Hi, I had a 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT with that crappy transmission in it, I had the same problem at or around approx. 60,000 miles. When I first purchased it the transmission was seamless through the ratios, after a while I noticed a hesitation lets say from first to second gear, and it kept getting worse and I felt it through most "gears". I also lost a lot of power and got worse fuel mileage. I asked my mechanic and he told me to take it to the dealer because of the type of transmission in it. Well they told me that I needed it flushed ($280 later) and it didn't work, it made it worse. I went online and did some research on it and found that there are many people with the same problem, the Chrysler corporation knows about it but doesn't want to issue a recall because it would cost too much to replace the transmissions in all cars sold. The actual problem with mine was the transmission control module which costs roughly around $1,000 to replace and shortly after that the transmission fails and that is approx. $6,000-$7,000 to replace that.

Hello
You'll notice what appears to be a dipstick tube at the front of the vehicle on the drivers side, and it should have a warning label to use CVT oil. But when you remove the top, there's no stick. The dipstick itself is a "special tool" (Miller No. 9336). The stick is marked for fluid levels for different temperatures, although there is an acceptable range.
Read the instructions carefuly that come with the tool
Thank you!

My dodge caliber in stuck in neutral


You have a cvt transmission in it. First check the fluid. It takes special fluid. Don't use regular transmission fluid in it. If it is full, have the codes read. It could be the TCM, a chip in the transmission, or clutches are worn out.
