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.

99 neon: random misfire-error code 43-runs choppy-poor gas mileage

No Engine I know of has a 1,2,3,4, fitting I am sure you have the firing order connected wrong, plus your description point to the firing order as well. Cheers, Malcolm Campbell.

Engine runs rough after a few miles

Easy way to check plugs wires while driving, get 4 or 6 small neon lamps depending on how many cylinders,the neon lamps used in appliances to show they are on are good NOT LEDs.
Remove resistors from neon and connect one side of neon lamps together and earth to body, take other side of each lamp and solder long single telephonr wire and wind about 10 turns around each plug wire insulation a little way from plug leave end of this wire disconnected. make sure the end of wire does not earth anywhere on body leave unconnected. the high voltage going through plug wire will induce enough voltage to fire neon and show plug works if one neon does not flicker as plug fires it the bad one.
This will only show electrical misfire not injector problem.
The best time to do this test is at night neons will flicker bright at night. As a mechanic how to check injector and injector voltage.

The check engine light came on at 115,000+ miles, am i in trouble

NO!! all the light is telling you is that the on-board computer has seen one of its sensors out of range, could be as simple as the gas cap is loose, so don't panic. take the car to your local Auto Zone and they can pull the code from the computer system and give you an idea if it something you can take care of yourself, but if the check engine light is flashing than you have an engine miss fire and that you should take care of as soon as possible......HAVE FUN

2003 neon - when i shift it's "puttering" almost

who knows what your car needs. but if you have anywhere near 90k miles or if you know it has never been replaced. replace the timing belt, tensioner and water pump ASAP. If it breaks, the engine is trashed and a Neon isnt going to be worth a new engine.

My cars engine turns over, but it won't start.

You'll need to determine if it's getting fuel, & spark, if you know how to check it. Also try cycling key on, off, on, off, on, and leave on and count flashes from check engine light. Will always be 2 digit number. For example flash, short pause, flash would be code 11, flash,flash,flash, pause, flash flash, would be 32. After every 2 number set, it will pause a little longer then start again if more codes are present. Try this and write them down & get back to us. These are trouble codes to try & tell you whats wrong.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
