Question about 2003 Dodge Neon

2 Answers

Fuel Filter My SXT has had a rough Idle and doesn't want to start on cold days. Ultimately it does start and runs a little better once it warms up but still has a tendency to spit a little at stop lights. My first guess is the fuel filter but I am not sure where it is located. I've been told that it may be in the gas tank but I thought that was the larger micron sock that catches the larger debris before the fuel hits the smaller filter. Does anyone have any idea if this is my issue and where the filter is located?

There is only the filter in the tank and it is not replaceable. that is probably not your problem. I would take it to a shop for diagnosis since this could be caused by allot of things.

You may have dirty fuel injectors - once the engine warms up and goes to closed-loop operation, the computer can compensate for clogged injectors to some extent. Another possibility is sticky valve lifters that work better once the oil gets hot - if this is the case you may hear a rhythmic tapping noise in the valve train at idle while the engine is cold.

Although is could be a fuel filter, it could also be a fouled spark plug, or a bad spark plug wire. Once you've ruled these things out, the problem could be the TPS (throttle position sensor). This controls your idling speed under all conditions. A faulty TPS will usually idle fine when the engine is cold but once warm, will tend to sputter and in some cases, stall.

Could be a problem with the fuel hose connections. When cold they expand allowing the system to **** air. Warm they contract making a better seal. Try clamping the connections to the filter and on the tank.

Vibration at idle


it may be idle control sensor or a bad mas air flow sensor--maf sensor in otherwords. or could be engine misfire at cold temp. start. only time when cold? or does run better when warm? try warming engine to operating temperature before driving,if problem removes it's self after warm up,up grade gas to 93 octane for 1 tank full. then see if problem goes away. it's cold where you are right? if so the fuel needs to be at least midgrade 89 octane fuel because 87 octane fuel will not start your honda correctly at cold temps. in cold weather 93 or super gas octane will start ,no problem,low octane fuel sometimes gels, or freezes at low temps. if in warm climate, change the fuel filter, add fuel injector cleaner to your fuel tank[preferablly lucas fuel treatment] this will lube your fuel injectors and give better fuel mileage. thank you for choosing fixya.com

89 dodge shadow. hard start. normal idle cold, fast idle warm. sometimes it wont start until i hear fuel pump activate.


Hello,
The car may be hard to start because it may need a normal tune-up. If the spark plugs are pretty used, they will slowly stop burning as much fuel because the spark slowly gets lesser and lesser. On a cold day the fuel is harder to ignite with a small amount of spark.
Normal idle when its cold means that your cars idle is probably too high. If you lower the idle, the choke on a cold day will keep the idle a little higher until the motor warms and then it will kick back off. If the idle is too high, it will run very rich, smothering itself with fuel, and causing the idle to stay low. When the car warms, its creating better spark when its warm, and with the idle being too high its running at a fast idle.
The car wont start sometimes can be the cause of a few things. If the ground is bad on the fuel pump, it wont make a good connection sometimes for when you turn the key on, the fuel pump dont pump the fuel to the engine. Another one can be that your accessory switch can be loose going to the fuel pump. I think its your ground though. Good luck! Hope this helps.
Have a nice day. -Steve

1991 dodge colt won't idle when engine is cold.


probably oil, it may be too thick when it's cold but once it warms up it liquefies and your engine runs smoothly. you could try changing oil, I'm guessing if you have a high performance oil the chances this is the problem may be greater since high performance things are usually geared towards working well when everything is hot
