Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Camshaft Position Sensor-On top of engine
The Engine Management System (EMS) uses the camshaft position sensor to manage sequential fuel injection and as part of misfire diagnosis. The EMS constantly monitors the number of pulses on the signal circuit. The EMS compares the number of camshaft sensor reference pulses and the number of crankshaft position sensor reference pulses received. If the EMS receives an incorrect number of pulses, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) should be stored in the EMS. Some engine management systems will then default to multi-port or "gang-fire" injector operation. The camshaft position sensor signal is required to sequence the injector operation to the proper cylinder timing. If the camshaft position sensor or circuit is faulty, most engines will start. However, the EMS misfire diagnostic will likely be affected.
The following symptoms can be caused by an intermittent wiring connections or faulty signal to the EMS.

I own a 2002 neon sxt and recently had to replace the cam sensor it should be in the same place.
look on the right side of the motor you should see it. it'll have a small wire harness that clips in the top and its fastend with 4 bolts. Oh and take the battery out before you do it it makes it a lot easier.
Hope this helps.

The sensor will run you about $30. It's a relatively easy change.
Disconnect and remove the battery (removing it gives you more room to work).
Once the battery is removed and you move some of the wires out of the way you'll see a square looking sensor about 3"X3". It is fastened to the engine with four 8mm bolts. Remove the 4 bolts and pull the sensor away from the engine. A small amount of oil will spill out so be ready to wipe with a rag. Remove the electrical connection and disgard the old sensor. Installation is the reverse. You'll want to put a light coating of clean engine oil on the seal of the new sensor so it seals properly without a leak.
Here's a link with a diagram of its position:

go to a place that can hook your car up to a computer and see if that is the problem... if it is the problem, then you'll probably need to replace the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor which is attached to the air box where your air filter goes. it's called mass air flow because that's where all of your air is coming from. make's sense right? i have never actually seen a maf sensor go bad, but it might actually be your A/F sensor which is your air/fuel sensor which is right on the headers. hope this is helpful
