#1378 of 1773 Is my fuel pump bad???
Sep 08, 2005 (3:29 pm)
it's a 95 neon 5 speed. A week ago it ran great. it will start and idle perfectly but as soon as you press the gas it "blub, blub, blubs" like a motorcycle with the choke left on. If you let off the gas it goes back to idle. I replaced the fuel pump and it was no better. If you pump the peddle quickly you can achieve the higher RPM's. There is no smoke coming out and the oil is clear and clean. There is the oft mentioned oil in the spark plug tube in one of the cylinders but it looks like it has been there for a while. The head was redone a year ago.

I mispoke. I replaced the Fuel Filter not the Fuel Pump. Anyone have any suggestions???

I own a 99 neon SOHC. My battery light came on and thought it was the alternator so I had the alternator changed. No change & my mechanic said it was the Power Control Module so we put a new on in, but no change. ANY IDEAS?

#1384 of 1773 1997 Neon Short in Ignition Switch?
Sep 13, 2005 (8:50 am)
I bought a good used 1999 Neon a short time ago. Love it! HOWEVER (isn't there always a "but"?) one day I turned the key and NOTHING! After playing around a couple of times, I found that the key turns too far and the car will not start. Once I got it running I could even REMOVE the key and the car kept running. I wasn't happy about it but as long as it started I didn't care much. Now I care....because it sometimes takes me 5, 6, 7 turns of the key to get it started. IS THIS THE IGNITION SWITCH IN THE STEERING COLUMN? If so, does anyone have experience with this, had theirs replaced or could offer me some information? I don't want to be taken by a mechanic that can see a sucker coming a mile away. Fore armed is fore warned! I'd be deeply appreciative if someone could give me some guidance!!!!

Thanks for your reply! We need all the help that we can get.....What is the battery tray sensor? We are taking my car to the dealership in a couple of days for a diagnostic, but I have no faith in them finding the problem. My husband has tried everything.

its leaking gas by the gas tank. there are 3 places where it looks like hoses can come out of the gas tank . 2 of the hoses go to my gas filter and the 3rd port the hose is gone or there is a cap that goes there. i cant find any hose hanging to connect to it. there is a hose clamp still in on that nub. any idea where this 3rd port would go to or if it just needs to be capped off??? ty
