Most chain auto parts stores will scan the codes free or loan you a scanner to use on site. Scan the code (even if the light has gone off, it maybe held in the memory) and see what it comes back with. Post the code number here or Google it

2000gc wont accelerate... Fuel filter??

Change the filter first and see if that helps, if not, have a fuel pressure test done.
Also check all the vacuum lines for bad hoses, all it takes is a pin hole in these damn emissions systems to screw up the whole system.

My daughter has a 2000 neon and when she pushes the gas peddle the car is not accelerating. Also the engine light comes on sometimes and then goes out..

check your throttle cable and if your unsure of where to loate it have someone press and depress the accelerator and you will see it move while looking under your hood make sure its secured in correctly and if it is follow the cable all the way back to the accelerator to make sure its not broken and its hooled up securly to the accelerator.
