High idle and transmission problems.
My girlfriend recently aquired a 1994 Intreped with about a 100k miles on it and I have noticed two problems with it.
1. At various times when the car is in Park or in Netural it will idle at about 1200-1300rpms. Most of the time it idles well under 1000 rpms. What could cause this?
2. Sometimes the transmission does not want to shift out of first gear. It will hold first until about 5000 rpms then suddenly shift. Then when slowing down, when you are comming to a stop and the car shifts back into first get it does so with almost a "bang" and you can feel the car buck slightly.
I don't know much about Dodge products since I haven't worked on one since I overhauled my 86 LeBarron and I'm sure this car is much different. I do know how to work on cars I'm just not sure how the electronics work on her car.
I would like to comment on the nice web site and it seems to be well laid out. If anyone likes to run at the track I'm always up for meeting new people in the Northern VA area and my club tries to hit the track at least once a month in the warmer months. Us guys with big family cars gotta stick together. ;)
