Question about 1998 Dodge Neon

98 dodge neon won't start

Driving car today - it's an automatic - stalled out while at a light and won't start. It turns over and tries to start - all the lights and radio come on like they should but it just won't start. We checked the coil pack and found that there wasn't any resistance coming from it, so I bought and new one and replaced it but the car still won't start. Just before it stalled the oil light flashed but the oil level is fine - it was changed about 1000 miles ago and I have it changed every 3000 like clockwork. Also, though it is 11 years old the car has less than 69,000 on it so that shouldn't be an issue. I really just want to get this fixed - any help you could provide would be fantastic!!

    Spark. My dad spent most of the afternoon working on it and looking at the haynes manuel (he's a mechanic) and narrowed it down to coil pack, camshaft sensor, or crankshaft sensor. but then after some further research and stop by the parts store he figured it was the coil pack but then it didn't start after we replaced it. He checked the fuel pump and it all seems to be working fine

    Have you determined whether it's spark or fuel problem yet?

Yup, might be smart to pull cover at least & have a look at marks.

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.

2001 dodge neon leaking water from water pump i was driving n it felt like my car went into neutral n engine lite came on n it died it will turn over but won't start what do i check


well to me it seems like you have either a intake manifold leaking or head gasket leaking also which is causing coolant to go into motor.check the oil and see if it looks milky or overfull.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
