I just had the engine replaced two days ago. And am having the same problem as with the old engine. Took truck into dealer back in Oct. of 2010. Reduce power light came on and was only able to drive about 15 miles/hr. While driving or idle the engine would just kill. When I took it into the dealer, all they did was change the cam actuator. 5 months later the engine killed.
Had a new engine put in and just picked up the truck on Saturday April 28. Yesterday while driving the check engine light started blinking and the pwr reduced to 15 miles again and then then truck stalled. Today the dealer called and said that they are getting at least 15 different codes but they all seem to point to the camshaft cranks.
Is there a known defect in this type of vehicle? What or is there any solutions. I just shelled out $4,000 for an engine and am experiencing the same issue as with the old one. I need some serious advise, PLEASE.
How can I get back on track??
Very hard to get to any ideals! Thanks
Is this an easy fix?
It sometimes happens on a road with a long gradual downhill, and I'm going about 3rd gear. It's been happening regularly also when I come up my road, which is a long uphill--not super steep, but an uphill climb. It will shift very hard and abruptly to the point of startling me.
The rain comes in at the bottom right side where the plastic panel meets the carpet, about 3 inches up from the floor board. There was mention of a drain plug being clogged under the battery. Does anyone have more info? Thanks.
car will not switch n to third geer .!!!!
When I use the front controls to have AC blow out the back, I only hear clicks (from the back control) but no air.
What will happen if I just replace pads?
Used JB weld to fix the hairline fracture in manifold missed a part so it blew out but trying again today. Pretty sure its got a burnt valve. Looking either for a quick fix to keep or a way to get rid of it. Spent 15 on the car itself and got almost 5 in it now
When it's been drove for awhile it clacks a little more than usual. sometimes it don't clack at all. Fresh oil turns back rather quickly. Neon website said it might be "piston slap". Never heard of that before. Doesn't show up on a code reader, and another Neon owner said he's had three Neons, and two clacked just like mine. It still has plenty of power and goes like hell, but make a ..... clack noise. any ideas?
already changed filter odor still there. I think the flush should be under the mfg warranty they say it is not.
It felt the air was coming from outside.
bought car used no owners manual.
you can put the car in reverse and it acts like neutrul and when on the exspressway car will not shift into 4th gear
