    No it hesitates when accelerating. It's like a vaccine line isn't hooked up but I know they all are. What should I look for?

    How did you check timing? Hesitation can be from air supply -check air filter, fuel-check fuel filter, have fuel pressure checked, ignition-old or worn spark plugs with gaps too wide. Other things possible, but it is often a fuel related problem.

98 plymouth neon runs fine cold but as soon as it gets warmed up about 20 to 30 miles it starts to bog down and sputters i changed both o2 sensors and the catalatic converter what else can it be

Randy:This is a shot in the dark as I don't know if you had a reader hooked up or not(most parts stores do it free)but it could be a cam sensor or crankshaft sensor.I have a 98 neon sohc that was doing the same thing,only after about 10 minutes or so.Good luck.
P.S. check the connections on them may get lucky.

I have a 98 dodge neon and when u start it up it will run for about 15 mins and quit let it set for about 5 mins and will start back up run about 15 mins and quit .

Check the wires going to the coil and make sure they are snug. Check plugs and wires. Not sure if this car has an Ignition control module but if it does it could be the problem.

Setting the timing on a 1999 plymouth neon

The best way for you to do this is to go to a autostore and buy the repair manual for a 95-99 dodge/plymouth neon. That will help you better, because you have to pull apart the front of the motor (passanger side). Its not as hard as it sounds. 90% chance your engine is a sohc. If needed i can give you the complete directions for doing this but easer for you to see it in the book.
hope this helps
