2003 dodge neon security system

I have a 2003 dodge neon and somebody knocked out the entire lock cylinder and started it with a screwdriver. which it did start a few times and then died and went into a security lockout mode. what I am wondering is if I buy a new lock cylinder that is specific to this car will it recognize it and come out of the lock out mode or will I have to go further with this to ever get the car going

Best place for this is a service dealer
normally the immobilizer works around the barrel and is activated by the proximity of the fob key
if you were to get a locksmith to install a new barrel , it would have to be reset to your key so that you could insert the key and activate the immobilizer system
another way may be to get the entire lock system from a wreckers and have it reprogrammed by a locksmith or service center to your key or a new key

Why does the push rod on the clutch master cylinder keep breaking when trying to bleed the system on our 2001 Dodge Neon.

I think there may be two different types of master cylinders -- one uses a longer push rod than the other. If possible, check that the old part is exactly like the new one. If the old part is not available, try getting a knowledgeable parts person to check several year models up and down from yours to see if a different part number exists.

check for the starter motor but I suspect a flywheel gear worn. By removing the starter motor would be easier to check the flywheel gear.

My engine in my 2000 dodge neon is knocking hard and my car smells like its overheating

You can either have motor work done or you can put a new engine in because when an engine starts to knock its over. Its from when your piston rod is hitting the side of the cylinder wall, or one of your cylinders is backfireing i would suggest just getting a new engine.
I hope that this answer will help you

How do I change the rear wheel cylinders on a 2003 dodge neon stx? any help would be greatly appreciated....

There will be two bolts on the back of the wheel cylinder that secure it to the backing plate.
- Remove the drums and all brake components obstructing the removal of the wheel cylinders.
- Remove the brake lines going into the back of the wheel cylinders, use plenty of spray lube, and work with the fittings on the lines gently, you may have to warm them with a torch to avoid damage if they are frozen.
- Replace wheel cylinders, re-connect brake lines
- Re-assemble rear brake components
- Bleed air from brake system

Acts like the knock sensor is bad. engine misfire on multiple cylinders.

The knock sensor will give you poor accelleration only when trying to drive at first when cold & the same when the engine is hot. If you have a misfire it will be something else causing that. A weak coil, Timing belt, a waek ignition module, & so on.
