    The only true way is a fuel pressure test.

Pull one of the spark plug boots from a spark plug, leaving the other end of the plug wire connected to the coil pack. Having someone else start the car, hold the boot end of the plug wire towards any metal piece near it and look for a blue spark jumping from it. Do you see this?

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.

Video of how to replace fuel pump on 1998 Dodge neon


I do not have a video but I am sure you can find one on YouTube. Fuel pump is dropped into the fuel take from above. You will have to drain the tank and unbolt the straps holding the tank up. Drop it down and the pump is pretty easy to get out and replace. The work is in getting the gas tank off.

My 2003 dodge neon sxt decided to just die on me the other day... I have lights and my battery is good but my car will not turn over nor will my fuel pump engage like it should when the key is turned. I...


Well it could be your fuel pump. That is most likely the first thing I would think of. Or it might just be your starter. Oh, since it won't even crank it will most likely be your starter. If its not that check your fuel pump.

1998 dodge neon fuel pump installation


you will have to take the vacuum canister mounted by the fuel tank loose lower the tank enough to let the pump clear the fender well, remove the big plastic nut from around the pump assembly, disconnect the fuel lines and unplug the assembly remove and replace. be sure to disconnect the battery because you could short the new one out when reconnecting the plug.

1998 dodge neon turns over but wont start


Cars need three things to start. Fuel, Air, and Spark. Chances are it's either missing fuel or spark. If you smell fuel when you turn the engine over the that means you dont have any spark. If this is the case check the distributor to see if it is functioning. If you don't smeel gas then it's probably not getting fuel. In this case, start of By checking all of your fuses to see if any are blown. Mainly the fuel pump fuse and relay. These are the cheapest to start with. If your fuses are good and relay is funtioning then check the fuel pump itself. Hope this helps you and good luck.
