Question about 2002 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Periodically won't run

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon RT for which I've now replaced the battery 2 times. it seems that everytime i let it sit w/o driving it for over 1 week, it will not start for me. i can still drive it if i rev up the engine and keep the rpm's up, as it's a manual car. otherwise it'll just die. everytime i bring it to the shop, it'll randomly start working either later that day or the following day. the dealership then usually says that they cannot reproduce the problem. the headlights still work as do the rest of the electronics when this happens.

any ideas?

Couple things First: Check your belt running to your alternator and the tensioning arm( needs to be really tight) If you have a muti meter check the output of your alternator and the voltage of the battery. Does it matter if the engine is hot or cold?

How to change the middle motor mount on a 2002 Dodge Neon rt


Changing the center motor mount is almost impossible to do with lifting the motor up from the can. I had a 2002 neon and I replaced the other mounts and left the center mount alone. The other new mounts seem to compensate for the bad one. I have been told that the motors are designed to shake a little.

Rough idle on 2002 Dodge Neon


Without trouble codes you are fishing in the dark. If the engine has a cylinder that is dead at idle from a fuel injector or ignition problem, it should have a code for a miss on that cylinder. A mechanical problem like a burned valve could cause the problem without setting a code. Have you checked compression on all 4 cylinders ? ?

Try a bigger battery or a battery charger.swap it to give enough power to start the engine. If that doesnt work than try checking the starter solenoid at your local auto store

Blinking Check Engine light


This is typically a sign of a "detrimental misfire". A blinking check engine light means DON'T DRIVE ME! You may want to have your coil pack checked, plugs replaced or gapped properly, or wires replaced. Would also have to do with the camshaft sensor causing your timing to be off.

Car won't start


I'd probably start with cleaning my connections at battery, & making sure my battery has a full charge. If not cured, maybe a new battery is required. If it will start with a jump, try running it for a couple of minutes with boosters on, and if all appears o.k. , change your battery.
