my neon will die any time, usually after its already running, only once did it fail to start back up. it usually starts up, could be a couple minutes or half an hour. of course it wont do it when you want it to so cant find the problem, have check wires, fuses,timing belt,( only code that shows up says its one touth off, its not)

Your timing belt should be change every 60K. A loose belt can st this code. Your symptoms however sounds like an intermittent Crankshaft or Camshaft position sensor. Hard to diagnosis. A dealership can install a "Flight recorder" to see what happens when the vehicle stalls, however, it may be less expensive to replace the sensors. I would start with the Crank Position sensor. Both are relatively easy to change. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=99223&car_brand_names=Plymouth
After it randomly stalls, it starts right back up with no problem. Its been doing it once a day so far for the past 3...
code p0743; Torque clutch soleniod circuit open or sort; car some times stalls when first start up & cold. Trans seems to be ok, shifts smooth, no slips.
My 2000 plymouth Neon jerks while driving before the engine light comes on. Some times while standing at red light the car will stall.
