I have a 1995 dodge neon 2.0 single overhead cam and I was replacing the crank sensor and it broke off into block How can I get it out? Help Me PLEASE!


Need more info....Did it break off because of being factory crossthreaded or was it just a freak accident ?....They make easy out tools for that but you have to carefully drill through it...Can you not get vise-grips on it ...or is it broken flush flat with the block...In any case you need to start spraying it with PB Blast to help loosen it up...Dont use WD-40..it is no good...SPray wih PB Blast let set off and on for a few hours ...Maybe even let set overnight and soak if it is that bad...However you need to let me know how bad it is and I will help guide you through it...After 7 at night.......Want to help..Level 2 Chrysler Tech....Metalpoet

We replaced the Water pump and Timing belt on a 1999 Plymouth Neon 2.0 Single Overhead Cam Engine. Engine Cranks, Is getting Fuel...but no spark. We changed the Coil Pack. It still cranks, but no...


If its not getting spark the choices are limited. You already replaced the coil pack so whats left is ignition module, crank sensor, knock sensor, cam sensor, or the timing was not was not set properly when putting it back together. Any one of those would create a no spark situation.

In 97 ford festiv 1.3engine single cam if timeing belt slips posible of valve bent or its free wheel engine plesae inform me


If your timing belt slips (most likely broke) yes it can break/bend valves. You won't be able to determine extent of damage until to tear it apart. When belt breaks, yes they they "free spin"

MY 1998 DODGE NEON WONT START. I WAS TOLD TO REPLACE THE CAM SENSOR AND DID SO. THE COIL WAS CHECKED AND ITS GOOD. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM


I bought one with the same problem, the mechanic chaged: camshaft sensor (it was ok), the coil pack (was ok too), the pcmodule( ok too) the arness (ok) and did not start. I checked timing belt and was ok. but wen I did the compresion test , every cilynder was too low ( 10 30 an 0), my firsth idea was head gasket replecement,and wen was remooving the camshaft sprocket Bingo: the small pin was broken (that means that the camshaft sprocket was not align in time) Had to chage the head an the camshaft both in terrible shape. bad lobes and cam bearings worn out. wen I crancked it start at the first time. PD. the head wasnt craked, the head gasket was good too and the valves ok .

I have a dual over head cam 97 neon.It is not firing, i changed the crank sensor,the coil,and still no fire. the relay was switched.no fire. The last time it run yesterday, it run horrible. Backfiring,...


remove your valve cover and have someone try to crank it over while you watch the camshaft to see if it turns, your timing belt may have jumped a tooth ( causes bad running and back fire ) and then broke

I have a 97' plymouth neon and it wont start, it turns over but wont start.


Sounds like a timing belt has broken. If you are lucky it has not done more damage. Best to hook up a code reader and see if it is reporting missing cam sensor. If it is, the timing belt is broken.

Timming belt broke on 92 accord,set cranke to tdc


you will need to open the engine up if you can not turn the cam fully. something has been bent or broken or else it will turn. by breaking your timing belt was it shredded? if so you do have internal damage

97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down the road need to know how to get car back in time bought a new timing belt new tensioner and still cannont get car to start junk yard says my car does not...


I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.
