Question about 2005 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT. Having no previos issues/problems... a few weeks ago I was driving down a busy road & all of a sudden it totally just shut off on me. I wasn't able to turn the wheel, non of my dash lights flashed. I was able to slightly, with great force, turn the wheel & coast onto the road side. I had a FULL tank of gas & all of the lubes & liquids had recently been serviced. When I stopped I turned the key off & tried to restart it but it made an aweful sound. My neighbor was kind enough to come pick me up & tried charging my battery from his car, but soon realized the battery wasn't the issue. He tried to restart my car & it begins to start but won't turn over. he said it isn't getting any fire. So he & my husband towed it to our home & my husband replaced the coils. That didn't work! I hope someone can help with the right answer.

If it cranks good but won't start, Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Check for applicable trouble codes. You need an obd2 code reader to check codes, yourself. Hopefully the code reader will check manufacturer specific codes as well as po codes.
At the ignition coil and fuel injectors, dark green wire with orange tracer should be hot with engine cranking, use a test light to check voltage. If no voltage, that leads back to asd relay. I'm not saying the relay is faulty. The computer has to see both the cam and crank sensor signals before it will ground the asd relay, if either one of those sensors is faulty, the vehicle won't start. Just my opinion.

SOURCE: !996 Intrepid has fuel smell after filling up and stalls intermittently

I just emailed this to someone else, it might be your problem. Also, what I didn't mention to this guy, is the recall also states that a fuel line somewhere up there can crack too. Look it up to see exactly what I'm trying to say, just get on google and it will pop up.

A factory recall put out in AUG 98. The seals on the fuel lines up on the top of the motor wear out and when the engine is hot they expand and then leak fuel when the engine starts to cool off, you don't get the correct fuel pressure to the injectors, and you have to flood it to get it to start or let it sit longer. Just go down to your local Dodge dealership and they will fix it for free, I'm getting mine done Monday, my car is a 95 with 166k, and it won't cost me anything. Google recalls on 96 dodge intrepids with the 3.5 L if you don't believe me.

The codes listed all point to the transmission being in bad shape or some wiring got crossed. Check with a trans shop for an estimate.

Why is my 2005 dodge neon sxt automatic significantly jerking at 60 mph?

You have an intermittent problem, and it's probably going to be horribly difficult to track down. Your best bet might be to borrow an OBDII scan tool so you can read the codes while the problem is happening.

That mechanic who visually inspected your camshaft position sensor apparently doesn't understand that the sensor can LOOK just FINE while at the same time it's as dead as a doornail. You might try having that one sensor replaced, just to be sure.

Have 2005 neon SXT automatic. The Transmission is not shifting smoothly, is shifting at higher rpms than normal. Has vibration when you put it in reverse.

I would suggest that you try servicing the transmission and having the fluids and filters replaced. Dodge is really good about having transmission issues related to partially plugged filters or stuck valve bodies.
