I have a 1998 Dodge Neon. One of the coils is not firing of the two, Don't know whether it's the crankshaft or computer. What's a good way to test for either?

Replace the non firing coil, very common. also replace the spark plugs and wires. I dont have a wiring diagram here at home to verify which wires are which, but if one coil is firing, they both have power.

I have a 98 Dodge Dekota. Can someone tell me if a crankshfat sensor & a distributor preform the same thing? I was told I have a distributor and not a Crankshaft sensor.


they do a similar job but in a different way. no you don`t have a cam sensor in the conventional way, the distributor tells the computer when to fire the injectors and ignition.

Check if your pump is working. Check the fuel pressure. If you have fuel pressure at the engine''s fuel rail, check if your injectors are pulsing. Sounds like gas is not getting to the engine or not getting into the cylinders.

1998 dodge Neon no fire to coil


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

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.
