    Sounds like your transmission is loosing pressure. When was the last time the trans was serviced?

    How many miles are on the car?

Why wont my car accelerate?

If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

I would start by checking main fuses under the hood. water could have cause a short also check battery cables to see if they are heavy enough to carry the amp load needed to start the car. factory cables are not heavy enough after a few years.

A drive cycle is a test that the on board computer performs while you drive the car to prove out all the systems on the car that control tailpipe emissions, if it finds a problem it will trigger a check engine light and and the drive cycle will not complete. The correct name of this is the "OBD2 ELECTRONIC ENGINE CONTROL DRIVE CYCLE TEST". "OBD2" is short for On Board Diagnostics generation 2. The test is just driving the car at various speeds, stop and go traffic and idle time, make sure you have at least 5 gallons of gas in the tank as well. Many folks disconnect the battery to clear a Check Engine light when a smog is due, this resets the computer (known as the PCM) and then you must complete a OBD2 drive cycle, which of course will turn the Check Engine light back on.

I have an 2001 dodge neon, When i got it, it drove so good and now every time i try and start my car it has a hard time running and when i push on the gas pedal it sounds like my car is getting flooded or...

May have a few issues here. The first is a possible vacuum leak. Vacuum leaks are so broad though. You'll need to check the entire intake for rotten hoses. The hard start could be a bad fuel pressure regulator of fuel pump. Along with that. The Fuel Pump could be related to more than one of those problems unfortunately. Another thing could be the Throttle position sensor not getting the propper voltage to allow for smooth running and acceration. Does the car have a check engine light on?

Car stopped while driving, but then I could restart it

You'll have to find out what's causing the check engine light. Take it to Autozone, have it scanned for free then get back and let me know what they say.
