Question about 2006 Dodge Neon

1998 dodge neon problems

When accelerating or just revving the engine my car will, for lack of a better term, cut at anywhere between 2400 rpm n up. I've replaced the fuel pump plugs and cam sensor. My speedo tends to twitch or flat dramatically bounce horribly as well. what else could cause this? It dont throw a code when checked. Please help, I'm at the end of my rope. When it stalls or cuts its only for a sec but it wont go past the rpms its at. It'll get to say 2600 n then just drop for bout 2 secs then jump back up. if I hold the throttle it'll just keep bouncing from 2600. vroom, lag, vroom, lag, vroom, lag! Im lost. please. again I beg... HELP!!

YOU'RE GONNA HATE THIS BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A FUEL ISSUE. HOWEVER HERE'S THE CATCH.....THE FURL FILTER IS IN THE GAS TANK CONNECTED TO THE FUEL PUMP. YOU HAVE TO DROP THE TANK OR TAKE THE BED OFF TO GET TO IT. AND YOU CAN ONLY GET THE NEW FILTER AT THE DEALER. THE LOCAL PARTS STORE DOESN'T CARRY THESE. BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT NAPA, THEY MIGHT. YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO CHECK FOR A VAC. LEAK AROUND THE THROTTLE BODY. LASTLY WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID ANYTHING TO THE TRANS.? MIGHT WANT TO LOOK INTO THAT.

SOURCE: 2003 stratus cam sensor replaced still unresolved

you bypassed the wires that connect to the sensors? that would have been my first guess the harness that plugs into the sensor. after that i would check the ground connection from the ecm. wouldn't hurt to check the battery posts too. if the battery posts are oxidized you can have all kinds of goofy electrical problems. hope that helps.

SOURCE: 2003 dodge ram 1500 hemi 4x4, no power or throttle response!

I also have an '03 Ram 1500 with the Hemi, and I too noticed that the throttle system definitely sucks. The issue lies with Chrysler opting for speed density instead of mass air flow, which is what the Hemi should have. I landed an a chatroom that had a procedure to try to fix the throttle response. Simple procedure.
1. turn the Ram on, but don't start.
2. wait 7 -10 seconds for onboard diagnostics to cycle and finish.
3. press the accelerater to the floor, using moderate leg speed and then let up.
4. shut Ram off, wait 10 seconds.
5. start up

After using this procedure, my Ram finally accelerated like a Hemi Ram should. The chatroom said that for some reason, this won't work on every Hemi Ram, but since you don't hook up into the computer, it's worth a shot.
Best of luck!

My problem is reeving system in jeep grand. Cherokee its not reeving


Jeep grand cheerkee.
what year.?
which of 3 engines> or more>?

my guess is revving , means, (its good word)
means, car dont move?
the transmission slips? (engine RPM rises fast , but car does not accelerate in the same proportions)
or the RPM fail to rise, that means the engine Lacks power
those 2 are polar opposites.
engine problem
transmission slip. (flare)
2 paths to walk. do not guess. or it gets expensive fast.

Honda accord making a whining sound and loss of power


Ok I need some clarification here. Is it surging/chugging when accelerating? Is it having shifting issues? All the time? Or do you mean it misfires/cuts out at high rpm? (I assume you know there's a rev-limiter that will cut cylinders to keep engine from over-revving). What rpm does it cut out? Is it happening intermittently, or constantly? Also, is the car modified/raced and what condition is the engine/powertrain? Do you have mostly stock Honda tune-up parts in it? Honda's don't perform to their potential with cheap aftermarket plugs/wires/ etc. installed. Start with the basics here. Check the ignition system, fuel system/pressure, etc. Could be bad fuel too. Did you fill up at a small rural no-name station recently? Good luck.

My grang cherokee2002 us spec, while driving trnz changes fine but when cick down or full excelrate and RPM reaches 4.5 or 5 engine is loosing power and getting noisy and RPM not going more, while gear on...


You are hitting the rev limiter top range, which cuts off your ignition.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and the problem drives me crazy, but it is the way the car is designed- as soon as you hit the rev limit, it shuts down ignition and your jeep will "buck" - a real pain when you are trying to accelerate into traffic!

You have the 4.0L straight six engine, yes?

If so, please take my advice and learn to live with the minor annoyance of the rev limiter- that engine is IMHO the best Chrysler ever made (nearly "bulletproof"!) and it was so reliable you cannot even get it in a jeep now! For decades, that engine was used in welders, tractors, generators...and yes, jeeps... and it is a favorite among mechanics for its durability!

When turn on the car in the morning, i accelerate and the revolutions up to 6,000rpm normal. In 3 minute when the car up the motor temperature to the normal operation, i accelerate and the revolutions up...


To begin with, if you are revving a cold engine to 6000 RPM, you are asking for a blown engine. Most OBD vehicles are equipped with a rev limiter that will cut off fuel at 3000 to 4000 rpm to prevent you from over-revving your engine and blowing it up. If yours is revving to 6000 RPM cold, then the rev limiter, for some reason is not working while it is cold. I have no explaination for this. The best thing I can tell you is to stop revving your engine so high when it is cold unless you really want to see what an engine looks like after is has gone off like a grenade.

95 Neon jerks in low rpm acceleration. + loss of torque


Your idea of a clutch problem is correct. you will need to replace the clutch,pressure plate, throw out bearing and have the flywheel turned or replaced on car. Sorry to tell you this but it will have to be done to correct your problem. shop around to find a good quality clutch repair kit with all the parts that you will need. and remember in shopping that all companys have different warrantys on there products. hope this will help you.

2002 Buick LeSabre shows 3 trouble codes: p0404, p0410, AND P0300 .. Car lacks power... will operate pretty well between 1800 and 2400 RPM. Beyond 2400 RPM there is nothing, no response when accelerator...


P0300 is random engine misfiring. Could be several problems. My car had this and I replaced the plugs and plug wires. No change. Checked the three coil units. They seemed ok. I used a new on in each spot and nothing changed. Ended up being the ignition control module that sits under the coils. Relatively easy to change. Costs around $150 at the parts store. This may correct the other codes.

Why does my 2000 dodge neon violently **** when i'm in passing gear


If the car is not getting into passing gear at all, check the kickdown cable from the throttle body to the transmission, to see if it's broken or binding. Also check the throttle body itself for smooth operation.

If those are okay, then check the throttle position sensor for proper output voltage. That should have thrown error code 24 if it failed.

As you pointed out, your engine has a rev limiter to prevent engine overspeed. As you approach redline rpm's, it will cut the fuel supply. If this is happening at lower rpm's than it should, then the limiter itself could be in trouble.

I hope this helps.
