Question about 2005 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Rough ride!! 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?

What is causing my 4wd to engage on its own when im going down the highway and how do i fix it


Sounds like you may have bumped something inside your 4wd relay setting or shifted the 4wd assembly. Either way it sounds like a trip to the transmission mechanic

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.

We have a 3.2 DiD Misubishi Pajero and I think the injector pump is playing up. The car has just started surge and run rough and then starts to smoke like to much diesel is getting into the motor white...


You generally only get white fuel smoke from a diesel when one or more cylinders aren't firing. If it were injecting more fuel than can be burned into a cylinder that is firing you'd get black smoke. You can get gray smoke from a cylinder that is firing cold or late, but blue obnoxious smoke is more common with late injector pump timing. Dirty/failed injectors also generally make a rude blue smoke.

Run a can of Diesel Kleen through it. If you can't get it where you are call a local truck service and ask what they recommend for cleaning the pump.

Check and keep watch on the oil and coolant- white smoke from a warmed up diesel is usually coolant that is getting into the combustion chamber, typically from a failed head gasket or cracked head/block.

If you see any oil floating on the surface of the coolant, or if the oil starts to look milky, this motor must be serviced and the issue found or it won't last long.

Riding rough sounds like shocks.. but I dont think gran am has shocks.. could it be the moter mount that would make it ride rough and when you turn the stering wheel back and forth while driving it sways.


All cars have shocks and/or struts. Grand am has front struts and either rear struts or shocks. When these are worn, the ride would be rough. If a motor mount was bad, you may feel rocking or visually see the motor wiggle back and forth when you press and release the accelerator pedal. Motor mounts won't affect handling. Either shocks/struts, sway bar, stabalizer bar or links are the common cause

We think it is the diesel injection pump but not sure


Sounds like not all the glow plugs are working.It should run fairly smooth on a cold start if all of the glow plugs are working..Also you shouldn't drive off on a cold start with a diesel,Its really hard on the motors..At least give them 10 to 15 min on a cold start..The oil in them is a really thick oil and when there drove on a cold start theres no oil lubricating the internal parts and will cause the motor to seize up..You may already no this and dont mean you drive it as soon as you start it i just wanted to let you know..When you get alot of white smoke it could be two things,Theres water in the fuel which will make it not have much power die and smoke..But if it runs fine when its warm theres some bad glow plugs...Hope this helps you and have a great day

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.

Poor mechanical transmission or engine acceleration rough


ASE Mechanic here:
Check engine for good tune up, may those spark plugs are fouled out beyond belief, its always best when changing motors to use known good parts....
