Question about 1997 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My daughter's 97 neon will not start in below 40 degree weather. I have replaced the crank shaft sensor, map sensor,and tps sensor. Will it help to replace the cam sensor? Or is the cold start problem something else entirely?

Need to know how many sensor. is on my transmission.. 2003 Pontiac Montana v 6 .. can you show me picture where transmission control solenoid goes?


There are 12 common sensors and 10 internal sensors. The most common that often fail (MAP), (TPS), (CAM), (IGN), (CRANK) MAP is your mass air flow which is located at the beginning of your air intake, TPS is the throttle body position sensor, the CAM is the cam shaft position sensor (transmission), IGN ignition position sensor and the CRANK sensor is located near the bottom driver side front

2000 VW Beetle will not start in cold, runs fine above 40 degrees


I was just reading the owners manual for my 2000 beetle and it says the diesel fuel has a problem with the wax separating from it below 40 degrees. Put the car in a warm garage and it will start.
