    it has a/c but the a/c stays off. the eletric fan thats on the radiator will turn on then turns right back off and does not cool the engine down when drivivg around town.

Fan motor may be drawing to many amps. see if it moves freely when not on, check for loose connections

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start

Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

sounds as if you have some bad cooling fan motors.need to make sure the power and ground are being supplied before condemning the fans. dodge vehicles are common for circuit problems for cooling fan control.

My 1997 dodge neon sohc is overheating while ideling but goes back to normal when running the fans are running even when ideling and there is anti freeze

So the car only overheats at idle? How many miles on the car? What fan are you referring to - the heater fan or the cooling fan for the radiator? It sounds like you may have a plugged up radiator. If the engine has high mileage the radiator may have accumulated enough junk over the years to become restricted. Some automotive technicians have a laser that they can use to check the radiator for cool spots, which would indicate internal blockage.

There are four bolts holding it on you might have to take your fans off, but generally it will fall right out.

If it just started doing that, check your radiator coolant level, if low, take off rad cap, start engine, turn heater on, and add coolant as needed, but leave cap off until rad cooling fan comes on & off 2 or 3 times at normal operating temperature before you put cap back on, to bleed out the air. When did it start & what have you had checked if anything?

heating and cooling fans are generally one and the same. changing freon doesn't always fix the problem... did you have the system pressure checked for leaks first.

Second determine if the vents are opening properly (switching from heat to cooling) basically when you change to cool it closes air access to the heater core.

if the cooling fans dont come on, it might need the fan relay replaced.
the relay is located on the frame rail right below the battery tray. the easiest way to accesss it is from underneath the car.
