Question about 1998 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

I have not started my car in two months and it has been very cold. I only have a 1/4 tank of gas or less in my car. I just got home went to start it and it turns over started for a couple minutes then shut off. Then when I go to restart it it starts for a second and powers off or if I hit the gas it powers off. I have a 2006 chevy malibu is it possible that the gas line or fuel injector is frozen? Is there a way to fix this?

If I have less than 1/4 tank of gas my yukon won't start.


I had the same problem. I had a few different mechanics tell me that the fuel pump is starting to go out when it does that. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, and the gasoline keeps the pump cool and lubricated. When the fuel tank is less than a 1/4 full, the pump is not submerged anymore, and can have trouble sending gas to the engine. My emergency fix was to get underneath the car on the driver's side and bang on the gas tank about three times. It will start up, and will run great unless you turn your engine off. But eventually you're going to need a new fuel pump. Once I replaced it, the problem went away.

Car turns over but won't start


one thing you need to remember.... as it gets colder (that's not cold yet) the battery gets less efficient as the demand for more power increases with the starter. were you able to start it by boosting it.... also what weight motor oil is in it. 30 to 50 weight oil turns to the consistency of molasses in cold weather.

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
