#1175 of 1773 1996 Dogde Neon Stalling out
Mar 17, 2004 (10:41 am)
I have 96 3-speed dodge neon and it is stalling out on me. I had the trans checked, new fuel pump, new ECM and the repair shop has had it for a few days it has not stalled on them and they aren't getting any codes when they run the diagnostic. It stalled out on me about 6 times in 20 minutes. I mean the car just completely shut off, not the power but the car itself so I know its not the alternator or the battery... HELP... also my door squeaks is there anything I can do for that?

My 95 automatic has been sitting for a couple of months. I was worried it wouldn't start, but that was not the problem. My joy at it's starting was overshadowed by the fact that it WON'T MOVE! The rear wheels are locked up tight as a drum, so to speak. What's up with this? And how do I fix it?

Was your parking brake on and was it below freezing outside? I know this was a common occurance in Germany - the rear brakes were frozen onto the drums (or in some cases rotors).

Hi, I am hoping some other purchasers of this car will visit this site soon as I'm interested in their experiences with this car. I just bought one-brand new- and am shocked as it seems the brake calipers are all rusted? Also when I play a Cd it seems to make the engine mess up? Any advice? otherwise it's doing very nicely:)

We are buying our first Neon this weekend. A manual 2000 4 dr all basic, no ac, under 45,000 miles for $2900. Though it is a base model car, it seems like a steal--much newer with many thousand less miles than we thought we'd find for the money.
The one big drawback, worse than no ac, is no cruise control. (My last speeding ticket comes off in November---and I don't want to risk another.) How expensive is it to add on a cruise control at this stage in the game? I wouldn't mind a pop up sun roof to take the place of no ac, but cruise comes first...
Thanks for your input.

I would not put off any oil change in any car no matter how good they say the car would last (dumb)any smart consumer knows you need to change it every 3000-5000 no matter WHAT!!!!!! and as far as doing it your self take your car to a certified mechanic and insure that no matter what someone else is liable other than your self. IT'S CHEAPER IN THE LONG RUN!!

MY(BASIC)NEON IS THE BEST 4 YRS AND NO PROBLEMS OTHER THAN THE REGULAR MAINT (OIL CHANGES & TIRES) AS FAR AS YOUR BASIC NEON I HAVE ONE AND IT IS WORTH WELL OVER 2900.00 W/O AIR. IF YOU HAVE THE MEANS TO MAKE IT WITH A SUN ROOF GO FOR IT, BUT AS FAR AS A CRUISE CONTROL IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH TICKETS YOUR BETTER OFF W/O! TRUST ME!!!

Wow, that really seems like a "steal"! I paid $12,500 for my 2004 but it has everything except a sunroof. I am alittle disappointed in how they cut corners on some things tho- like no light in the glove carpartment? and unless u turn on the lights, u can't see to shift in the dark! However, it did very good in the awful rain we just had when someone went sideways in front of me, even without the ABS brakes!! Now if the engine would quit knocking at times at a light...so only minor kinks so far.
#1184 of 1773 How do you replace the headlamps in a 99' Dodge Neon?
Nov 03, 2004 (9:23 am)
I bought this car used, so I don't have an owner's manual. Is it very hard to change out my headlamps? I want to buy some 9007ST Silverstar lights and put them in, but I'm not sure how.
