Question about 1996 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

1996 Dodge neon SOHC. Car has 33k. Its my grandmothers who rarely drove it obviously. Well lately I have been getting a CEL and when ran says the #1 cylinder is lean and is misfiring. I am going to replace the ign. coil, plugs and wires. Change the fuel filter and the oil. Pop in a new air filter but suspect the problem to be the injector. Does this sound right? Like I said the car is rough to start but dosent seem to hesitate when I am driving it. Does this make sense to anyone?

No it doesn't
If the injectors all click, move on

Start with the codes you have
Give them to us

Clean MAF Sensor
Install new O2 Sensors --if 15 years old
New Spark Plugs

I wouldn't think the exhaust converter is doing
much after 15 years

Call the Dodge dealer near you and give them your VIN number. They will be able to tell you what the vehicle came stock with. If they have it go there and get it as it came with this filter from the factory.

Hello, you could try pulling it and the pipe off and cleaning it before replacing it. An egr is pretty expensive. When you go to clean it use Carb cleaner.
