#1645 of 1773 Need to find location of all a/c hoses on 1999 dodge neon dohc
May 28, 2007 (5:27 pm)
Can anyone point me in the direction of a diagram or pics of all a/c hoses on a 1999 Dodge Neon? I recharged the a/c yesterday and today I think one of the hoses failed. Big cloud of a/c coolant came from under the hood with a hissing sound. Where ever the hose failed ( if it was the hose ) was under alot of pressure, pretty sure it wasnt the compressor but I cant find where or which hose or part failed. Can anyone help me? I have the Haynes automotive book for it but it only shows how to recharge the a/c and change the compressor.
#1646 of 1773 Running Rough
May 28, 2007 (8:01 pm)
My Neon is an '03 5 speed. It has just over 71,000 miles on it and I have never had a problem with it until now. A few days ago I filled up at the Exxon station, and noticed right after that the engine seemed to be running a little rough. It is steadily getting worse, and I noticed when I am starting out in 1st it sputters and seems like it wants to quit running til I give it a little gas and once on the road it runs fine. I also noticed some strange noise coming from the engine compartment toward the front of the car that sounds like a hissing sound. It's not a constant hissing though. It starts and stops almost in a way like it's trying to suck for something that is not there. There is also a strong odor of gas coming into the car intermittently, usually when it is running rough and I push the gas pedal in to get it to run more smoothly. I put in a bottle of STP fuel injector cleaner but so far it's not getting any better. The engine light has not came on since this began. Any input as to what could be the problem would be helpful.
#1647 of 1773 water pump help
Jun 05, 2007 (2:23 pm)
I'm attempting to replace the water pump on a 97 2.0 dohc. I can't get the lower pulley off the engine to remove the timing belt cover. Any suggestions? my gear puller isn't doing the trick. Additionally, I'll need some info on adjusting the alternator belt, I ended up just cutting it off, I couldn't get to the adjusting bolt.

Calling it a lemon would be a fantastic compliment to it!
I'd be embellishing for the good if I called it only a
#1649 of 1773 Strut Replacement
Jun 19, 2007 (11:44 pm)
I have been given an estimate to replace the struts on my 97 Plymouth Neon (744.21) which includes an alignment and am looking for any feedback as to whether the price is reasonable or not.

The question is, is that for all four struts? The struts in the front or the struts in the rear? That price for all four is a fair price. I had the rears done on my 99 Dodge Neon and that went for $550 including the mounts.

Yes, that is for all 4 struts.

Hey my names Greg proud owner of a 1997 plymouth neon 5 speed what you need to do is go to wal*mart and buy an a/c recharger it comes in a can leave the car off while you do this regaurdless if it tells you to keep it running or not make sure you have someone with you while you do this when it says its charged stay under the hood and have someone turn the car on and turn the a/c on and try to figure out the hose it is leaking from when you find it out take it to the dealer and have them get you that hose or if you are a "do it yourself" kind of guy take the hose off yourself and bring it to your local parts store and hae them ring you up a new one also look underneath the car there are a few hoses under the car if you didnt already know about them hope this helps out atleast a little bit
#1654 of 1773 My final post
Jul 06, 2007 (11:16 pm)
This is my final post to this forum as I am no longer the owner of my '03 Neon. I traded it in for a '07 Chevy Cobalt. The Neon was a decent enough car for a little bit, but as more and more problems began to surface with it, I decided it was time to get rid of it. The trunk began to leak water every time it rained and filled my spare tire compartment and floorboards with water, it all at once started running like crap (refer to a past post)and overall I was just sick of it. Sad to say, but I don't think I will be buying a Dodge again anytime soon. Never had problems with any other cars like I did with the Neon. Good luck to all you remaining Neon owners.
