Check to see if the hoses are collapsing or pinched, or the radiator needs to be flushed. could be the thermostat even though you said its not. sometimes when you get a new one, its still a bad one

My neon keeps running hot,the oil light comes on and the valves are tapping;i changed the oil but the same thing keeps occuring.


for the overheating problem, make sure you radiator is not obstructed, then check and make sure the thermostat is opening, this can be done by taking the thermostat out and drying it off and take a lit cigarette lighter and hold very close to thermostat, if it doesn't open, change it. For the valves, try dumping some lucas oil treatment in it and let it run for a while and drive it, usually works for me. Hope this helps.

Overheating cant feel water passing through upper hose on radiator


Wait for th engine to cool off then remove th radiator cap and let the engine run until it shows signs of getting hot. If you can't see the coolant flowing in the radiator then the thermostat is not opening or there is no coolant in the radiator. Make sure the radiator is full. If that doesn't help then replace the thermostat.

2001 plymouth neon heater won't blow hot air. only cold. we have changed thermostat, radiator cap and flushed radiator. not odor through vents or leaks on floor board(heater core)


There is a problem with your climate control. It is not allowing the vent to open that allows air to pass through the radiator.

New radiator for 96 plym neon is too large. old one was much smaller. 2L SOHC 16 valve engine, no AC, what gives? Are there 2 diff engines for 96 neon?


Yes there is 2 different engine, 2.0L SOHC, and 2.0L DOHC, but autoparts stores show a few different sizes available, with AC, and without, as well as cooling fan mounts location. Better take lots of measurements and head back to parts store. That's one good reason for taking old part in with you, when at all possible.

I have a 98 plymouth neon (DHOC) that runs hot.


Take rad cap off when cool & run it for a while with the heater on (not defrost) and top up coolant as needed in rad, about an inch or 2 from top of rad. Let it run until you see rad fan come on & off about 2 or 3 times at operating temperature. Then replace cap, top up return bottle to proper level, and try that. Probably still air in system. If that doesn't cure it, I'd look at faulty or incorrectly installed thermostat, which would be a trip to shop that installed it, if it were me.
