Like the style ,parts more than the value of the car ,providing that the water ports havent rotted away then i take it the cam belt broke and the valves hit the pistons ,well the valves cost about 15/30 euros each depending on vehicle model here so it may pay you to buy a valve spring compressor and change them

How do I replace the CAM sensor on a 1996 dodge neon?


Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.

To Remove
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the filtered air tube from the throttle body and air cleaner housing.
  3. For SOHC engines, remove the air cleaner inlet tube.
  4. For SOHC engines, detach the electrical connectors from the engine coolant sensor and the camshaft position sensor.
  5. For DOHC engines, unplug the electrical connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  6. For SOHC engines, remove the brake booster hose and the electrical connectors form the holders on the end of the cylinder head cover.
  7. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting screws, then remove the sensor.
  8. Loosen the screw/bolt attaching the target magnet to the rear of the camshaft.
To Install: NOTE: The target magnet has 2 locating dowels which fit into the machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.

  1. Install the target magnet in the end of the camshaft. Tighten the retainer to 30 inch lbs. (3.4 Nm).
  2. Install the camshaft position sensor. Tighten the sensor mounting screws to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  3. For SOHC engines, place the brake booster hose and the electrical harness in the holders on the end of the valve cover.
  4. Attach the electrical connector(s) to the camshaft position sensor and coolant temperature sensor (if necessary).
  5. Install the air cleaner inlet tube and the filtered air tube.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
The camshaft position sensor is mounted to the rear of the cylinder head - SOHC engine shown

99 Dodge Neon 2.0 DOHC fixed blowed head gasket still won't start


You mention that it acts like it jumped time. By that do you mean that every few revolutions it sputters like it's thinking about starting, but fails to actually run? Have you checked to confirm you're getting fuel? Have you confirmed you're getting good spark? Have you double-checked all vacuum lines and electrical connections to make sure all the appropriate sensors are plugged in? Do you have a scan tool with datastream mode so you can make sure sensor readings are reasonable? Do you have all the intake air tubing properly installed and secure? I'm not sure if the '99 Neon uses a MAF sensor, but if so, having that unplugged or having some of the intake air tubing not tight or with a hole somewhere can cause the symptom you describe as well.

I just resently replaced a brken timing belt on my 96 neon


Neons used a DOHC interference type engine. I hate to tell you this, but the valves are bent, and your entire valve train (possibly your cylinder head) needs to be repaired or replaced all together.
