Question about Dodge Neon

2 Answers

Stupid neon. i have a 2005 dodge sx 2.0 and the engine light just came on. the car only has 54000 km on it and i've had nothing but problems with it. its been in the shop so often i can't beleive that it was a new car. moisture problems, then 3 throw out bearings ( needs a fourth now) 2 block heaters, and like i said before, check engine light is now on. now heres the symptoms since i've given it's life history. when it's cold it seems fine but after only a few minutes it starts coughing like its out of fuel even though the tank is full. it idles just fine till you drive then it becomes a coughing neck jaring ride. won't go any higher than 2000 rpm before it slows to a roll then throws you into the seat after another cough then back to the roll and so on and so on over and over. any ideas?

I would suspect a bad fuel pump. Its what I would be testing first once I see all the data that a diagnostic tool can give. If all the data looks good then the only option would be a bad fuel pump or a failed computer. If the car will not go over 2000 rpm then a code is set which will limit the RPM range so as not to allow you to mess anything up accidentaly before it makes it to the shop. But even for us its all just a guess, sight unseen. . Not all mechanics are created equal. Maybe you need a differnt one.

    Scan it. See if you get a code for the camshaft position sensor. It's about $70 and you can do it yourself.
