Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My son bought a 2000 neon that was wrecked. I have gotten the front end apart and had it running. However it was skipping. When I got to checking things. The pin in the ecu that goes to the #2 cylinders injector was broken off. I went to the local pickapart and got another ecu. The car started and ran great for about 2 minutes. Then the car shut off. Now the theft light is on and it wont even crank at all. Even when the original ecu is installed. What do I do now. PLEASE HELP!!

Welcome to FixYa.com

You are going to have to have the computer reset at the Dodge dealership to reset the security code. It is a theft deterrent. Once Dodge resets this, the car will run fine. The computer from the pick a part is not the original computer for the car U have.

2000 dodge neon cranks but wont start. If i unplug the cam sensor it will run for a second ( with it plugged in there is no spark coming from the coil)


You just proved that the cam belt has skipped time. That is the procendure to check. Remove the covers and line up the marks and you'll see your problem. while you have the belt off put on a new one as it should'nt skip unless it's worn out.

I have a 2000 plymouth neon and for some reason when i drive it in the rain and go 20mph or faster, it starts to hydroplane on me. what would cause that problem?? it has good tires on it .


I experienced the same problem with my 95' Neon. I also had what I thought were good tires on my Neon. Although I had lots of tread, I still was a nervous wreck when it rained. Obviously one of the problems with smaller and lighter cars is it's resistance,(or lack of) to hydroplaning. I spoke to a friend who owned a tire shop and he recommended a different tire that he had used on numerous occasions in just such a scenario. I had them installed and could not believe the difference first time it rained. I could drive through water running across the roads during heavy downpours at highway speeds and it would cut right through with minimal to no loss of control. It was like night and day. It doesn't have to be the most expensive tire on the market either, just the proper tread pattern for water evacuation. If you check on ( http://www.tirerack.com/ ) you can choose driving conditions etc for your preferences and they will recommend a better tire, and you can see the price as well.

I am trying to change the brakes on a 2000 dodge neon and i need directions.


I assume just the front brakes?
You will need brake pads, brake cleaner, a small packet of brake grease, a large 4 inch C clamp, and possibly new rotors if the old ones are bad (abnormal wear or it they are out of spec).
Start by jacking up the car one one side after placing the car in park and putting the parking brake on. Remove one of the front tires. Now spray the brakes/caliper with the brake cleaner so that you won't be breathing in brake dust particles and this will help clean up the parts (try not to get the brake cleaner on plastic parts). The brake caliper holds on the brake pads with two large bolts that will be parallel with the axle. Remove these bolts. You should now be able to pull the caliper and brake pads off of the disc/rotor. Make sure not to wreck the brake line that runs to the caliper. Take off the outer brake pad. Now take the C clamp and use it to slowly depress the inner brake pad and caliper. Make sure you have the old brake pad on so as not to wreck the new one. Once depressed, remove the brake pad and put the new brake pads on. Make sure to then grease the two caliper bolts and reassemble the brake assembly. If you replace the disc/rotor, spray it first with the brake cleaner to clean off anything left from manufacturing. Repeat on the other side.
Make sure to pump the brakes before driving. Let me know how this works out for you.

If your check engine light is coming on, then there should be a trouble code stored in your computer to tell you what area to look in for problem. Run into an autozone, or Pep Boys & get a free scan and see what they say comes up for codes & then if not obvious what the problem is, get back to us & we'll help you out.

I have a 2000 Dodge neon, and I need a Passenger side front inner tie rod. How do I know if mine is a firm feel steering or non firm feel, because those are the two different types of tie rods I can choose...


This is the 1st time I heard of 2 being available! You learn something new every day. I checked and there are 2 as you say,
1. Firm feel steering inner tie rod is 293.7mm long, or 11.563 (11-1/2") inches
2. Standard feel steering inner tie rod is 274mm long or 10.7874 (10-3/4") inches long. Remove yours (count the # of turns to remove, replace new end with same # of turns to get the adjustment close and you should get a front end alignment after doing any front end work) and measure it. That's the best way to determine what you need, the 'firm feel' is about 3/4 inch longer than the 'standard feel'. Let me know how it goes.

My neon is showing a dtc code 1390, timing belt has skipped one or more teeth. Checked the timing marks and everything is as it should be, should I condemn the cam sensor, or the crankshaft sensor? Or is...


P1390 means cam/crank not in time. Probably slipped a tooth on the cam belt (Installed wrong most likely, easy to do) or, just a chance, cam timing sensor is bad. Take it apart and look ,if you bought the car this way you may have wrong or damaged timing gear,stick shift or automatic may have different shape where the sensor rides,
