I have a 1998 Dodge Neon that when I turn the key the engine is trying to turn over, but seems there is no gas. I disconnected the fuel line under the hood and when I turn the key to see if the fuel pump turns on, gas does in fact come out of the line. Although it seems a little low. I looked under the car and right next to the fuel pump was a part labled "fuel accumulator." When I unplugged the hoses, alot of black debris poured out.
I have read conflicting info saying that this is also the filter. But I also have read that the fuel filter is in the fuel pump. I do in fact see the part that in the diagrams would be the filter in the pump. The car has 140xxx miles on it, and as far as I know the fuel filter has never been replaced. Would the filter be the problem? Or is this "fuel accumulator" the problem, or even both?

I just replaced the fuel pump. Engine started fine and immediately. Then the engine wouldn't turn over and there is no "whinning sound comming from the fuel pump like it had always before. I checked the relays and they are O.K. BUT, I HAVE, (and there shouldn't be any voltage present), I HAVE VOLTAGE PRESENT ON THE TERMINAL IN THE PCM THAT CORRESPONDS WITH RELAY TERMINAL NUMBER 86 WITH THE IGNITION KEY IN THE "OFF" POSITION ! ! ! (SEE Haynes repair manual 4-3 under "main relays" #11)

where is the fuel filter located on a 1998 dodge neon sport?

The car sometimes starts and runs 20 minutes parked, then dies. Sometimes it doesn't start at all. It just dies with no warning at all. Sometimes it will start back in a few minutes, sometimes it won't.

My 1996 dodge neon recently started idling extremely high and i have also noticed my motor mounts are broken. Could that have anything to do with the problem? If not what else could be causing the throttle to stick?

My 1997 dodge neon has been overheating for about 2years on and off. For the past 2 months it overheats if I drive it more than 20 minutes. Everyday! Now that the weather is hot, I can't go more than a few miles. Water pump, radiator, t-stat, hoses and everything else under the sun has been replaced. Brand new. Still happens. Y?????????????????? When the antifreeze cap is taken off, antifreeze spews all over the place, boiling over everywhere. I am concerned about safety in continuing to drive the care while it's overheating as I do not have a choice. I need to get to and from work and this is my only way.

I just recently noticed that when I turn on my a/c, that my car cuts in and out. When I come to a stop, my car just shuts off. I can run my car all day as long as the a/c isn't running. My mechanic did say that my condensor fan needs to be replaced. Any suggestions?

water gets in passenger's side cabine. floor, right side.

i was driving and i turned the a/c on an the car died the mechanic said it was sucking air into the tailpipe. is it the intake valve or exhaust valve an how hard is it to replace

How much would it cost me to replace the timing belt in a 2003 Dodge Neon? I'm buying a used car, and there's a few things I want to fix before it costs me any more. The car has 93,000 miles on it and the previous owner has not replaced it.

Secondly, the windshield is also cracked. I know a good mechanic and he says he knows places that will replace a windshield anywhere from 150 to 170 hundred dollars. Does that seem accurate? Is that without labor, and just for the glass itself?

Lastly I think there's on lose gasket. I don't know much about cars and so I'm not sure which. The owner of the car told me that because of this lose gasket the car leaks a little oil. What exactly could this run up to cost if it were replaced?

I'm going to talk to both the owner of the car tomorrow as well as a mechanic, but I'd like to know ahead of time what price ranges I should be expecting.

1 day while I was driving, the gear seems to be slipping and hard to stay in gear; stop by the side and noticed trans fluid squirted all over at lower firewall and dripping to the ground. There was a little puddle on top of the trans-axle. Replaced the trans-axle gasket and the transmission filter and gasket, topped up the fluid and cleaned up. Everything seems fine, no more leaking and gears shifted fine. Let it idle for few minutes then drive around the block with no problem and no more leak. I thought it was fixed but the next day I drove over to the public library a couple of miles away to drop off some books then turned around and head home. Almost reaching home the gear started slipping again. Pulled up onto my driveway, turned off the car; I noticed a trail of transmission fluid from the road all the way to my driveway. looked under my car and saw fluid dripping down to the ground. Back to the same problem that I had before. Have no idea where it leaks from and how to fix it, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
