Neon stalling problem, please help?
I have a 95 plymouth neon. I bought it almost a year ago with my girlfriend. Everything seemed great but now the car is a complete nightmare.
In the morning before work the car seems to work fine, but later on, after work(around noon-2) it doesn't want to stay on and dies out.
It's stalling, horribly, and randomly. Htting a bump in the road causes the car to jerk while accelerating(just driving it in general does this but hitting bumps make it worse). And if we slow down to a stop, it stalls out immediately and it's a hastle to start back up because it seems to lack the power or fuel even though I have over half a tank.
The previous owner replaced the fuel pump some time before we bought the car(we have the receipt) and we've had a new alternator put in.
No matter what shop I go to, I get no codes when hooked up to a scanner, everything comes back fine. The only codes I've ever gotten were for the IA temperature sensor and the alternator and both have been replaced. I put new spark plugs in yesterday, as well but the problem is still happening.
I could really use some help on this one. I don't want to keep coming out of my pocket to buy random things that "might" be the problem for my very old but loveaable car.
I get a lot of "oh your fuel lines, or fuel filter might be dirty" and today a guy told me it could be my coils or my wires may need changing.
I've used some fuel injector cleaner in my gas and all fluids are at good levels. I'd really appreciate some advice from other neon users.
