2004 dodge neon hard time starting

I have a 2004 dodge neon, automatic.. most of the time car has a hard time starting and jus keeps cranking.. but sometimes it starts fine.. engine lights turns off and on when it pleases.. sometimes to get the car started after it's been cranking, i pump the brakes about 7times and it starts.. recently(twice), after i got the car started and drove a few yards it loses power (doesn't turn off), so i have to throw the car in park and gun the engine a little, and it works fine after that.. did the on,off,on,off,on thing and got a "51".. hear the fuel pump goin when i turn the car on.. hardly ever misses gear but it did a few (no more than 5times) times.. was told it was the fuel pump relay fuse.. jus wanted more opinions.. Thank You

Well it could be the pump itself going bad or a short in the wiring, possible clogged fuel filter. There is a valve what looks like a tier valve cap on the fuel rail if you can get you hands on a pressure gauge and hook it up, you should see the pressure increase and decrease, if it does not start looking elsewhere.

Have a 2004 dodge neon ,just quit running,getting gas,air,spark


Check for compression. Depending on odometer reading, it is possible that the timing belt may be broken or may have jumped time. Listen for a steady cranking sound when you crank over the engine, if the pitch of the sound changes you may be out of time or have a bent valve.

Car hesitates and sputters


It seems like you have a vacuum leak in a hose some where. Check under the hood for any rubber hoses that are dry-rotted, cracks, or sharp bends in any of them.

Transmission


You probably need to have linkages at transmission lubricated. There is one that controls throttle valve which tends to seize up on a regular basis. When it starts to seize, you will notice it staying in lower gear longer before it shifts up, and sometimes it will shift down hard when slowing down to stop.
