    ok the van is getting worse still the vacums all checked out and so did the idle sensor the van finally popped a code for the collant sesnsor could that make the van want to cut out . the van starts acting up when it reaches temps and has been driven for a few miles around 30 it starts to cut out and feels like some one is pulling on me trying to stop me with a bungee cord but i can drive through it an d if i take my foot off the gas then pressit to keep speed it will stop for a few minutes also i replaced the oil sender sensor and before i did the gauge would read atbout 50 of so and would flux higher and lower now the gauge reads at 40 then when it has been drivien and i start to have porblems it drops to around 20 and fluxs between 20 and 40

If the failed are the O2 sensors, they send message error to PCM, then "check engine" must turn on, I dont think that this its the wrong, but check it.

Your car is equipped with a computer controlled engine management system. If the scan's computer for fault or error codes , this information should pinpoint the malfunctioning components. You tell us that dont showed any code, uhmmm. Your IDLE Speed Control motor is what we would look at. Also any vacuum leak, check it.

IF no codes are present then try testing the fuel pump with a gauge it should be between 55-65 psi, if not, replace the fuel pump.

Keep us update.

    A common method is to spray a fluid such as carb cleaner or starting
    flud around the vacume lines. When the idle changes the leak is where
    you sprayed.

    This is AFTER a good visual inspection looking for cracks etc. Just about any spray will work. Some people hav eused propane but I don't recomend that.

    Don't underestimate the value of a good general tune-up on engine performance. Don't forget the plug wires.

1998 dodge neon stalls after awhile wait a little bit then it will start and go for awhile then stalls again.

Not trying to highjack your post. I just bought a 98 neon sport, manual sohc 2.0. Im having the exact same issue i think, car will run for a while then tac drops to zero and it dies, 5-40 minutes later i can restart but i usuall only make it a few blocks and it dies again, wait again and it will restart. Did you solve this problem with your neon and if not can anyone give me more places continue to diagnose. It has new cam and crank sensors, fresh plugs, wires and coil, new battery. I got the car cheap, thinking of fuel savings but i dont want it to became a parts money pit.
