Question about 2004 Dodge Neon
A couple months ago i started having a problem, took it to the Mechanic and he said it was the starter, I thought cool $80+ labor and im on the road. About a week later same problem, thinking its possibly a bad starter i use the warranty and get a new one. a day later same problem but my idle is also higher than usual. Any ideas?

SOURCE: my dodge neon would not
take your car to auto zone... have them do a free electrical system load test to see if your charging system is o.k., also have them check your alternator to see if it is producing the proper amps. My buddies car did the same thing, we replaced the starter yesterday but it still has trouble starting and the battery has still got 12.5 volts when we test it... It turns out its his alternator... the voltage regulator fried and was sending 189 amps to the electrical system when its only supposed to send about 88 amps... that should point you in the right direction... good luck.

I had the same problem. I replaced the temp sensor and used a 2 pair of wires to test the fans. The fans were worked. The problem was the wire connection to the control module.

Once you have the new PCV valve locate the old one on your engine. It will sit on the middle of one of your valve covers (most likely passenger side) and will have a line that connects to the top of the valve. Simply pull the old one out and put the new one in snapping that line on the new one. Should only take about a minute to do. Hope this helps, let me know if it does.

I was having the same exact problem with my 2005 neon as well. The guy at Discount auto suggested the starter itself was the problem(cost approx $200). The car isn't old enough to be having a starter issue so I figured it was something more simplilar. My dad took a look and founf out it was the starter relay. It is located in the black fuse/relay box on the driver's side right next to the battery. I had to get a new relay at the dealership(cost $20) and my car starts perfectly. Hope this helps

Check the injectors. We have an 04 Diesel 3500 Dodge Ram and it would start, not start. Mind of its own. Turned out the #2 injector was blocked. Why? Because fuel filters that pass anything bigger than 5 microns will clog them and Dodge originally put something like 10 micron on them and I read of a lot of complaints. Think they went to 7 micron later, but I've read event that's too big. Gotta catch particles down to at least 5 microns. What's crappy is we had to pay $100 'deductible' for the warranty, and they didn't bother to put a smaller filter on nor change the other 5. Guess what? A few days later, and the truck just died on us, while in motion!!!
