Question about 1997 Dodge Neon
My 2002 Dodge Neon will not start. The fuel pump is engaged and delivering fuel to the engine. You can hear it whine when you turn the key. Also,the engine floods when I try to start it. You can smell the gas. The starter engages also. All electrical power is on in the car. When I turn the key, the car trys to start but it just will not catch. It seems that there is just no spark in the engine to combust the fuel and start. Even after changing out the plugs, ignition coil and wires. Does anyone have any clue as to what the issue might be?
HEY! I JUST changed my camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor yesterday and I had the EXACT same problem. Now it starts right up for me perfectly, BUT I now have ANOTHER issue. The Engine seems to have lost all power, it will hardly move when it is put in gear, I'm lucky if I can go above 5MPH!
But yea, if your check engine light is on, turn your key(don't try to start it) back and forth 3 times, once you have turned the key the third time, you SHOULD get a code you can look up in the repair manual. The code will either be a readable code: ei P01684, which is the code for battery disconnection, or your check engine light will flash a series of times, stop, then flash again. Depends on your dashboard. If you have the electronic mileage meter, you will get the readable code. If you are unsure of how to perform this very simple home diagnostics test, you can also RENT the actual plug in tester from AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts. I hope this helps you, I figured my problem out the hard way ei MECHANIC= EXPENSIVE!
