Question about 2000 Dodge Neon
First question is when you try to start the car does it spin fast or normal like it want to start? If fast timing belt, if normal a different problem. Also how many miles do the car have? Has the timing belt ever been changed? The reason i'm asking these questions is to help trouble shoot what the problem is with your car. How was the car running before it stopped?

If the timing belt broke It's not worth fixing. Probably. $1,200 fix if done by a mechanic. That's if there's no damage to the top end. Try shooting a little starting fluid in it to see if it will fire to make sure it's not a fuel issue. Could possibly be fuel pump also.

Hold throttle open to a normal highway RPM in the driveway and observe rad hoses for collapsing. Do your run up the road & see what rpm your at when gauge starts to move toward hot, then use that rpm, in driveway . You did run that engine for quite a while with rad cap off when you refilled coolant, with heater on correct?

Most mechanics would pull the spark plugs and check the compression in the cylinders, but usually anyone with a trained ear can tell by the sound of the starter when cranking against the compression of each cylinder. Many of the smaller engines today have valving designed so that when they are out of time, the pistons interfere with them. That means two objects try to take up the same space at the same time and at minimum the valves bend. Worse case scenario would be upper head/camshaft damage and possible piston damage. That's pretty severe. You won't know until you get the valve cover off or maybe deeper. Hope that helps.
