Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Safety recall I have a 2000 Dodge Neon. While driving on the highway a spark plug shot out of the engine for no apparent reason. Does anyone know if there was a safety recall on this. I now have engine trouble and am afraid to look at the motor for fear that a spark plug my shoot out and hit me in the face.

    I had to buy a part so that so that it could be drilled back in. The mechanic said that he has heard of quite a few of these incidences. I guess Chrysler is aware of it because the have another part so that it can be repaired

The 2000 dodge neon is only getting spark the 2nd and 4th

Could be the coil, or a crank or cam sensor.
The components would need to be tested.

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?

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

What causes sputtering in the engine of a dodge neon, does it need a tune-up, cause I keep up on the engine maintenance?

those neons are known for the coil pack on top of the valve cover to get cracked, if that is the case it will arc from the spark plug wires!!!
when it gets dark go out under the hood with a spray bottle full of water and while the engine is running spray a little water all around the coil pack and where the spark plug wires connect to the coil pack!
then while you are doing this, watch for any sparking/arcing you'll know it when you see it it will look like electricity kinda like a mini lightning bolt!!!
