I have a 2002 dodge neon with 54k on it and it seems after i drive it and it gets to operating temp and then i shut it off for like 15-20 minutes and i start it back up it has not nesesarily a tick but...

you can expect that the engine has a lot of miles on it as long as
you are not using synthetic oil the next time you do an oil change
try using straight (sae 30 weight oil) this way it will be 30weight
when cold and 30 weight when hot this oil doesn't break down
at all i have used this just for thees circumstances

i hope this helps you

1996 plymouth neon 2.0 sohc starts up fine, runs good untill it warms up about 20 min, to 1/2 hour then starts losing power, starts spiting and spudering and when giving gas wants to quit? then it...

well its a long shot but it could be your catalytic converter is going bad or is clogged, i have seen them get so hott they glow red. this sometimes can be seen at night by looking under your car after it has ran to the point of stalling and dieing,, if thats the problem the car cant exhaust creating back pressure that robbs power and can cause your car to die.. after it cools the metal shrinks back and the car will runn again untill it getts hott.. i hope this helps

Oil not commimg out ot the rocker arms one side seem to have been running hot

Sounds like its never had an oil change and got clogged up, best thing to do is use an engine flush see if that clears the oil ways. I have just put some diesel fual through my oil before that works really well and will not damage your engine, run the car for about 10 mins half oil half diesel then drop the oil, put some cheap oil in run it again for 10 mins drop the oil and then put some good oil in it.
