Question about Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Today my girlfriend had to pull to the side of the road because her 2005 dodge neon wouldn't accelerate. When I arrived with a friend i tried to drive the car home. When pushing on the pedal the car would begin to accelerate, but then begin shaking and not accelerating. I managed to get the car home by carefully releasing my foot on the gas when it began to shake and then re-applying my foot when the car stopped shaking. The check engine light and the oil light is on. In case it is relevant, i had the oil changed at valvoline yesterday. They filled it with 4.5 quarts of long life oil, perhaps they didn't drain it all the way before adding more? Please in desperate need

    If the oil light is on, check the level and make sure the pressure switch wire is attached to the sender.
    If the engine light is on, you can have codes scanned to give you some idea of what is going on there.

If you used one of the 'quick lube' shops, you may not have any oil in it at all. One of them drained the automatic transmission instead of the oil and even filled the transmission with engine oil, destroying it. $6000 later with a law suit behind her, she got her car and money back. Most of those shops employ idiots and I would never entrust any vehicle to them.

Loud Vibration / Sound Under Acceleration And Starting Engine.


Get the engine mounts checked. A bad mount may allow part of the engine to lie on a body or frame part, allowing engine vibrations to become very loud. Torquing of the engine (under load) can cause the same type problems.

My 2005 dodge neon is accelerating by itself, and then I can't brake. What is going on?


The engine is taking in air past the MAF, the pipe going from the air cleaner box to throttle body may have a leak in it, replace it.

How do you remove the headrest from a 2005 Dodge Neon? I have tried pressing the clip on the side of the headrest retainer but the headrest extends about 5 inches and will not pull out.


there is a round plastic thing with tabs sticking out if you turn it counter clockwise you can pull it backwards over the wire and then pull the bulb out

What is the proper sequence for rotating tires?


My understanding is that with radial tires that are in use today, you should rotate front to back on same side. Not side to side.
