What cause my 2000 dodge neon to stop on me and now it wont even turn over. and all of the spark plugs is cover in oil?

it is possible that your neg battery terminal could be losing contact or coil could have stopped working and im sure the oil on the spark plugs has a bit to do with the running issue . You need to change the valve cover gasket make sure nothing is cracked clean up the valve cover and engine side surface install valve cover gaskets and bolts torque em down and see what happens youll probably have to replace the spark plugs or clean them up real good

What is cost to replace valve cover gasket on 2002 dodge neon?

To replace the valve cover gasket shouldn't be that expensive. Although those cars are known for blown head gaskets, so I would have them look carefully at the back of the engine for an oil leak. If it is leaking oil out of the head, it is only a matter of time before the head gasket will be pushing anti-freeze. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

My 2001 plymouth neon wants to cut off and the check engine light and oil pressure light comes on when I stop! When I take off it goes out why? This only happens when I stop. Otherwise it runs good! Its...

better have a shop check it out. If you have approx 90k miles on that car and the timing belt has not been replaced, replace it ASAP. if it breaks, the valves will be bent and th ecar will not be worth fixing. if it has been replaced before, then replace it at another 90k be sure to replace the water pump and tensioner at every timing belt replacement.

How do you replace the oil pan in a 2001 plymoth neon

Its very simple actually! First drain the oil and take off the filter as if you were going to do an oil change. Then jack up the car in the front on both sides of the wheels.Use jack stands if you have them when you get the car up to support it good cause you might be under there for a few minutes. You may have to scrap some of the oil off to see the pan bolts. They should be a 7/16 inch or a 10mm.Undo all the bolts around the pan and remove.Now reinstallation is reverse but remember to clean the block of the engine with a scaraper to ensure a good seal when you replace the pan and gasket. Check the new pan for surface cleaness,cover the entire edge of the pan with gasket sealer,put gasket on pan and replace.the two end cap gaskets are the same.

2001 plymouth neon oil light keeps blinling on and off

You have an oil leak. From where is the question. On most Dodge products, the oil pressure sensor is behind the oil filter. Petroleum products are solvents, however mild. This affects gaskets, wires, hoses, you name it. Have someone check the wires on the oil pressure sensor. Also see if it is screwed in tight. Neons are buzzy little engines and tend to have minor stuff wiggle loose from time to time. There is the possibility of having a "Double Gasket" on the oil filter which would cause the oil to leak and pressure to drop at lower RPMs. If all of that checks out, then you might need a new oil pump.

Fouled plugs. all four swimming in oil. car running terrible

The plugs sit down in the hole in the valve cover as you have already seen and the o-rings on the valvcover need replacement. Just remove the cover and install new gasket and the o-ring and you should be good to go. Remove the right side air tube and left pcv hose, remove the ignition coil and remove the plug wires from spark plugs. Once the seals and gasket are installed, tighten the valve cover bolt to 105 inch pounds.
