Question about 1995 Dodge Neon
I just bought a 1995 Dodge Neon. It was in running condition 1 year ago when it was put in storage (where it sat for a year). Over that time they did go to start the car about once a month, and finally it wouldn't start.
It is turning over, but not all the way. The engine does sound good when it is starting.
I had a really nice mechanic come look at it briefly and he said:
* the new spark plugs are not giving a spark
* the locked gas cap had been pried off so there was no vacuum seal
* there is no smell of gas when we press on the gas to try and get it to start
* we put gas right into the carb but it still refused to start.
Your ECM is located on drivers fender up near battery . Remove battery cable first, then remove the ECM & all the connectors attached to it. Get some electrical contact spray & clean both ECM connector pins on it, and the connector itself, down in mating females. Re-install after cleaning, & remove it again a couple of times & re-install, just to help clean up the contacts. Then lets see what you get. While your under the hood, look real close at all the wiring harnesses for signs of mice chewing through anywhere. Hook your battery back up & see if you hear fuel pump "hum" for a few seconds with key just to on position.
