No Engine I know of has a 1,2,3,4, fitting I am sure you have the firing order connected wrong, plus your description point to the firing order as well. Cheers, Malcolm Campbell.

Just google Dodge Neon images or Chrysler Neon images and you can find some engine bay pictures. If you click on individual pictures there is a link to the source page where you will likely find even more pictures.

You can also google parts diagrams that will show a drawing of various components of the intake system. The major parts suppliers often have these exploded diagrams on their web sites so you can check item by item. This is probably the best option.

There are also numerous videos on Youtube of people working in Neon engine bays.

Hi Earl:
Since the valve cover is not subject to mechanical loads like connecting rods or main bearing caps, tightening to an exact torque is not usually an issue.
The important thing is to have the parts clean prior to assembling.
Make sure the gasket is properly fitted, and apply sealer as recommended. I would just run all the bolts in until light contact is made, then starting at the centre, gently snug them down. If you pretend you're following an increasing spiral (same idea as head bolts) and repeat several times, you'll find that a "point of resistance" is reached that indicates they are done. It comes with years of experience, and breaking one bolt because you overdid it.

Sounds like you answered your own question, if the battery was dead there is a good chance that is the reason it wouldn't start. Now you need to figure out if your battery is bad or if your alternator is not charging the battery. Have the battery charged and tested. If it tests good, put it back in the car and see if it starts. If it does, check and see if the alternator is charging the battery with the car running......you should have between 12.5 and 14 volts at the battery with the car running. If you do not have this I would change your alternator.

check fuel filter, fuel pump relay, or fuel pump. IF the car don't even crank over, (starter don't work) then:

NOTE: some vehicles have the starter relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)
1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on.
2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on
3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5
4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!
5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on
6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8
7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!
8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!
List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

About the only reasons I can think of for that to happen would be a hole or crack in the pick-up tube in the tank,an extreme amount of dirt in tank, or someone already replaced fuel pump and bent tube when installing it. Either way it sounds to me like your only way to find out for sure is to remove the pump assy. If It's the same as my 95' it will be accessible when you take passenger side rear wheel off, and look at tank, near top toward front of vehicle.
