Question about 2004 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My girl friend has a 2004 neon that will not start. The engine cranks over but engine will not fire up. I check for spark at all wires and I have spark. I check for fuel and have good fuel pressure up to the fual rail. It seems that it might not be getting fuel past the injectors into the combustion chamber. When cranked for 15 seconds the check engine will flash 10 times. Any ideas? thanks Darien

Darien, just because it's getting good spark at the spark plug wires doesn't mean that the spark plugs are firing. Now let's get your girlfriend happy again, Remove those spark plugs, check the center electrode and see if they are worn down, if they are worn down, change all 4, Good luck, Gary

I ran my 98 neon out of gas now it wont start an i replaced the fuel pump an still wont start


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
I need more info, have you done any testing?

It cranks, but why doesn't it start?


The two things that are usually responsible are no fuel and no electric spark. So make sure you have gas in the tank. You could have a friend pull out a spark plug wire, stuff a spare plug in, set that on metal and crank to see if there is a spark. The gas is a bit harder but can be checked on a cold engine but removed the valve cap on the fuel rail and pressing on the valve. It should squirt fuel, if not, there is your problem.

If you have spark and fuel, it will need a scan. Good luck.

No spark on 03 dodge neon


There is voltage on all three wires because there is no ground, check with engine cranking. The two wires that go to computer are grounds for coils. You could probably use a noid lite to check for pulse, engine cranking. That should be safe, between primary voltage and one of the grounds. There several ways to visually check for a pulse. If your digital multimeter has a min/max setting, that should work. You could use an l.e.d. but you would have to use resistor.
You changed computer, was it new?

I have a 2004 cavalier that has a new coil new starter new module and new crank sensor in it but want start it gets gas and oil


if fuel is getting to injectors, are the injectors plugged ! if you are getting fuel to engine plus a good spark it should start. check the plugs for fouling out. maybe there not firing right. if a plug or plugs are not firing. then they will be wet on the tips of the plug. crank engine a few times, then pull the plugs to see if they are firing.if not firing, check for bad plug wires. theres so many things that can cause this. its hard to say without being there!

2004 neon sputters when accelerating or putting the engine under load. I'm fixing this problem for a friend. I was thiinking Mom starting with the fuel filter since she said it may have never have been...


Sounds like secondary ignition.

Is the check engine light on and/or flashing?

If so there is likely a misfire code that will help identify the cylinder(s) with the problem.

Check the spark plugs to see if they are pron out. Check the spark plugs and wire to see if they are carbon tracked (fairly common). Carbon tracking will look like a black line down the plug that is eroded into the porcelain. If its present than new plugs and wires will be needed.

1995 Pontiac Grand Am won't start


is it poss the engine is flooded with fuel? if you can remove the spark plugs see how wet they are. If wet, replace turn engine over while they are out remove fuel pump fuse and coil pack conector b4 you do this if unable to do this hold the gas pedal down all the way to the floor your vehicle is fuel injected this will create a fuel shut off mode which while held down will not deliver any fuel to the engine as the engine starts to fire and run rough take you foot of the pedal ane nurse it until it runs ok if it runs get your mechanic to check for leaking injectors dripping over night

2003 Dodge Neon won't start, battery is good and will crank, just won't fire and start? Any ideas what the problem could be?


Coils bad? Spark plug wires? Fuel pressure? Clogged injectors? ECU? Lots to check. Renting a code reader from an auto store may help.

My 2004 dodge neon 2&3 cylinder are not fireing


It seems like it may not have compression, where as all you need to do to test it is get an engine compression tester, which is a gaudge with a long extension on it to check your cyllender compression. remove all 4 spark plugs, have someone crank the engine over as you hold the gaudge in place. (it may make a pop noise ot a quick hiss if you don't hold down on the tester enough and sometimes when you release it) and if you have the new parts, and the plug is getting the spark, then it may be a head or heade gaskit issue. If you don't have a compression tester, you can usualy rent them at any advance auto parts or autozone. All you do is pay for the tool upfront, and when you return it you get all your money back.
Hope this helps!
