yeah napa should have the mounts cut i stopped in the store and they can get them but they were about $32 each so i went on summitracing.com and they had the inserts for $42 and it had all 3 inserts for the motor and tranny(they are supposed to be a little stiffer) i dont know how they will be cuz they are still in shipping damn ups and not working on sat. haha but when i put them in ill let you know how bad it was and how good they are i drive a 98 dodge neon but i am thinking they will proly be about the same when putting them in

Hello! I bought my 98 Neon in late November. I wanted a car that I could trust to take me from my college town to home (2 1/2 hours) and still get good mileage. It's an automatic, but it gets at least 30 mpg on the highway, even with my lead foot. I've only had it for 5 months, but I couldn't be happier with it. There were no problems for the previous owner;and the only problem I have is that I can't get the moonroof back on its track. I'm poor and not mechanically inclined, but if someone can tell how I can fix it myself I'd be grateful. I got this car for $2500, so I feel like a got a great deal. I love my car! I can even fit my 350 lb, 6 ft tall brother in the passenger seat and still get up the huge hills of the Ozarks! Now that is impressive. Have a great day everyone!

I have had my 00 Plym Neon since Feb. 04 and every once in a while weird things happen. The problems I have had are: the factory alarm goes off for no reason(usually in the middle of the night), the power locks flicker while I'm driving, and today for the first time, the door lite kept popping on along with the dome light. This happens pretty random but the only thing I can relate to each occurrance is that its either really cold or raining, or some other change in weather, when these things happen. I'm clueless when it comes to cars, so I don't want to take it in until I have some idea what it will cost. Any info would help

I have a 1996 Neon, it was running good up until last week, it was stalling, running rough, and then not starting at all just turning over. I'd leave it for a while then all of a sudden the car would run fine after, anyways i did all the preliminary checks : coil resistance, Cam Sensor test, Crank Sensor test, and fuel pressure test, and they all turned out good when the car was running good. But when the cars acts up i don't have any spark, or fuel, and to make matters worse when it does this, i can't even get into the computers diagnostic section with the Snap-On scanner. I'm starting to believe that the PCM is being the main source of the problem, but i was just wondering if anyone else has had any sort of problem like this and could give me any ideas on where to go next, because i don't want to go start changing parts and not figure out the problem

My girlfriend's 2003 Neon had a very similar electrical problem where all the lights went out and then came back on. The dealership said they couldn't find a problem, but after a few days it happened again. The dealership ardently assured us that the car was fine, but finally the lights wouldn't turn on at all; and as it turns out the problem was a faulty switch in the dash that burnt up the wire harness. They replaced the entire harness. Now the lights work fine, but the car bucks under acceleration. A new set of spark plugs was the solution the first time it did this, but now a new set didn't even phase it. The dealer suggested new plug wires, but it seems like a fuel issue. Is it true that the 2003 and newer Neons don't have a fuel filter? That's what the dealership said.

neo763: I have had three neons; a 96, 2001,and 2004. My 96 now has 175,000 miles on the orignal engine. The 1996 is the only one that has needed motor mounts, several times. The one in the front seems to need replacing about every 80,000 miles.. For some reason this one takes more of a beating from curbs, and rocks, and parking lot stops. They are not cheap as you say, I paid about $125. installed at a local garage in Sept. 04. The mount came from Napa, which you already said. You are not alone. But the Neon keeps going and going.
