Question about 2003 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2003 Dodge Neon Sxt standard transmission runs great but recently has started suddenly trying to die. I will be cruising in 5th gear and feel a sudden jolt and look down to see my gauges all fall to 0 before returning to where they were and I'm cruising again. Sometimes this will happen when I am in neutral and the car will die but starts back up no problem and runs fine. It doesn't happen often but it seems to be progressing. It almost seems like some kind of electrical short to me. The check engine light has been on for years for a bad gas cap but the cap isn't bad. I unplug the battery every year to shut the check engine light off and pass inspection. The reason why I think it is some sort of electrical short is after it tries to die the check engine light shuts off as if the battery was disconnected.

I have a Standard Transmission 2005 Dodge Neon SXT. It is revving really high to get up to speed in each gear? Had the timing belt replaced so thats brand new and it still is happening??


2 things come to mind. Are you 100% sure you don't have an emergency brake or any other brake sticking, even partially? 2nd thing would be Catalytic converter may be partially plugged. That is assuming a tune-up, filters etc have been done .

My 2003 dodge neon sxt with a manual transmission will not shift into Reverse


is it grinding when you try? try to turn car off hold in clutch put into reverse and then start car

if it was the neutral safety switch it more than likely wouldn`t start at all or start when without pushing on the clutch.it sounds more like the linkage could be damaged(think these are cable) or its out of adjustment and needs adjusting.does it feel like its going into gear(like it does when working) but not engaging if so it could be a problem with the transmission.first have the linkage checked out.

Well it could be your fuel pump. That is most likely the first thing I would think of. Or it might just be your starter. Oh, since it won't even crank it will most likely be your starter. If its not that check your fuel pump.
