Hey guys. I'm looking at picking up a 03 neon from a friend that says it needs a tranny... Automatic. Will any auto from 03 to 05 work? Also I heard that pt auto transmissions will fit too... This correct?

'02 and '03 used the 41te. '04 and '05 used the 40te. The 41te is slightly more durable.

PT Cruisers would be a good source, but I think they also used the 40te, so be sure of what you are getting. The 40te will work, but it might not last as long as a 41te.

A low mileage GT Cruiser, or turbo PT Lite would make great candidates for a decent 41te, assuming a trans-axle failure isn't why they are in the bone yard.

The difference with the '02's is they used a stand alone TCM, as where the '03 to '05 have the TCM integrated into the PCM. As far as the ATX is concerened, that makes no difference.

Did some taking to the guy. He said the old tranny was not moving so they replaced it with a used transmission and it still doing the same thing does these trainees need to be reprogrammed by Dodge or something to work properly?

It should move. They need a Quick Learn procedure done to get everything in sync with the PCM and the fluid volumes of each clutch pack, but the transaxle has to be able to move the car to do that.

If they re used the torque converter, there might be an issue with that. Also the torque converter needs to be installed correctly, or it will damage the oil pump in the trans. It should slide in and go deeper two times to engage the oil pump drive lugs properly.

The safest bet is when removing the ATX, if you do not plan on replacing the front seal, is to put some blocks against the TC, and clamp them in place until you are ready to mate it to the engine. That way you know the oil pump is safe.


If you pull the TC, you should install a new seal. It is almost guaranteed to begin pouring fluid out within 100 miles if you don't. The few that i didn't replace the seal, they began pouring $5/quart oil out onto the road. For the cost and effort, it isn't worth the hassle to pull it all apart again. The same goes for the axle seals.
