Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My '97 dodge neon will not start when it's hot outside. When it's cooler like in the morning it will start and run fine. My car will also stall out if it gets too hot. It's not an over heating problem cause the gauge never gets close to HOT. Any ideas?

Try changing the coolant sensor. I'll bet your gas mileage is less than normal too. The sensor is not reading correctly when hot & is not allowing the computor to advance the timing to adequate levels thus the poor performance. It is located near the thermostat housing. You may lose a little antifreeze when you remove it. Also if you unplug the sensor when the engine is hot, it will run much better in the meantime. Just plug it back in for start up. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start


Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

1998 Dodge Neon engine died when valves started knocking and car will not restart.


Check the engine for compression. Your head gasket may be shot. I have a 97 that had a similar problem, and we did the head gasket, car runs fine now. Prior to doing the gasket mine wouldn't start at all.

Do a compression test.

My Neon keeps stalling


Try the simple stuff first and ask yourself these questions:

How old are the spark plugs? (I think this is 90% gaurenteed the problem)

Is the car getting enough air through the filter?
Is the filter dirty? (replace if so)
If not you might need your idle advanced a little.
