I don't think the 2 things are related what so ever, since one is mechanical and the other is electrical. The only thing that comes to mind is the mechanic who did your clutch repair may have ( and rightly so) disconnected your battery during the clutch replacement since he would have had to remove the starter. Your battery light could have come on for many reasons. To name a few most likely are the battery just expired, it went bad. You may have a loose fanbelt, you could have a loose wire, including but not limited to the starter. Your voltage regulator may have went bad. Electrical problems at time can be the worse. Especially trying to diagnois from afar. The good news is that with the proper equipment they are relative easy to diagnois and if not replacing the car's computer are usually inexpensive to repair. I would start by going to your local auto shop like walmart,goodyear, a dodge dealer,or the guy who replaced your clutch, and having the battery checked out.
Good luck, be sure to let me know how it turnes out.

Could I replace a blown 97 Dodge Intrepid engine for one that works, but is year 94?


That is possible but the computer system in the '97 is much different than the '94. So there will be allot (large list) of parts to change over from the old engine to the new one. A '96 engine would be more compatible than a '94 but still some differences.

My 1997 dodge neon sohc auto check engine light is on with engine code p1491(open or shorted condition dectected in the radiator fan relay circuit) fan runs all the time with key on or off. replaced fan...


First, the easy way is to just bypass the relays all together. Install a switch on the inside of the car like you would fog lights. This will solve the problem of replacing thing after thing and wasting money. Just a $7.00 fix. After doing that unplug all the sensors and then the battery for at least 60 second to reset the computer. Than restart the car and the check engine light should go out, may take a day or so. Same thing with your gas cap, re-securing it will take a day or so for the light to go out. Good luck. I love my '97 neon.

2004 dodge neon has high rpms and no speed


ok i just replaced mine to but you have to make sure that you replace the throwout bearing(correctly)
if this does not happen it is like the clutch is engaged partially all the time and another thing is that make sure no oil is in the clutch pack. i replaced my main engine seal while i had it apart because it was tossing oil into the clutch area.

Good Luck

97 neon oil leak


Solution: Maybe.

Rear main seal is probably the problem.

My 1997 Dodge Neon has this same problem. My father-in-law (who used to be a mechanic) checked the car for me and found the rear main seal needs replacing.
