1997 Dodge neon, doesn't want to start

'97 Dodge neon. check engine light cam on while I was driving home. Made it home with no problems and shut off the car, when I tried restarting it the car started but was acting almost like it was out of gas. (I have 1/2 tank in it) Tried starting it again and it started "chugging" and stalled. Then it quit starting altogether, it still rolled over but won't start. Any ideas?

No power at all, no power windows no radio just dead? can not jump start, just died while driving? 97 dodge neon


check your battery connections. the wires should be tight around the battery terminals. also check your ground by following the wire from the negative battery terminal to wherever it is bolted to the engine block and checking the connection. i am sure this is just a loose connection.

97 neon oil leak


Solution: Maybe.

Rear main seal is probably the problem.

My 1997 Dodge Neon has this same problem. My father-in-law (who used to be a mechanic) checked the car for me and found the rear main seal needs replacing.
