Take everything in front of it off.  Use a long breaker bar and socket, 1/2" drive, 3/4" if you have one.  Put the socket on the nut and the bar across to a piece of the frame.  BUMP the starter.  DO NOT CRANK IT.  This will break the nut loose.

Recheck the fuel pump - it's not the engine. Something about seating and fixing the fuel pump has disturbed something. Investigate around that, probably pull the pump again and thoroughly inspect.

I would also check fuel pressure -

Makes no difference where you got the vehicle, A recall is a recall no matter who you are. If you have this recall problem, take it to any dealer and they cannot refuse you.

You have to remove the air cleaner hose to the throttle body to access the sensor. I hope it helps. You will see it, its on end of engine. Remove connector then the bolts holding it on. God-Bless! Hope this helps you. The dodge 2.0 is known for bad camshaft sensors, certain years.

Car will not start how ? A crank- no - start or a no crank - no - start < meaning when you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ? Starter engages an spins the engine an doesn't start an run ! Or when you turn the key to start the position nothing happens ? Who told you it was a fuse ? Are there any light's lit on the instrument cluster , SECURITY ? If Nothing happens Find the starter relay an jump pin's 30 & 87 , if nothing is wrong with starter , battery , battery cables it should spin the engine . Is your vehicle automatic transmission or stick ? Automatic has a neutral safety switch , won't let vehicle engine spin unless in park or neutral . Manual has clutch switch , won't let starter engage unless the clutch pedal is pressed . Both of these switches can go bad . There are videos on youtube on basic electrical trouble shooting . Also on testing starter circuit . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

First you have test the circuit to find out if it's shorted or an open circuit ! Do you have DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? You can buy a cheap one for $10.00 - 15.00 at auto parts store . Then you'll need wiring diagrams so you test the right circuits . You can find free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html . You mite want to watch this video .https://youtu.be/efKoWifdcag

The lash adjusters and rocker arms are one piece and that is how you replace them.

1996 Dodge Neon | Answered on Sep 23, 2016

Ok here is the deal, the lifters are poorly designed and prone to noise or "tick", the way to silence this is not just new lifters but new rocker arm assemblies which include new lifters. Use the best parts not the cheapest ones, factory new one are improved from previous designs. If you still want to just replace the lifters you must take the rockers to a machine shop and have the lifters pressed out and replaced by them. Another suggestion is if you live in a warm climate use 10W-30W synthetic oil.

A number of reasons that dash lights will not come on. Let us start with the first. Do the parking lights come on on the outside of the vehicle when turning the switch on? If so, then I would suspect that you most likely have a bad dimmer switch. That is the switch that dims the dash lights. They commonly go out.

If the parking lights are not on then I would suspect a parking light fuse. If parking light fuse is good then I would suspect a headlight switch.

Most likely, based on experience with Neons, it is usually the dimmer switch. You can buy a dimmer switch on the internet or at your local auto parts store for a relatively decent price.

Hope this helps.

on top of the fuel tank. this is a single line fuel system and that is where they put it. the tank will have to be lowered to change it.

Change the left rear turn signal light bulb. It is probably burnt out! The fast blinking flasher is the clue you have a blown bulb.

At the upper part of the brake pedal, you'll find the brake light switch. Replace it and you should be fine.
