Do the preliminary checks first ---oil /water levels and engine temperature . Run fault codes to find what sensor put the engine /transmission in limp mode to protect the units.

SOURCE: engine light on and car jerks when starting up and driving off.

their is a brain module that controls the fuel injection unit on this car ,before going out and spending tons of money take it to the dodge dealer in your area and let them run a diagnostic that they can plug into directly under the steering wheel , they can have an answer for you in minutes and if you don,t want to pay the high prices of the dealer then let the service tech show you which part is malfunctioning so you can identify it and see if it,s something you might be able to easily replace yourself ,always get a price from the service writer so you can shop around at local auto parts stores and possibly get the part for half of what the dealer costs, good luck ,sincerely Glenn

SOURCE: 04 dodge neon engine light came on and car

Actually, the best part is that the light is still on. Now, get the car to either a good shop or (any larger parts store who will read codes free)
The light being on shows that the problem is ongoing and therefore may be a bit easier to identify.Can I tell you what's wrong? No...anyone that does is guessing. Testing is vitally important.

get a scan tool to retrieve the dtc (diagnostic trouble code).
you will get a misfire code.
