Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2000 Dodge Neon vibrates when acclerating up hill

When I drive up a hill and my car has to drop gears to make it up or even on the smallest of hills when I give it enough gas to want to shift my car shakes VERY badly. If I baby the car up these hills accelerating very very slowly its less likely to happen. this doesnt happen in high gears, im pretty sure it only does it in 1st or 2nd. When it happens I can either let off the gas and go slower or I can give it more gas making it go away but doesnt feel good for the engine

    Your Transmission is turning higher RPM's in the first 2 gears. If the vibration occures when atempting to load the engine you may find that one of the flywheel bolts os broken, loose, or has the bracket broken on the Torque Converter. That is the ocation of the vibration is most cases like your.

What is wrong with my dodge neon when back fires and no power going up hills

You have a bad coil, most likely. Check the catalytic converter also at a shop. Possibly bad spark wire(s). Last but not likely, a prob with the PCM .

Hi! The brake master cylinder surely is faulty causing the brakes to stuck up. You will need to have the brake master cylinder replaced to get this car running. Hope this helps and have a good one!

1990 5.7 seems to lose power going up some of the smallest of hills. it always jumps into passing gear before it makes it to the top of the smallest of hills.

how many kms do you have, or could be plugs, wires, cap, rotor, timming off set. cat could be plugin up, its hard to say..

Car looses power up a hill

How slight was the hill and how much weight did you have in your car? When you got power back was it because you were no longer on the hill or were you going downhill?
You may just need to drop down a gear to get the power back, if you have a heavy car even slight hills can cause it to lose power especially if your in top gear. You have a "sports transmission" option (I'm pretty sure it's on all the DSG transmissions) you just need to move it across to the +/- bit and move the stick to the - to go down a gear. Otherwise you'd have to wait until your auto decides it's lost enough revs to go down a gear. Which is why I hate autos.
Otherwise it could be bad fuel or something wrong with the turbo.
