Question about 1998 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

Car loses power while driving

While driving, my car seems to quit getting gas even though I am still depressing the accelerator. It just starts coasting but it doesn't turn off or choke up. It only last for a couple of seconds and then seems to run fine. This just started today and did it twice in only a few miles.

Hesitation when accelerating, then the car loses power while driving then i have trouble starting the car after losing power.

you may need to get your injectors cleaned the fuel filter being changed is good the coil is another good one or your fuel pump could be weak and isnt giving the proper psi of fuel to the injectors so id say clean the injectors first if thats not it the fuel pump

My 2000 VW Beetle idles really rough and loses

I had that problem for the longest time. I had to clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Very easy to get to. Go to any auto parts store and ask them for the MAFS Spray. If cleaning it doesn't work, you may need to replace the MAFS. Once again easy to replace. Make sure you put it back nice and tight.....

1997 s10 2 wheel drive truck. 4.3L v6 makes a loud noise as the car accelerates fast or under load. When running 55 I can release the gas pedal and the noise is not audible. I can put the truck in neutral...

Your noise sounds like it is power train related,If you have eliminated the engine,Since it doesn't make the noise while moving and in neutral.
It sounds like a universal joint in the drive shaft.Do you notice a vibration
along with the noise?
