  • No I have not had the fuel pump replaced... Do you think that could be the problem? I don't want to put any more money into this car unless I know for sure that is the problem and it will be 100% fixed, you know? It's rough enough as it is for me. Is there somewhere, like Autozone, that I can get it tested free of charge? Or should I just take it to an auto shop?
  • I have a 2001 Dodge Neon and it is a great car and I love it. But sometimes it cuts out when you put it in reverse and a few times it has done it in drive and sometimes if you don't go quick enough it will die but then it starts back fine. And sometimes it is worse when first starting but does fine after driving for awhile. Any ideas on what it could be?
  • I have a 2000 Plymouth Neon I bottomed out in a big puddle and now, when I put it in Drive it blows the fuse for the ignition any Ideas? :sick: I'm at a loss
  • Have you looked in the trunk for a reset button according to my book some neons have as a safety switch
  • check your fuses
  • I am by no means a pro with cars but that sounds more like an electrical problem like maybe with the distibuter? have someone check the wiring and fuses and everything before you go and replace the starter.
  • CAN SOME ONE TELL ME HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM.
    THANK YOU,

  • do you have a manual or automatic transmission?
  • have you checked the fuel pressure at the fuel rail?it should be around 43 psi when starting. Then it should drop to about 38 psi while running. anything more or less than that indicates your pressure regulator is going bad.
  • what type fuel do you use. Do you pour gas treatment into the fuel tank before filling up every so often?Do you get a check engine light? if you do is it flashing or staying on?a few things may be wrong. this most common is a fuel pressure regulator going bad or random multiple misfires.
  • ive got a 95 neon that starts just fine and runs until it gets up to operating temp then stalls and starts again but wont stay running what is this can anyone help me sort this out
  • CHANGE THE COIL PACK AND THROTTLE BODY, THE THROTTLE BODY'S ON THESE THINGS SUCK, TRY CHECKING OUT. WWW.MODERNPERFORMANCE.COM. THE CAN HELP WITH THE PARTS.
  • THIS MAY OR MAY NOT HELP YOU OUT, BUT THERE IS A PICKUP SCREEN ON THE FUEL PUMP IN THE TANK AND SOME TIMES WITH CARS THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND A WHILE YU GET TRASH AS WE CALL IT IN THE TANK AND WHEN TURNING THE TRASH SLOSHES ONTO THE SCREEN TEMPORAILY BLOCKING THE FUEL, I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN ON OTHER CARS NOT MY NEON AND AFTER FLUSHING THE TANK OUT AND INSTALLING NEW FUEL FILTER AND SCREEN THE PROBLEM STOPPED, HOPE THIS MAY HELP YOU OUT ON THIS PROB.
  • DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY CABLE WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING, IF IT STAY ON THEN YOUR ALTINATOR IS FINE IF IT DIES GO GET IT CHECKED, THEY WILL OVER CHARGE AS WELL AS UNDER, CHECK THE BATTERY SOMETIMES YOU CAN HAVE ONE DEAD CELL, IT WILL CHARGE BUT WON'T HOLD IT.
  • FOR THE PRICE ALSO CHANGE THE CRANK SENSOR. THIS MAY HELP, AS THEY START TO GO BAD WHEN THEY GET HOT IS WHEN THEY ACT UP.
  • Hi. I've been reading through some of these posts and it seems like many of you have had the same problem -- with many different solutions. My '97 started stalling right after I start it, unless I give it gas. It will also stall when I decelerate. It seems to have trouble maintaining a stable idle speed when it does run.

    I know its not the spark plugs and I just had the fuel system cleaned. It ran great for about 10 miles after I picked it up, and now I can't even keep the engine going. I'm hoping for a little insight. There's no engine light.

    Thanks for helping.
  • Hi, I have a 95 SOHC that started flashing the check engine light 2 days ago...now the thing has stalled and blew the 20A fuse under the hood. I have no charging or battery problems. It does have an intermittent MAP sensor. Did the PCM go bad?? :confuse:
  • I have a 95 plymouth neon. It stalls and surges alot. You reset the computer and it runs good untill the computer logs in the trouble codes then it starts stalling and the only to get it to go is by mashing on the gas. I repaced the throttle body once the tps about 5 times, idle control unit a few times,map sensor the whole nine yards. Yesterday i replaced the computer and stiil no luck. It runs good for a few miles then starts medding up. ANY IDEAS?????? No codes show up besides the o2 sensor

    00 Neon Automatic The car is not starting. Lights are bright, and I had jumpers on anyway. Car is doing nothing. No clicks, no noise when key is turned at all. Car is automatic, I noticed that the car rolls when in any gear other than park. Does this indicate any of the problems?

    I tapped on the starter w hammer, no change.

    I guess I am wondering if there is some kind of transmission switch or something stopping it from starting.

    Any help please! Thanks
    Jodi.
