Happens often, not every time. Mostly after driving for a while.
I have an 03 dodge neon sxt. 2.0 l engine. I took it to a mechanic and had the shocks, struts all 4 mounts, oil change and an alignment done. My steering wheel now shakes and so does my dash. I've broight the car back to the because it didn't do it befor i had the work done and they cant figure out what's wrong. They cleaned the fuel line and plugs but it still shakes. I've had to bring the car to them 8 times since the initial work was done. When it gets below 1000 rpms is when it shakes. What could they have done to make my car do this?
I am having issues getting my 2002 neon 2.0 sohc to stay running after changing the cylinder head. if I unplug the camshaft positioning sensor the car will start. it dies as soon as I plug it in. I went and bought a new one and it does the same thing. is it possible they gave me a 2003 cylinder head and if so can I make it work?
Instead of engine light flashing, I got 5 "beeps". What does that mean?
Water pump failed timing belt broke.. I want to get a used motor to put in my 2001 neon SE but I wanna do some mods as well like putting the high output motor in it.
The timing belt is new
I have had an ongoing problem with the engine cutting out, losing spark and just plain dying while driving! There was an oil leak which dripped onto the engine wire harness. It comes wrapped in some kind of fabric tape which wicked the oil right up into the junction box next to the fuse block under the hood and from there also into the PCM. Replaced that twice. Mechanic says wiring harness needs to be replaced. Reasonable charge (labor only) for a non-shop affiliated mechanic to do this? At this point there are no codes except for 12 (battery was disconnected last 50 starts) and 55 (end test).
Problem occurs every time it is driven for the last year and a half, replaced Cam sensor, Crank sensor, fuel pump, PCM (2x) cat & 1 o2 sensor, bypassed one fuse in passenger compartment, purge can sol replaced, full clean on throttle body, IAC motor & solenoid, and that kajigger that returns the burnt fuel to somewhere. It will also stop when idling. Not stall, just plain STOP.
I keep refilling the coolant but after about a week it drops to nothing and the gage goes up to High, It last only about a week, I've had and engine overhaul already 3 months ago.
Who knows anything about this
I already replaced the battery
It will idle and dies after 10-15 min cause it's heated up... If I try to drive it doesn't even last 2 miles before it runs rough and dies
I have to pop start it or charge it if i pop start it i could turn it off and on fine for about 10 times then it dont start and my car only clicks as if starter aint working if i charge it and turn it on then off it wont turn back on unless i charge it again i already replaced starter and tested alternator my dash reads fuse but i tested all my fuses need help please
The timing chain was replaced 10 months ago problem seems to be after the battery took a dump. Has new batt now but runs like crap!
how to fix . My cam sensor keeps going out and have had to replace twice already and about to replace for the third time.
and didn't want to turn the wheel, My mechanic said it was the Drive Belt tensioner that burned the belt and broke off, he said the belts were like 19.00 and 19.50 but the Tensioner replacement part was $470.00 I believe this is way to much, not sure can you tell me what is the estimate for this belt tensioner part..... Just paid 2 months ago 1800.00 due to timing belt and Valves bent....It still turns on and all electrical works I didn't drive it pass when it happened just towed it...
timing belt and valves
I would like to know what I should be checking in order to fix the p0172 code bank 1 sensor 1 system lean on my 99 dodge neon, it idles kinda rough and sometimes shuts off coming to a stop
Why is my car shaking when sitting in drive? Why does my oil light come on when I stop my car?
Car will idle ok but bogs down on acceleration
