If you have a natural gas heater, make sure the gas is turned on. It won't work otherwise. I hope you warm up!

    Are you kidding me! The poor guy asked about an automobile and you answer the question asking if it is a natural gas heater! Did you have your head in the heater at your place, and the fumes got to you!!!1

If that is what the code is showing, change the sensor.
The sensor regulates the rich/lean fuel mixture, if it's bad, it can cause problems.

SOURCE: 1995 neon stalling intermitinly when deacelerating

Is it stalling at idle, or while driving? Have you performed a Throttle Body Service? The Tps usually wouldn't cause a stalling problem at idle, and it would generally throw a check engine light. The Idle air control valve, on the other hand, could be clogged full of carbon and not allowing any or enough airflow through to the enging. You should remove the throttle body, pull out the idle air control valve, and if it is dirty, clean thoroughly with any throttle body cleaner from a parts store.

How to replace throttle position sensor on a 2002 dodge neon?

I`m going to assume you know where the tps is, disconnect the wiring plug from the sensor, there are 2 screws(bolts) that hold the sensor to the throttle body, remove these and remove the sensor. install in reverse order, make sure you note the position of the sensor before you remove it and install in the same position. to verify correct install you will have to use a digital volt meter and check the voltage.

My 2000 dodge neon bucks when i put my foot on gas, when idoling, the motor seems to idol irratically, what can it be?

sounds to me like a bad throttle position sensor, these are generally located next to the throttle body & spares are readily available from most breakers yards, just a couple of screws & an electrical harness to undo then reverse the procedure on your vehicle at home.

2005 neon hard brakes engine races

While your car is running.......pop the hood and find the throttle body. The throttle body is where your air filter tube/hose goes to the engine. Locate the throttle position sensor which should be on the side of the metal throttle body. This should be the item causing this. If you grab the plug that is on the sensor and wiggle it while the car is running then the engine should rev and act up if thats the problem. If not let me know and I can direct you further. Thanks.

I have a 03 neon. it stalls when we start it up, but after 10m sec it turns over. i replaced the fuelpump, plugs and wires, cam and cranksensor.and im out of ideas

did you change the fuel filter at the same time as the could have a dirty throttle body that just needs to be don`t say if it will start after the initial stalling or if it will start with the throttle held slightly could even have a bad throttle position ever it should have set a code in the computer and set the check engine light on.

Why does my 2000 dodge neon violently **** when i'm in passing gear

If the car is not getting into passing gear at all, check the kickdown cable from the throttle body to the transmission, to see if it's broken or binding. Also check the throttle body itself for smooth operation.

If those are okay, then check the throttle position sensor for proper output voltage. That should have thrown error code 24 if it failed.

As you pointed out, your engine has a rev limiter to prevent engine overspeed. As you approach redline rpm's, it will cut the fuel supply. If this is happening at lower rpm's than it should, then the limiter itself could be in trouble.

I hope this helps.
