Question about 2002 Dodge Neon
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.

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.

you might try and change the pcv valve, my car hand a similar problem in the summer and i never changed it. the pressure blew my cam seal and i was leaking oil like crazy. i dont know if it will fix it but they are cheap. i would give it a try.

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.
