    I know this may sound silly but, the gas cap can cause this too.
    The vent gets clogged or lets too much air in and that causes sputtering and or vaporlock.
    It's a cheap trial and a good suggestion for a very possible solution.

When you drive it for a while does the temperature gauge seem to be pretty high or no?

    ok well i had a similar problem in a cadillac i worked on. Do you have the factory stereo in there or is aftermarket?

  • steven teran Nov 22, 2010

    this is exactly the same problem i have with my 98 dodge neon, i have replaced the ignition coil, new spark plugs w/ correct gaps, new wires as well. drives for about 40-45 min then just turns off and won't want tot start up again, i let it rest for a while an d it turns back on, but then dies again after engine warms up to normal operating mode

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

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.
