Where is the Speed sensor located on a 2000 dodge neon?

It depends on the motor and speed of your transmission -- SOHC or DOHC. The DOHC (Canadian built) was put into 47% of the 2000 Dodge Neons during their second generation line. This means they are not like the SOHC models. Second, most had the 3-speed automatic transmission, some did come with a manual transmission.Whether you have a newer model 4-speed or older 3-speed automatic impacts whether you will have these sensors or not. ALL 2000 Dodge Neons had the 3-speed automatic (as far as I can tell).Complete computer control of the Dodge Neon automatic transmission began with the 2002 model and the 4 speed automatic transmission which definitely uses these sensors.AGAIN, the 3-speed automatic transmissions found on the DOHC apparently do not have the same type of sensors as the 4 speed automatic on later built models.The closest you can come to finding a manual for the 2000 Dodge Neon is with the 1999 manual as it is the only one that has the DOHC motor.
