Car does nothing at all when you try to turn it over.it has a brand new starter and timing belt.when i turn the key all the lights come on except the oil light i was wondering if it could be the oil pressure sensor.i have a new one but i can't get the old one out.would that shut down the engine?

I also have a 2002 neon and a few mo.s ago it shut down. A mechanic told me it might be the fuel pump. He suggested taking off the breather cover and take out air filter and spray starting fluid toward the intake. Sure enuf it started. The next day I towed the car to the mechanic and brought a new pump and later was good to go.

SOURCE: 97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

Check your engine wiring harness for a short or a broken wire. It has a black cover on it. Pull up slightly on the harness at the right side of the valve cover. There is a bracket that is bolted to the cylinder head in this area. You might have to **** on it, but do so with caution. Start the car & let it idle. Start pulling up on the harness as I described. If you pull too hard, you may disconnect a sensor by accident. If the harness has a short in it, the car should die like when you were driving it. If the car hasn't started since that day, the crankshaft position sensor may be bad.

I had the same problem with my '05 Stratus SXT 2.4 DOHC. I've replaced the cam pos sensor and it seems to be running fine right now. On the Dodge forums a lot of the guys say that you need to replace the crank pos sensor too. I've bought one of those just in case it comes back again. Hope this helps.

Bar the engine over to make sure the engine spins over. If the engine is fine then move to the fuse-box. A blown fuse or defective starter relay could cause your "no start". Also check the battery cables that couple to the fuse-box. Then move on to the battery, cable connections, and the starter. Make sure that the battery passes a load test. You need either a load tester or a multimeter to confirm. A bad battery or a loose or corroded connection can allow the lights to turn on but would ark out is the engine was cranked. Let me know how you do with this information and let me know what else you need, good luck.

There are usually three things that cause this problem. Either 1. your car is intermittenly having the power supply to the ignition interrupted, i.e., loose battery cable or ground, or ignition module, etc 2. your alternator is failing intermittenly, or 3. Your fuel pump is going out. The most common is the fuel pump, especially with your symptoms. The way you test, is, when it won't start, shoot a little fuel into the throttle body, and see if it hits and dies, or hits and keeps going, etc. These things are notoriously intermittent, and of course, you can only troubleshoot something when it's currently not working. As for the alternator, you'll usually have some other warning sign, such as a battery light, or failure of instruments, etc. As for the ignition module, it's more of a remote chance that I included as an option. Hope this helps you out.
