MY 97 HAS ONLY 122.000 ON IT RIGHT NOW, BUT I WAS GETTING 26 TO 28 MPG, I REPLACED THE PULLEYS WITH SOME AFTER MARKET ONE THAT ARE LIGHTER AND SMALLER, I NOW GET RIGHT AT 32. I ALSO HAVE OTHER MODS AND HAVE 243 HORSE WITHOUT A BLOWER ON A SOHC 2.0, AND PLAY AROUND ALOT, MY AFTER MARKET THROTTLE BODY HAS ALSO HELPED AND I DID NOT PUT ALOT OF MONEY INTO THESE ITEMS, CHECK OUT MODERN PERFORMANCE.COM. THEY HAVE A LOT OF THINGS FOR NEONS AT REASONABLE PRICES. I USE THEM AND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL I HAVE AT LEAST 300 PLUS HORSE, CHECK OUT THE PULLEYS, AND READ THE COMMENTS OTHERS HAVE POSTED ABOUT THEM, YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF DOING THE SAME, HOPE THIS HELPS.

We are having trouble with our plymouth breeze(identical to Stratus) When we start the car it automatically blows fuses. They say the alternator, starter and solenoid check out okay.
Does anyone know why the fuses may be blowing? My husband has already checked the heating coil, and the fuse did not blow when the wire to the solenoid was disconnected.
Would appreciate any replies or suggestions!

#1729 of 1773 97' DOHC\alternator, cold starting and instrument cluster problem
Jan 14, 2009 (5:29 am)
alot of the time when i start my car the headlights and heater fan inside the car dims until i hit the gas and spin the alternator. somtimes even when im driving ill come to a stop and let it idle and it does the same thing...however i have never needed to jump it unless i left the lights on...so it seems to be charging the battery. and when i go through some deep snow it slows down regardless if im hitting the gas. any thoughts??
also it doesnt like to start very well in the cold unless ive been dumping stuff in the gas to make it start cold. but once ive run out it will sit in the cold for 3 hrs and not want to stay running. any mods i could do to fix it without constantly having to dump shit in my tank?
instument cluster/ speedometer stops working all the time..it will either just not work or it will die when im driving..it will eventually come back but not without it jumping up and falling down a couple times. had sensor fixed and a wire reattached when it didnt work at all right after i bought the car now it does this. also all the guages freeze every once in a while. solution anyone?

Last year when I had to take my car in for an emmisions test. I had to take it to some one on their list for professional repair . During the process the replaced my sway bar and fixed my emissions problem the over all bill was 569 dollars. the main thing was the sway bar it costed about 299 dollars It took it to the local dodge dealership they did not charge for the full price of the mechanic to work on it. So I got a deal.
#1732 of 1773 Dodge Neon Front end repair
Jan 16, 2009 (11:58 am)
I was a large equipment mechanic for 16 year before taking a job as an IT Support Analyst, so I know my way around the mechanical end of most vehicles. I have 2003 Dodge Neon that my daughter crashed 2 months after getting her drivers license. It was a fron end collision that pushed the radiator into the intake manifold and the fenders fair enough back to prevent the doors from opening correctly. My question is would it be better to replace the entire front clip or is it possible to straighten it out properly. We did not have full coverage insurance on this vehicle so insurance isn't helping out at all. We have since purchased her a new car, but would like to get this one going again so my wife can drive it to work as it is much more fuel efficient than her Expedition. If you need more details please let me know. I just have not had that much experience at body work, but have this a my winter project.TIA
