Ok i just got a 99 intrepid like a week ago, and today i was driving and..seems like my auto stick is stuck in 2nd gear. It starts off in second gear and it wont shift up or down. Im not sure if this only happens when im using auto stick or if its with both. But . . is this my trasmission or ..have others of you had this problem too?! please respond! thanks! :)

well..........it might be a transmission sensor (the most likely situation).........either an input or output sensor.

One of mine went out at 20,000 km when the car was only about 10 months old.

It's a good idea to change both if you have one bad.

it shouldnt hurt anything for local driving, i wouldnt try a cross country trip..... the parts should cost you around $50 and its an hour project in the driveway if you have the tools

Do not drive too fast for too long in 2nd.

The sensors are pretty easy to change with a the right tools.

When the guys say right tools, all they mean is a rachet, extensions, maybe a universal and a metric socket, I forget the size. Nothing special.

If you read the thread that hypnos linked above it says a 1" deepwall socket and some other stuff - read it carefully.
Only 17? - Can you change a spark plug? :)
Just be careful and use jackstands or ramps - you don't want the car falling off the jack at the wrong time ... :eek:
