Question about 2000 Dodge Neon
My 2000 dodge neon violently pulls back (like if something was pulling in the opposite direction)when I accelerate (trying to pass a vehicle)but when I drive at a normal accelerations it does fine it's an automatic.
If the car is not getting into passing gear at all, check the kickdown cable from the throttle body to the transmission, to see if it's broken or binding. Also check the throttle body itself for smooth operation.
If those are okay, then check the throttle position sensor for proper output voltage. That should have thrown error code 24 if it failed.
As you pointed out, your engine has a rev limiter to prevent engine overspeed. As you approach redline rpm's, it will cut the fuel supply. If this is happening at lower rpm's than it should, then the limiter itself could be in trouble.
I hope this helps.
