Check the ignition module, and fuel pressure when the trouble is present. Those are the two things on Neons that cause this problem

My honda 680 runs great and then act like it starves for gas and dies couple of minutes later starts and runs great fir a little while help


Could be contaminents in fuelespecially if you have run the tank nearly dry. Either drain tank and flush fuel lines or keep tank topped up until the problem disapears as it should do if it is dirty fuel.

My 2002 Toyota Tacoma prerunner has trouble starting in the mornings and after it has been sitting for more that five hours. It just spins over and eventually starts, but I cannot put it in gear and go bc...


Hi,
If it has a petrol engine,pese check the ignition coil itself the connections to this and the distributor cap and the rotor arm,i wold personally sart with replacing the distributor cap.
But it is worth checking the ignition leads as well.

Have a 90 f-250 5.8 gas burner. sat in a warehouse for 2 years. new battery and gas. starts and idles great. run up rpms for 2 minutes and it starts choking out. let off fuel and goes back to idling...


Carburetta is fouled. Run fine on choke - rich mixture. As it warms up and choke pulls off, its starving for gas.
First try adding fuel system cleaner to the gas tank. Do NOT go overboard. No more than double the recommended mix ratio.
The alternative is to remove the carb, open the bowl and spray out the jets and venturi with carb cleaner.

Its possible you may help it by removing the air filter and spraying every orifice you find on top of the carb. With carb cleaner. Be very carefull not to flood, pool carb cleaner in intake as this is not healthy for engine either. You can do this with engine running, so as not to pool, but slowly is best, both in engine speed and volume of carb cleaner.

Engine light came on. RPMs slowed to idle and no throttle response. Possible problem?


Have you changed your fuel filter? When the filter becomes clogged, it will cause you to just idle. Your engine is being starved for fuel. If you shut it off for a couple of hours, and start it up again, it probably runs great for a few minutes. I'm not sure where you filter is, but I've had this happen to me before.

Volvo 240 dl 1987 .. fuel issue....driving down the road, car


Sounds like you need a fuel pump. There is an access panel in the floor of the car to get to the pump.

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...


Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.

Lose of power on acceleration like its starving


Sounds like there is a load of dirty fuel in that gas tank. Ran good for a while after changing fuel filter, then began to run poorly again. Remove fuel tank, drain and clean out, replace fuel filter AGAIN. That should cure it. Hope this helps

My 1989 prelude is skippingh and sputtering


I had a similar problem. it would run great when the motor was cold until it started warming up. and then when i'd give it gas to get speed up it would act like it was either starving for gas or getting too much. I first started at the fuel injectors, pulled out the fuel filter and dumped it out, gas looked dirty so i replaced fuel filter and it didn't fix the problem, i then checked the fuel pump but it was ok. next i pulled the fuel tank and when i pulled out the pickup tube the screen at the end was clogged and their was chunks floating in the tank. Cleaned it all really well and havent had that problem since. hope this helps you

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.
