Dodge neon shuts off while driving

the neon has a problem with the wiring near the engine mounts in that it breaks or otherwise looses connectivity and that set of wires are for the cam position sensor
with that sensor not reporting to the ECM , the engine is turned off when there is not reaction from the engine , connection is restored and so ti start up again
check in the wiring harness in that area for the problem

Was running fine then stalled suddenly. when it started back run rough at an idle black smoke from exhaust then press the gas pedal and it quit now it will not start at all

I just had a similar situation. The truck would run fine and then the Service Engine Soon light would start blinking and the truck would go into "limp" mode. It would eventually stall. Strangley though, if I turned the key over and then restarted it, it would start right up and run again. It ended up being the IPDM (Intelligent Power Distribution Module) that was bad. It cost me $520 to replace it.

How do you check if altenator is charging battery,

Most vehicles if you get the car running and unhook the positive battery cable it will stay running that is because it is running off the alternator. if it dies like your talking about I would most definitely say your alternator needs to be replaced. Most likely when you jumped your father in laws pick up there was a bad ground somewhere and your alternator got a surge of electricity and it fried it. Hope this helps.

Engine overheated, now car won't start without giving it gas

Some cars cut off as a fail safe to overheating especially on newer cars. The computer controls the fans and if they are not working the computer is probably telling the car to shut off. Have you replaced the motors already, if not, this is what's happening. Once you replace the motors it should run fine. I wouldn't suggest driving it too much with this problem as it may affect the computer by giving it false info.
