SOURCE: I've replaced the cam oil seal on my 1998 Neon

When you put the seal in, you must pack grease inside the hollow around the inside of the seal. There is a small girdle spring in there that keeps tension on the seal lip. When you tap it in, this spring likes to pop out, the grease prevents this. Also, a good tool is required to prevent deforming the seal during the install.

98 plymouth neon runs fine cold but as soon as it gets warmed up about 20 to 30 miles it starts to bog down and sputters i changed both o2 sensors and the catalatic converter what else can it be

Randy:This is a shot in the dark as I don't know if you had a reader hooked up or not(most parts stores do it free)but it could be a cam sensor or crankshaft sensor.I have a 98 neon sohc that was doing the same thing,only after about 10 minutes or so.Good luck.
P.S. check the connections on them may get lucky.

On My EX-Wife's 1996 Plymouth Neon 2.0 SOHC, There's oil on the buisness end of the #3 Spark plug wire. Is this normal?

it sounds like the cam cover is leaking in to the spark plug hole to fix this you will need to replace the gasket ir remove the cover and re-seal it using a high temp sealent

if this helps let me know

New radiator for 96 plym neon is too large. old one was much smaller. 2L SOHC 16 valve engine, no AC, what gives? Are there 2 diff engines for 96 neon?

Yes there is 2 different engine, 2.0L SOHC, and 2.0L DOHC, but autoparts stores show a few different sizes available, with AC, and without, as well as cooling fan mounts location. Better take lots of measurements and head back to parts store. That's one good reason for taking old part in with you, when at all possible.

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see

It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
