transmissions.
GM 4L60-E Transmission Re-Assembly (Rebuild) - Transmission Repair
On this video we go through the re assembly of a 4L60E Transmission. I
tried to make this video shorter for you so I skipped the bushing
installation and installing the bolts on the valve body. But you can go to
the teardown video for reference on where each bolt goes, since they're
different sizes. I will make a follow up video on bushing installation.
Honda Civic Transmission, BMXA, Teardown Inspection
Honda BMXA Transmission.
This is a transmission of a Honda civic BMXA. Here we see the most common
issues I see with these units. The most common being a restricted filter.
Had some camera issues, hope you don't mind. A clip came out black and

GM 4L80-E Transmission Rebuild - Transmission Repair
Here is a full rebuild video of a GM 4L80-E Transmission. We see the parts
that took for a successful repair. Complete overhaul kit with clutches and
steels and molded pistons. All bushings as well.
There's some items that I personally would've add to the parts list but
since this is for a Transmission Shop down the road this is what I was
Items I would add are:
Actuator Feed limit Valve, Transgo.
TCC Regulator Valve Kit from Sonnax.
1-2 & 3-4 Shift Valve Springs from Sonnax.
TCC PWM Solenoid.
And Shift Solenoids if needed.
$15 a very small risk to take when the reward is an engine that lasts forever.
5/12/2014 update: Look folks. I wouldn't believe the things that I'm
writing about my van's performance, if I wasn't personally involved since
the beginning. It is almost outrageous to believe that my van now has
606,000 miles on it now, and there has never been any repairs to the engine
or transmission. The only thing that I've done differently is use Bi-tron.
That says it all.
1/19/2014 update: 583,988. Still going strong. Wouldn't believe it if
it wasn't mine. There has not been any engine or transmission repair done
to my van yet.
10/29/13 Update: 571,046 miles Installed new catalytic converter about
25,000 miles late, but it seems not much harm done. Starting to burn a
little more oil. Add quart every 800 miles. Motor is still strong and
doesn't blow smoke, and neither am I in these updates.
1/10/2013 Update: 544,693 miles. No engine or transmission repairs.
Saving me a lot of money when I have little to spend.
9/07/2012 Update: 521,114 miles. Still no engine or transmission repair.
Was all that we needed to remain the number 1 auto manufacturer in the
world since the beginning in 1903 Bi-Tron? Makes me wonder.
6/17/2012 Update: Well folks, I'm over the 1/2 million mile mark, 503,000
with no money spent on engine and transmission repair. I wouldn't believe
it if I hadn't seen it myself.. There are perhaps other additives out
there that may be just as effective as Bi-Tron, but I do not know about
them. For the costs of the product, Bi-Tron is a gift that keeps on
5/14/2012 Update: I'm now at 495,000. Just 5,000 miles to make it to half
a million miles with absolutely no engine and transmission repair because
4/24/2012 Update: My cargo van is at 491,000 miles now. Half a million
miles with no engine or transmission repairs is only 9,000 miles away,
about 5 weeks. I'm very satisfied with Bi-Tron.
12/19/2011 Update: I didn't believe this video when I saw it.
Nevertheless, I figured that I had very little to lose by giving the
Bi-Tron products a try. When you drive for a living, you're always looking
for ways to save on fuel and maintenance.
I'm glad that I took the chance. My engines and transmissions have lasted
much longer using their products. They quite simply are outstanding. My
delivery vehicle is a 2005 Chevy Express cargo van. It now has 461,000+
miles and has never had engine or transmission problems. Yes, both the
engine and transmission are starting to show some wear, but they are still
quite a ways from needing overhauls. I'm confident they'll last 500,000
miles.....only 39,000 to go now. The savings are already into the
thousands of dollars. The engine treatment and transmission treatment are
only $15 each per normal filter changes once you sign up to be a
Go to http://www.bi-tron.net and look for the "Join" and "Opportunity"
links so that you can give the engine and transmission treatments a try at
wholesale prices. You will not be sorry or you will be so glad that you
did. I am not into marketing these products in a big way just yet, but
some day I may be and this will be the product because it works so well.
For the results you will get, these products are a gift that keeps on
