Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Fuel pump is working, plugs and wires changed and firing, everything seems to be working great. turns over but acts like its not getting fire or signal somewhere. thinking its the timing but did look up where it said the speed sensor would cause it not to crank. that's the only explanation I have for it just quitting without any warn ing.
I would check 2 things that would give you this issue. first and relatively easy to check would be the fuel pump relay. located out on the fender well driver side. they go bad and work sparattic causing an intermittent issue. second would be the throttle position sensor. they can get moisture build up and cause it to work weird. it should be located in the air box where the cable attaches to the throttle body small controller with a wire harness attached.

Did he physically check the timing? IE pulled the timing cover off? You need a good scan tool. See if it shows cam and crank sensors, and if they are in sync. If you are infact getting fuel and spark, it should run, but you are not getting one or the other.

The "wait to start" light is your glow plugs. You must have a loose connection to them or something not connecting. They come on almost everytime you start them, hot or cold.

Gas cap has no bearing,lol. Check the wiring under the battery tray. They're notorious for corroding through the wiring & cause a short to the ecm. This results in retarded timing & wierd stuff going on. Write back if you need more. Old car,lots to check.
