The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter. This is just a general method; it is very hard to give words to describe some of the steps without pictures. Removal: Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove starter bolts. Remove starter assembly. Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly. Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly. It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector. Installation: Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid. Attach battery positive connector to starter. Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector. Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) . CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems. Install solenoid connector to starter. Ensure that latch is fully engaged. Position the starter face into transmission housing. Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug. Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt. Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque. Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.

SOURCE: need wiring diagram for 2000 dodge neon

i would recommend buying a Haynes manual, as they have very good diagrams and schematics. If you do not want to buy one, though, you can create an online garage on Autozone.com by registering (which is free) and add your car to the garage to get access to a free manual online. These manuals are kind of hit-or-miss, though, and i have had mixed results with them. But for free, it is worth looking into first.

i hope this helps,
matthew

SOURCE: replace lowerr right motor mount on dodge 2001

Yes you can. Just put the car on JACK STANDS, As you will need to raist the engine slightly with a jack to take the load off of the mount to remove it. Buy the new mount first, so you will see where the bolts go. BE safe and don't rely on a tire jack

SOURCE: i need help changing my starter i need to know how to drop the engine so i can get to the starter

Here are instructions as well as links to some helpful diagrams.

This starter motor removal procedure is time consuming. An alternate method of removing the starter would be to remove the engine fan(s) and radiator, then remove the starter motor from the top of the engine. If you chose to go this route, radiator and fan removal can be found in Section 3 of this manual.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. If equipped with A/C, perform the following:
    1. Use a floor or jack stand to securely support the engine and transaxle assembly so they will not rotate.
    2. Remove the front engine mount bolt from the insulator and front crossmember mounting bracket.
    3. Carefully lower the front of the engine, rotating the engine forward allowing more space for easier access to the starter. For easier removal, do not remove the wiring from the starter at this time.
    4. Remove the 2 starter motor-to-transmission housing mounting bolts.
    5. Remove the starter and solenoid assembly from the transmission housing. Position the starter accordingly for access to the wiring.
    6. Remove the positive battery cable nut and remove the positive battery and alternator output wire from the starter. The wiring is shown in the accompanying figure.
    7. Detach the push-on solenoid connector. Pull back on the slide and push down on the rear tab to release the lock.
    8. Position the starter vertically so the pinion end faces downward, then remove the starter motor through the bottom of the vehicle. It may be necessary to move the A/C lines aside slightly to maneuver the starter out of the vehicle.

SOURCE: what size socket do I need to change the oil and brakes.

The oil drain plug is a 13 mm. The tools for the brakes, a 10 mm socket for the caliper pins, a flat head screwdriver, or a meduim size prybat to get the calipers out of the mounting bracket, and a 4" C-clamp to compress the pistons into the calipers so you can put the new pads on.

I changed the transmission in a 2001 dodge neon and now it wont start


Bypass the switch that prevents starting in any gear but Park. That would interrupt voltage flowing to the starter. It might not be sensing which gear. May be normally open in all gears and closes in Park.
Be sure it is being actuated. First disconnect it and see if the starter works. Then jump it with a pair of clip leads and see if it starts. Check the wiring from that switch to be sure it is connected to the starter relay. Could be as simple as a plug out.
