Question about 2002 Dodge Neon

3 Answers

I have a 2002 dodge neon with a 2.0 liter engine. it has developed a severe engine oil leak, going through 2-3 liters of oil in about 80 kilometers. i cannot locate the leak, but do know that it is on the right side of the engine. it is also leaking under pressure. does anyone know of a common problem with this engine.

Hello dahewings,

One common problem is the cam position sensor. It's located on the cylinder head on the drivers side.
It has 4 bolts and a plug plugged into it.

Regards,
netvan

If your oil pan, plug, and filter look good, I suggest checking the seal between engine and transmission. That is a lot of oil....

Shouldn't a 2.0 liter engine be getting better gas Mileage than a 2.4 liter engine?


The size of the engine alone will not determine gas mileage. There are many other factors including vehicle weight, design of the motor, etc. So in answer to question 1, size isn't going to matter.

For question #2, make sure you change the oil, oil filter, air filter and keep the tires inflated to recommended specs. That might help you out a bit...

Trying to find out how much oil the Triton V-10 takes when I do my oil change? I cant seem to find it or anyone who knows


It should be listed in the owners manual, but because of different oil cooler setups you may have to do the change yourself and add oil until the correct level is established..... for the first oil change.
Most likely 7 liters,but start with 5,run the engine to fill the oil filter,let it sit for 5 mins and recheck and fill to full.
Note the amount needed for next time.
