    Cycle key, on,off,on,off,on, and leave on, then count flashes of check engine light. It will always be 2 digits . For example: 3 flashes, then a pause, then 3 more flashes, is code 33. 2 flashes, pause, then 5 flashes is code 25. 5 flashes, pause, 5 more is code 55 which means end of trouble codes. let us know what you get.

I had a similier issue when I bought a used 95 Neon. Check your spark plug cables for worn surfaces. They like to rub the hood and the valve cover. When they wear down and heat up they discharge to the hood and v/c. This creates low voltage condition that causes the car to nearly die.

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.


Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

Shut down


try this.
Here is the common cause of surges, 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.

1995 neon stalling intermitinly when deacelerating


Is it stalling at idle, or while driving? Have you performed a Throttle Body Service? The Tps usually wouldn't cause a stalling problem at idle, and it would generally throw a check engine light. The Idle air control valve, on the other hand, could be clogged full of carbon and not allowing any or enough airflow through to the enging. You should remove the throttle body, pull out the idle air control valve, and if it is dirty, clean thoroughly with any throttle body cleaner from a parts store.
