Question about 1998 Plymouth Neon

2 Answers

I just purchased a plymouth Neon 1998. When i picked up the care i drove it out there long gravel drivway and on the way out the oil pan plug fell out allong with all the oil. I parked the car and found the plug but i cannot tell how it is to go back in. There is no screw catch and it seams to big. I may have to just go buy a manual for the car. I need to get it off the high way wondering if someone can post a sollution.

Some dumb mechanic or make believe mechanic stripped out the unit. Go and purchase yourself a rethreading tool, retread the pan, then purchase a new plug. Otherwise you will have to replace the oil pan. Which if purchased from a junk yard cost about the same. I would take the car backand have them replace the pan.

It could be. I would park it over a piece of cardboard the next time I drove it, and try to determine where the oil is coming from. This may save you some money on parts you don't need.

I need to change my oil pump on my 98 plymouth Neon and need the service manual to see how to do it exactly...Thank You.. Vince Farmer


Tough one, might be the pump, the relief valve or worn bearings. I'm thinking worn bearings after it ran out of oil but I've been wrong before. I found pumps on Ebay for about $60. I posted a picture and pointed out the relief valve location. You may want to take out the relief valve on yours before taking it all apart just to check/clean it. To change the pump you will have to remove the timing belt, then unbolt it from the front of the engine and front of the oil panf02d577.jpg

Oil pan gasket replacement


It shouldn't be hard on that car as the oil pan is exposed. Unplug the oil plug and drain the oil. Then unbolt the oil pan, clean off the old gasket and replace. Make sure you scrape both the pan and the block clean thoroughly and then bolt back up. Don't forgot to replug the drain plug.

Remove starter


You will need to remove the front motor mount by placing a hydraulic jack under the engine (but not on the oil pan), lifting the engine slightly. Remove the front motor mount, and lower the jack (and engine) which will allow you access to the last bolt and allow for ease of removal/installation of the starter.
