Question about 1997 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Rough idle and sluggish take-offs

I have a 97 Neon, 2.0 SOHC. I haven't had a check engine light come on. I checked the codes and got a 12 and 55. What does that tell me and where can I find a list of codes?

You should check the fuel pressure and, if there is a check engine light, get the vehicle scanned for codes. The fuel pressure should run about 50 to 60 PSI when running and should hold pressure after the engine is off for a period of time.

We just purchased a 2002 Ford Escort. Tonight, when starting the car, it ran very rough and then died. We started it again and it ran fine after that. It has happened twice and it has only happened when...


Could be a idle air problem. The injector could be leaking when you shut it off ..Try some injector cleaner see if it gets better..The idle air shouldnt run rough just idle real low or sometimes it will get stuck and idle high....Are you losing any antifreeze..If you are the 2.0 SOHC engine bad about leaking antifreeze into the cylinder and makes the engine run rough until it burns it out..See if you can see the smoke coming out when it happens..White smoke indicates antifreeze,,Black smoke indicates fuel..

2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from smooth to rough also sputters and sluggish while driving check engine light is flashing.


have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!

Rough idle when warm and in gear, idle pulses slightly every now and then, check engine light is on


It sounds like the timing belt is off a tooth. Did you have it scanned to see what code was in the computer? These engines will surge when the cam timing is off.

My 1997 dodge neon sohc auto check engine light is on with engine code p1491(open or shorted condition dectected in the radiator fan relay circuit) fan runs all the time with key on or off. replaced fan...


First, the easy way is to just bypass the relays all together. Install a switch on the inside of the car like you would fog lights. This will solve the problem of replacing thing after thing and wasting money. Just a $7.00 fix. After doing that unplug all the sensors and then the battery for at least 60 second to reset the computer. Than restart the car and the check engine light should go out, may take a day or so. Same thing with your gas cap, re-securing it will take a day or so for the light to go out. Good luck. I love my '97 neon.
