Use a pair of channel lock pliers and grab it at the sides. Replace it after it's off.

    Not really. The top part of the cap is broke. Grabbing it and applying pressure usually gets it off. On rare occasions, I have had to break the cap apart to get it out.Small pieces of plastic wont hurt the the engine. .

I'm trying to locate the oil sending unit on a 2001 plymouth neon

How many miles on the car? I recommend hooking up a direct reading oil pressure guage. Oil level is not the only factor on oil pressure. As an engine ages, clearances and bearings wear and the pressure falls. Using too thin oil can result in low pressure.

My oil light keeps coming on

I had this problem and it was the oil pressure switch that had gone bad. Try changing that, it's a pretty cheap fix

Engine Overheating 2001 Neon

This sounds as if you have air in the system, you will need to bleed it. Take the radiator cap or coolant expansion cap off, with engine turned off, Now squeeze the bottom hose, and the top hose continually until you see bubbles appear ,the coolant level should momentarily rise and then fall when you release the hose, do this to all the hoses ie, heater hoses as well as the top and bottom hoses, keep doing this until no bubbles appear, by this time the coolant level should have dropped,then start the engine and run at tickover until the coolant level stabilizes,turn off engine and top up coolant to the level,refit cap and run to operating temperature. If this does'nt cure the problem the chances are that the system is drawing in air , but thats another problem! hope that helps

I have a 2000 Plymouth Neon. I have oil in the

sounds like blown head gasket or possible cracked head. Only way to know for sure is either you pull the head, take to a machine shop have it serviced, they will replace any bad valves, resurface and pressure check it. If its cracked they will tell ya. The alternative is to pull the head, clean up really good and put a new gasket and reinstall the head. If it doesn't fix its cracked.

Trouble code 456

The gas cap! Never fill up when the car is running. It will cause the EVAP leak code. Check the cap to see if the rubber gasket is in tact and not cracked or worn. If it looks good, screw it on tight, have the code cleared and give it a day or two. If the cap was the problem, you won't get the code back!
