Question about 1998 Plymouth Neon
I have a 98 neon with 2008 k miles on it. It all of a sudden started running rough, stalling sometime when I step on the clutch, I checked for a vacuum leak, found none. I checked the plugs and wires, they are good. I put 50k miles on this car since I bought it. I was ready to change the timing belt and this happened. The O2 sensors and all the other sensors I never replaced. Any suggestions?
If you have a check engine code on,scan it will point you at problem area,if notand if timing belt is pass due may be wearing out and jumped a few knotches,i would inspect it anyway

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold, other symptoms include stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
