Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Hi, I have 2005 Neon SXT which was running fine the other day. I went out to start it this afternoon and it starts fine but dies immediately after. If I floor it, the car won't die but I have to keep my foot on the gas otherwise it will.
I have no check engine light or codes, and it was running fine the other day, so I'm a bit stumped. All electronics come on and it's got plenty of fuel. I checked the engine and nothing looks out of the ordinary either and no fluids under where it was parked.
I have been having the exact same problems in my '05, but mine doesn't start up fine. I have to hit the throttle to get it going. I was thinking it could be the IAC valve as well, so I might take it into the shop tomorrow.
I took my air cleaner and intake tube off, and the throttle body had a slight build up of oil on the blade and the surrounding surfaces. Some TB cleaner for the throttle body and IAC valve might do the trick... I'll let you know what happens.. KEEP US POSTED
