Question about 2005 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Rough noise when i start the car, it sounds like a diesel only from the inside, you cant here it from the outside, and it drives rough. The motor jumps when i shift it from gear to gear, I had several mechanics look at it, one changed the motor mounts but that wasnt the problem but when i went back to him, he said one of the mounts were busted again...Whats the problem?

Truck creaks/goans as I go over rough road or pull into my parking spot... I have taken it in and no one knows what it is, they have fixed bushings, but nope, that wasn't it... Feels like it is belo


Check your ball-joints. There are pros and cons to guessing different components. What I visualize is that you have low motion noise{slow approach to parking spot) and noise going over rough roads(no clutch, no braking).

There was a recall on some gas tank straps, which a rough road could reveal, but it would not affect going into a parking spot. Check rear leaf springs for cracked leafs. The truck body settles when parking and driving motion could make broken leaf spring chirp.

Check motor mounts. The exhaust pipes and joints in what is called the "donut" can chirp if the tailpipes are rigid and the engine moves on bad mounts. The donut becomes the only flexible connection in the exhaust system.

Rough idiling, stalls when putting in2 drive, sluggish,


Sounds like a misfire or a bad valve. If this isn't what your looking for please let me know. The more information and details, the better. The vehicles maintenance history, "Engine Light" status (on or off), what tests you have run, and anything that you have noticed. Rough idle issues can be caused by more than one type of failure. Examples: clogged fuel or air filter, stuck/damaged EGR valve, restriction inside exhaust, spark plugs, timing, or low fuel pressure. There are more examples but it would be better if you could tell me more. Good luck.

There does not have to be a visible hole for these symptoms to occur. You probably do need a new muffler. The rough idle sould subside when the new muffler is installed.

System Too Lean (Bank2)


I had an issue like this. The Zetec engine sounded like an old Diesel, ran rough, and had little power.
One of the hoses to the intake had come off. I don't know if it was a vacuum hose, or a PCV hose, but once I reconnected it, the engine ran the way it should.

My toyota camry has a noise like a diesel truck ever since i hit a curb it sounds like a diesel truck engine is it dangerous to drive it like that what can it be do i stop driving it


If your not to mechanically inclined i would take it to a mechanic and have them check it you may have knocked it out of time and that would make it run very rough and also cause damage to the engine.

2001 Nissan Maxima- runs rough, stalls when idle


Timing belt could have skipped a tooth.

Horrible vacuum leak could have started. Listen for suction noises when you raise the hood.

Someone could have poured sugar in your tank.

You could have put diesel in your tank instead of gas.

Could be a bad MAP sensor, TPS sensor, etc.

Need more details to be precise.
