How to Troubleshoot the Transmission on a 1998 Dodge Intrepid

    • 1). Start up your Dodge and drive it around the block a couple times to warm up the transmission.

    • 2). Lift up the hood and find the transmission filler tube and dipstick. It will be located on the driver's side of the engine.

    • 3). Pull out the dipstick and wipe it off with the cloth. Look at the fluid and make sure its not burnt or a very dark color. The transmission fluid should be red in color. Put the dipstick back in the tube and pull it out again. Check the level to make sure it is at the full position. Low transmission fluid can cause the Dodge Intrepid transmission to fail.

    • 4). Set up the ramps in front of the front tires and drive the car up onto the ramps. Set the parking brake. Place the tire block behind one of the rear tires.

    • 5). Lie down under the car so that you are looking up at the transmission. The transmission is connected directly to the rear of the engine.

    • 6). Use your work light to study the transmission. Look for any loose connections or leaks. Loose connections and leaks will cause your transmission to malfunction.
