Chrysler Neon 2.0 R/T running problems

Chrysler Neon 2.0 R/T
The malfunction light came on a few weeks ago and the car constantly stalled. My mechanic replaced the Idle Control Valve and eventually was able to clear the fault light. Although the stalling problem was resolved the car then started to race off on its own and was doing 5000 rpm without me using the accelerator!! After further investigations including contacting local Chrysler garage and only slight improvements mechanic then changed the MAP Sensor. The car now runs reasonably well but regularly surges and picks up speed on its own but nothing like before. It has only stalled once and the idling speed is a little unsteady.
The mechanic has run out of ideas and I guess the next option is the main dealer so hope you can assist!

    Mechanic assures me there are no leaks. This evening the car stalled when leaving work and the malfunction light re-appeared, however, the car then proceeded to drive perfectly on the 3 mile journey home. I called into the local shop and on returning when starting the engine it immediately revved up to about 3500 rpm and stalled when slowing down to turn into my road.



    I have contacted another local mechanic recommended by a family member to see if he can resolve the problem before I go to Chrysler but any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated.



    Regards

94 Chrysler Lebaron Convertible will not idle but will start and run at high idle.


Try your Idle Air Control Motor. It is located on the throttle body under the throttle position sensor

I have a 93 3.0 that is doing something similar but has not gotten to the state yours is in. If you find anything out let me know. Mine is going to the shop.

Why would my oil light be coming on and beeping even though I have a full oil reservoir?


if oil level is ok, your oil PRESSURE is dangerously low.
Either the wrong oil was used, or your oil pump is going bad.

Ill bet on wrong oil since you just had it changed,

the 2.7l has a sludge problem. This could cause the stalling and loss of power. There's a few fixes, the new water pump (which is part of the problem) doesn't dump coolant into the oil pan. Easy way to check is to simply drop the oil pan.

The internal lights of my Chrysler Neon car is always on.


I had the same problem a few months ago. If you locate the pressure switches on the door frames (which are pushed in as the doors are closed to switch off the lights) you will see that the centre of each switch is adjustable. Working on each of the doors, if you carefully pull the centre of the switch out slightly and then close the door the switch should then adjust itself and create the contact needed to switch off the interior lights. I hope this helps. David W
