Question about 2001 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2001 neon shuts off while driving. will not start at all.it turns over but does not sound as normally would. i have been researching on the web( getting code 0340 camshaft position circuit) and fingers are pointing at crankshaft position sensor...could this be and why would it just fail with no warning?

    thanx. i have already ordered timing belt and tensioner. i had thought belt had gone but was hoping it had not. i have priced a remanufactured head as well. i am hoping being an automatic trans might have saved head from damage but with this motor i doubt it.thanx again.

P0340 is camshaft position sensor fault code..if engine sounds funny turning over or faster than it used to be,sounds like you have a broken timing belt..if not,most likely sensor has failed..located on end of cylinder head near battery..small square sensor with4 mounting bolts,and a 3 wire connector..if your timing belt is broken,you more than likely have some engine damage due to valve to piston contact

i would suggest making sure you have proper level of coolant in it and maybe go with a lower temp thermostat like a 140 or 160 degree

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.

2001 dodge neon wont start and then the engine dies while driving


When this happens you should check to see if it has spark. The coils could be going bad or the main relay could be going bad if it has no spark. If it has spark then check for fuel pressure. If it doesnt have fuel pressure chances are that its the pump. I think those cars have a problem with pumps going out in them.
