Make sure your fluid is up where it should be in your rad. Make sure your hoses are not kinked and is your rad clean on the inside. You may have to flush it out.
I would change your thermostat as it could be seized shut as well. I would put a new thermostat before tearing a lot of things apart

SOURCE: 1998 Dodge Neon engine died when valves started knocking and car will not restart.

Check the engine for compression. Your head gasket may be shot. I have a 97 that had a similar problem, and we did the head gasket, car runs fine now. Prior to doing the gasket mine wouldn't start at all.

Do a compression test.

it sound like you have a bad crank sensor when the sensor gets hot it open circuits inside the sensor and you loose spark if you have access to a noid light see if you are loosing injector pulse also if so then you know its a good chance its the crank sensor

SOURCE: I am changing the alternator in a 1998 dodge neon, need diagram

No diagram...
The pivot bolt is the long bolt that holds the alternator to the frame.
If you loosen it, the alternator can "swing" with the pivot bolt as its .... well, pivot, or swing center.

The long bolt must be removed completely in order to remove the alternator.

Be sure to doisconnect the negative cable from your battery.

Hope this hleps w/o a diagram.

On my 1998 dodge neon, I replaced the water pump and the car is running hot, the fan does not come on, what could the problem be?


Always start with the easy things. Likely an electrical connection on the fan or on the sensor is not connected, or a sensor was broken by accident. Take a close look at all the connections that are near or on the pump and the area where you were working. Especially look for thing you had to remove or disconnect to replace the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What makes a 2004 dodge neon run hot


Numerous things make a car run hot. Water Pump, overflow cap, belt not tight to turn water pump enough to keep it cool, radiator has a small hole or needs to be flushed to clean. Are you losing coolant? If so can you see what area it may be coming from? It more less something that has to be narrowed down without seeing it in person.

2000 Dodge Neon Radiator Swap


If rad/cooling system runs low on coolant, it will starve heater core of hot coolant that it needs to put out heat. Fill rad, with heater on, and cap off, to bleed out any air in system while you run it for a while with cap off, and see if that doesn't give you heat back.

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.
