Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
You may just have a low idle? Does your car normally idle below 500 RPM?
To increase your idle, simple open your hood and locate your throttle body. It will be found where your air intake connects to your engine. There may be a plastic cover over the actual throttle, and if there is, remove it. Then you will see the small, shiny throttle arm that is connected to your throttle lines, which you will recognize as small cables. There will be a single screw that controls where this arm sits. This is the idle control, as it controls how open your throttle is when you are not applying the gas pedal. Tighten this screw a 2-3 turns and try to start your car. You may notice that it idles higher, and, therefore possibly louder, Try to find the lowest possible idle speed that allows your car to run without dying, this will ensure you get the best gas mileage possible.
