timing these new motors today are difficult, your timing may still be off. You'll need to get a timing gun. Also did you make sure that the motor was Top Dead Center(TDC).

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

Disconnecting the power to the car, or computer for any length of time will not reset the check engine light, or service needed lights. The memory for these lights is stored in non-volatile memory of the computer in the car.
In an OBDI or an OBDII system you must access the computer to reset these lights.
As a suggestion if you have a local autoparts store they sometimes have a �Loan a Tool� program where you can rent a cheap computer access tool (This is not an endorsement, but I know Autozone rents this tool for both systems).
If after resetting this light, it returns then you will need to correct the problem before it can be properly reset.
You must take the battery cables off for about 15 mins. Then connect cables again. Light should come on a few seconds when starting then cut off!
