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...

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?

How can I tell if my 2001 dodge neon has a standard 4cyl. 2.0l SFI SOHC or a 4cyl. 2.0l SFI SOHC HO. So I need to know if the engine is a high output or not. How can I tell?

I have a 2000 dodge neon with a few bad injectors but I also have a 2001 neon that's been wrecked but the injectors seem to look fine. Will there be any harm in swapping the bad injectors out with the good injectors from the wrecked neon

Is there a way to tell if you need a fuel filter or a fuel pump by listening to the clicks?

The estimate given by Tuffy where I usually take my car for oil changes/other repairs, is $625.00 which includes $85.00 diagnostic fee. Is this a fair price? I am retired and live on a fixed income so, price is an issue. My car has only 69,000 actual miles and I keep normal maintenance up-to-date. The problem just started. My car wouldn't accelerate over 30mph. My husband was a mechanic until he passed so I know some things about cars. There were no other prior signs of problems. Thank you, Linda K Cooper

SXT. 199k miles. Transmission has been slipping badly when summer started. Also leaked really bad. We found out the gasket was gone, replaced that and the filter. Still was leaking but we got it to where it doesn't but it's still slipping really bad. Now we figure it's getting hot and overheating. Made the most sense since in the winter it was fine and when it's hot it's not. We put some of that transmission fix that's supposed to help cool it down but that didn't change it at all. I am at a loss and don't really want to replace the entire transmission.

And why does the steering wheel shake, there is also a humming noise coming from a rear wheel,is it the bearing ?

My car will not shift into any gear except when engine is off
How do I know for sure if it's the clutch and not the tranny

We have replaced: cam and crank shaft sensors, fuel pump, new battery and spark plugs and wires. It will stall at random also the check engine light comes on when hooked up to odbII reader it states random misfire on all 4 cylinders. I can drive when its 60 degrees or colder and it don't seem to stall, but once the weather warms up it gets more frequent. Usually when it stalls I will wait 10 to15 minutes and it usually starts back up

On hills i lose speed much quicker until the car loses enough speed that it is basically idling and i have to pull it over to the side. If i shut it off for a minute or two it will have full power for about the same amount of time. I had it hooked up to a computer and i got a lean code.

It has happened twice now. I'm driving and all of a sudden my car will begin to accelerate without me pressing the gas pedal. Second time it happened, my brake pedal would not let me press it down.. i almost hit someone but managed to pull the e brake and put the car in park. Mileage is 145,348 and my cruise control does not work. When the car is turned back on, the rpm redlines.

Gas not flowing through hose at top of motor

This car never had a problem never start a cut off. All of a sudden I go over railroad tracks pretty hard. Car cut off. Try to start back on, only dash lights light up, car does not make a sound. Any idea what I could check? Don't have access to testers. I'm very mechanically inclined, any suggestions would be helpful to check in this 2001 Dodge Neon. The alarm works perfectly, when I stick the key in the check engine light lights up.ignition and turn only dashboard lights work and I hear nothing. Car will not start. I have looked over wiring all looks ok. Anythings you think I can check please tell me. This is our only car and I need to get it working. Battery is brand new. When I turn the key in the ignition dash lights usually fires rite up. When I hit the railroad tracks I do remember a sound as if I hit it very hard, after that the car lost power.and won't start. Nor make a sound. But at night I set the alarm and it works properly like a charm. I really need to figure something out any suggestions, please.

my car is having issues when driving. we take care of our car but we seem to be having issues an cannot tell whether the motor oil is leaking or burning an how do we fix this and if its fixable an cost. we have a low income. we have this car for six months was in a wreck from previous owners. car does run and drive but not like it should.we changed the oil two months ago an again we checked the oil an it was bone dry

acts empty

transmission is in limp mode I replaced out put sensor and speeddormitor stop working so replaced the speedsemsor the tranny is limp mode and speedomitor is not working Thai you code po531 po 720 po700

Just replaced clutch cable, but won't go into gear

As long as I give it gas, the light stays off. As soon as I let off the accelerator, the light comes right back on. What causes this?

i replaced the fuel pump. there must be a short before the pump. but where? any ideas? i can follow the green wire with white tracer but not all the way to the pump. i turn key to on position & it always blows the 20 amp fuse. the wires all look good.
thank you

The check engine light doesn't come on saying there is a problem. It will also cut power while idling. There is no rhyme or reason as to when or why it keeps doing it. After it dies it wont restart for several minutes then does it again 30 seconds later.
