You may have sprayed water on the distributor the coil or coil pack and have mositure in the ingtion system, if ti has a cap remove it and dry it out with paper towels let it stay open to dry througly, if it di not have the problem before you started then thats what may have happened.

Just changed the water pump on a 2005 dodge neon and now it wont start. What could it be


You're not giving much to go on. Is it a 2.0L or a 2.4L?
You say it won't start. Does it turn over and not fire, or does it just sit there and do nothing when you turn the key?

Both engines require you to remove the timing belt in order to change the water pump. The 2.0L is definitely an interference engine, and I'm not sure about the 2.4L. But if the timing belt was not re-installed properly, it will result in a no-start condition since the valves will not be in sync with the pistons and spark. Best case scenario you correct the issue and are good to go. Worst case scenario is that if the belt is out too far, you bent valves and have to service the head(s).

PT Cruer will turn over but wont fire. Have changed the Cranks Shaft sensor, Cam Shaft sensor, TIming belt and Water pump.


try resetting the CPU program because periods with the battery disconnected corrupts the program which has the immobiliser program in it as well. Use a scanner for this job as removing and re fitting the cable only does half a job and probably will not fix the area that is needed.

2002 Honda Civic ex wont start


After so many over heats.a car sometimes cant handle.
after constant over heating your cars rubber gaskets could have gone bad and turned brittle letting in oil into spark plug well #1
for your spark plug problem i would recommend changing your valve cover gaskets.
and for the over heating and not turning on.
i believe you blew a head gasket.

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire


If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

I have a 1993 ford f 150 the timeing gears were


it sounds like you are 180 out on the distributor try pulling it out and turning the rotor to the opposite side and putting it back in. the #1 cylinder will hit tdc twice for every time it fires the plug you are probably hitting it on the wrong tdc stroke.

Bottom wheel of water pump wont turn, burning belt


The wheel could be stuck but you need to have the water drained out and a mixture of antifreeze to water added to it. Be sure to keep in mind the heater core also has fluid in it and you could damage that also.

Water pump


On the 1987 plymouth voyager after market water pumps can cause shredding of the timming belt.
Use of a original maufacturer water pump can sove this problem but does cost more. Worth the cost unless you just like changing timmimg belts.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
