Make sure your not getting oil down into the holes where plugs go this can mess with the wires.Is it actually skipping?

I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5/9 in it I put plug wires on it and now it's popping and it lost power and it had a code po302 and Po 307


The P0302 code means that the cylinder 2 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks and if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 2. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done. PO307 is the same thing except number 7 cylinder. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/loss of power
- Hard start
- Engine hesitation

2000 dodge neon misses all the time no power or acceleration


The spark plug wires might be bad, Are the coil packs a wires together in one? With the engine off, loosen each plug wire so as to when you start it you can not have to battle with it First do this with dry floor, rubber sole shoos and a pare of rubber or vinyl gloves. As its running pull 1 plug wire off at a time. When you get to a plug that doesn't change the sound of the motor you've found your miss. Did the CK engine light come on?

I am having issues with my 2004 dodge neon missing at idle spped and low rpm. Is there a simple solution to look for. No check engine lights are coming on so I am unable to check any codes.


Be careful, when its running, slowly pull each spark plug wire up, if you see sparking coming out of the side of the spark plug boot, replace the wires and spark plugs. Use the correct Champion Spark Plugs.

2000 Neon started missing but when I drive it fast it runs better, and the check engine light is on. Also, I changed the spark plugs but 1 spark plug has oil on it. What do you think it is?


you need to check the check engine light first. then the miss can be from the oil on the spark plug i would replace that spark plug with oil on it and replace the valve cover gaskets this will prevent the problem from happening again

My 2002 dodge neon is missing but i don't think it is the spark plugs, could it be it needs a new fuel filter? The engine light doesnt come on when it misses.


For some reason neons require Champion brand plugs,like the one's from the factory. Also check the plug wires. If it's also got a nasty oil leak on the driver's side the cam sensor is probablt the culprit,causing the misfire.

My neon starts good,but miss-fire when hot.i already changed the fuelpump.it is loosing its power totaly


Check the spark plugs and wires. Look at the plugs to see if there is a black line vertical on the ceramic part. That would indicate a faulty plug wire, a common problem of the 2.0 litre engine in the Neon and PT Cruiser.
