Question about 1996 Plymouth Neon

2 Answers

Engine Quits while running

I can be driving my 1996 plymouth neon and all of a sudden the car just quits. It acts like it is going to turn over but does not do it. If it sits for awhile we can get it going but then it eventually quits. Could this be a fuel filter problem or a fuse problem?

I had the same problem with my car. I would be driving it and it would just die on me. I didn't have to be at a stop for this to happen either. I took it to several mechanics before one of them finally pin pointed the problem. I changed the fuel filter, fuel pump, gas tank, spark plugs, along with other parts and nothing seemed to work. Then, by the grace of God, a mechanic solved the problem. It wound up being the crank censor which only cost me $240 all togather. It took almost a year for them to finally find such a cost friendly problem. You should have a mechanic take a look at that for you. Hope this helps!! Good luck!

I would check both but, im sure its the fuel filter. If you want to just take care of another issue that might come up in the later times, i would replace the fuel pump and filter and fuse. this is good preventive maintance.

    A bad fuel filter will eventually burn out the fuel pump.

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.

Replaced water pump and timing belt on my '95 Plymouth Neon with 154,000 miles. Starts right up (warm or cold) but has a very lumpy idle and dies when I stop at a traffic light. It starts right away...


Welcome to Fixya

You might need to have a good tune-up with your car. Did you notice the needle of the RPM going up and down? The normal idle RPM is 600 to 800.

Thank you for using Fixya!

1996 Plymouth Neon 2.0 installed new timeing belt and now car is only running on two cylinders, in cylinder two a missfire was detected and random multiple cylinder missfire


You have the timing belt off. If the engine computer sees the Crank sensor and the cam sensor don't line up, the engine computer will shut down two injectors. It sounds stupid, but trust me. I have seen this before.

Get those new codes, sure sounds like a MAF issue, also I have run across engine movement stalls, they turned out to be a break indside the engine harness, when the engine moved it would break the connection and stall or run really bad, I found these kinds of problems by pulling and twisting the harness to the engine, then I would cut it open and do the same thing wire by wire.
