Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Have a 2005 neon 2.0 sohc limping missing backfiring under accel mechanic took off timing cover, belt is fine but the cam gear is "Wobbly" so the idea is a problem in the cam/valve/head assem. only 60k miles on it so wtf? apparently its expensive of course but i want to know more than just what the guy taking my money tells me. is there any chance its the bearings or whatever on the camshaft or is it a bent valve or broken v. spring? has anyone ever seen anything like this? I always use topshelf synthetic oil plus zmax and take good care of this car. it just had its 60k or thereabouts service and we found the sparkplug socket homeslice used still chillin by the hoodlatch, on the radiator, what else he forgot i don't know, maybe a couple bolts here or there? thanks for sharing your knowledge with me!
A spun cam bearing perhaps? which would probably mean new cam, new bearings, new head..... sorry but I am sort of agreeing with the mechanic.oh... not to laugh at your situation but the socket "chillin" on radiator comment... LOL
