Question about 2004 Dodge Neon
This presents a very unique and interesting problem.......the work originally performed on the vehicle is suspect, as the first instance of the vehcile slowing down, is very very very similar to a catastrophic engine drama, like a timing belt breaking, or if it did "skip" a tooth, WHY.......a timing belt does not skip a tooth unless it was not properly tensioned in the first place, or there is a problem with the camshaft or cranshaft gears themselves which would cause this.......so I am extremely cautious on their diagnosis of nothing being wrong......
As well as this
The 2.0 Liter SOHC and DOHC engines used in the Neon are interference engines. if the timing belt broke while driving there is about a 6 in 10 chance a valve came in contact with the piston. The only way to know for sure is to replace the belt and perform a compression check to see if any valves are not sealing, so I would ask them whether this was performed or not.

That is frustrating. Your camshaft sensor is more than likely bad. And it sounds like the timing is off from when they changed the timing belt. I would suggest taking the car to a more reputable shop. I can't really tell exactly what is wrong with the car without listening to it and driving it. But you can take the car to Autozone and they will check the codes for free. Then you can get back on here and tell me what codes you are getting and I will let you know what I think needs to be done.
