Question about 2004 Dodge Neon

4 Answers

Where is the oil pump on a 2004 Dodge Neon?

My oil light comes on intermittently, usually only when I am stopped, but not all the time. I figured it's warning me my pump is about to go out. I want to replace this myself but I'm not sure where it is located.
Thanks.

    There's a little over 106,000 miles and it's the 2.0L SFI SOHC. Yes, I have not only checked the oil level but I changed the oil too. The light was coming on before I changed the oil. I've run an oil cleaner through to see if that would clean things up. The light still comes on occasionally when I am at a light or stopped. I figured I would change the oil pressure switch next.

    I have a 2003 Dodge Neon and my oil pressure light keeps coming on when I stop, but now it is coming on more frequently. Usually only stops when I'm accelerating. I've never heard of an oil cleaner. I might try that. Moneys tight, so my last choice is to change out the oil pump. Any more suggestions?

    Whoa ! lets not get too carried away here unless you have an urge to tinker & spend money. Not too often oil pump problem for this, unless there's something you haven't told us yet. What engine & how many miles/or KM. on it? You did check oil level right?

Oil light that comes on while in idle means the oil pump screen is clogged or damaged, cause low oil pressure to the engine. That part is only $30. It could be a bad oil pump though, if that is the case the pump can run you $100. Either way you need to get it fixed ASAP it can cause major damage to the engine in a very short period of time!

I have a 2003 dodge neon and everytime I stop at a red light my oil light comes on but as soon as I take off it goes off. Oil has changed a month ago, it's full and still clean. What could cause t


Your motor is getting Tired or your Oil Pump is going bad.

Dodge has a problem with their motors and their Oil Passages get GUNKED really bad. This is what you should do,...

A. Get 1.5 Quarts of Diesel Fuel and drive to where you have your Oil changed

B. Add the Diesel Fuel to the Oil and let it IDLE (don't Drive the car under operating conditions). Let it Idle for 15-20 minutes and then have your Oil Changed

C. Have them use 20W-50 Oil, this is going to raise your oil Pressure and the light will not come on anymore.

Reason... Metal parts are wearing and that is oil gets into the system to lube the bearings. Pump Screen may be clogged and this will dissolve the Carbon Build up.

Good :Luck

Driving home, 2003 Dodge neon starts to slow down, oil light has come on intermittedenly before, engine started to lose power, brakes locked up, and steering wheel locked up. Car had to be towed. Thanks.


lets hope its not a bad motor from lack of oil pressure, the loss of brakes and steering is due to the engine stopped running this is normal, but hte oil light coming on with the engine running is not good, you will need to see if the engine spins and trys to start, this will tell you a little bit, if it spins then it didnt lock up, and maybe its a fuelpump or timing belt that let go, you will have to do some testing ,check for fuel pressure and spark at the plugs,
