What is wrong with my dodge neon when back fires and no power going up hills

You have a bad coil, most likely. Check the catalytic converter also at a shop. Possibly bad spark wire(s). Last but not likely, a prob with the PCM .

2001 plymouth neon sputtering

If you have an automatic transmission, you may be experiencing torque converter clutch (TCC) lockup shudder. There is a solenoid in auto transmissions that engages a clutch in the torque converter to save gas on the highway. These frequently stick open and cause problems at stoplights. IF you have an auto, a pretty good way to check if this is the problem is to put the car in neutral at a stoplight (CAREFULLY) and see if the problem goes away. Also, the clutch should not engage until the vehicle is warmed up, so if your problem happens when your car is cold, this is probably not the issue. Sometimes, these solutions can be inexpensive. I fixed my own TCC solenoid on my 1993 Chevy for about $20. Other times it can get spendy.

Last year my 2003 neon stopped running and we had the timing chain replaced WE got 40 miles and the car stopped then wouldn't even turn over we changed a fuse and got it to run another 70 miles to limp...

I would say yes, if it wouldn't let the car run, then yes the wire may be frayed now, repair the wires first and eliminate that problem . then have the codes read,

My 2001 plymouth neon wants to cut off and the check engine light and oil pressure light comes on when I stop! When I take off it goes out why? This only happens when I stop. Otherwise it runs good! Its...

better have a shop check it out. If you have approx 90k miles on that car and the timing belt has not been replaced, replace it ASAP. if it breaks, the valves will be bent and th ecar will not be worth fixing. if it has been replaced before, then replace it at another 90k be sure to replace the water pump and tensioner at every timing belt replacement.

I have a mazda protege 2003 and my car stinks like rotten eggs when i put on the gas and on top of that, my engine light is blinking and my car shakes when i stop at a red light!

i have a 2003 mazda protege. this is the third time my check engine light has come on. the first time the car started to shake when i stopped at a light and the check engine light came on. i had a readout done and it said misfire. i took it to a garage and they changed my spark plugs and wires. 2 weeks later it came on again and my car started to shake whenever i stopped. readout said misfire. they fixed the coils. it has been 2 weeks since then and my car started shaking again whenever i stop and the light came on. what could possibly be wrong with it?

My low pressure oil light keeps coming on when i stop and i just got my oil changed. The oil is not low. What could be the problem?

That means LOW PRESSURE , not low in volume. Pressure is measured in PSI. The reason that your light comes on when you are at a stop is because your engine goes to idle at a stop and would normally have lower pressure. That doesn't mean you should get a low pressure light though.. I would have it checked by a pro right away as this could be your first warning before a serious problem.

Hopes this Helps,

Bucking feeling

have you tried changing your plugs and try cleaning your air filter because the jumping feeling sounds like it may be missfiring and this is what could cause this most of the time.
