Question about 1997 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

97 Dodge neon turns over but doesn't start

My car has had a lot of trouble starting this winter, I had to rev it to start and it would often die at intersections when I didn't keep the RPMs up. Now she won't even start. The battery is good and the car turns over well, but she won't fire up. I don't know if this is related, but my car also loses power steering and has for some time. Is there any obvious solutions or things I can check?

SOURCE: I had to rev it to start and it would often die at intersections

The noisy power steering comes from to less or dirty power steering oil.
So please, replace that oil, and clean the reservoir and filter ( mostly IN the reservoir ).
**** the oil out of the reservoir. Turn the steering from left to right and back, and re-empty the reservoir. So on till most of the oil gets out.
Then clean up reservoir and all possible parts.
Refill reservoir. Turn steering totally left and right again. Refill reservoir if necessary. Go on till no air bubbles comes up in the reservoir. Top up oil to level.
Give it a try!

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start


Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

97 dodge neon will not start, once in a while


Do you have sufficient power to the vehicle? Do the lights work and radio? If not your battery is low, if yes than your starter solenoid may have failed. Since there is absolutely nothing, I take it you hear no cranking or igniting. correct?

1998 Dodge Neon engine died when valves started knocking and car will not restart.


Check the engine for compression. Your head gasket may be shot. I have a 97 that had a similar problem, and we did the head gasket, car runs fine now. Prior to doing the gasket mine wouldn't start at all.

Do a compression test.

I have a 96' Dodge Neon, and my car wont start


Try looking to see if your injectors are clogged or if fuel is getting to the fuel rail. You can take the hose that is on the fuel rail off then try starting it or just pump the gas pedal and you should see gas coming out. I had a similar problem with my 97 neon and this was my problem just try and see, you never know.
