A clicking or popping sound from the front of the vehicle (left or right side) while accelerating from a stop may be fixed by installing a rubber gasket on the axle shaft.
If a Check Engine Light illuminates indicating leak detection pump (LDP) failure, the cause is often pinched or disconnected vacuum lines to the pump. Vacuum lines should be inspected before replacing the leak detection pump. Contamination (carbon or debris) in the pump can cause failure and any hoses should be cleared before a new pump is installed.
The sunroof may open only to the vent position and close, or it may open to the vent position and get stuck. This may occur after the sunroof was operated at high freeway speeds, which applies excessive force to the sunroof mechanism. The sunroof mechanism will need to be disassembled and reassembled, replacing mechanism parts as needed.

I bought this car second-hand with 16K miles on it. I got 191K total miles on it before the timing belt gave out and I had to replace the engine. No other major repairs to list - this car has been awesome! I have run a newspaper route for the last six years - seven days a week and about 80 miles per day. Other than wearing out tires and brakes a bit faster than the average driver, this car is like the Times of cars - takes a lickin' n keeps on tickin'! When it comes time to replace my car, I'll be looking for another used Neon.
