#2 of 170 96 stalling and sputtering
Mar 27, 2006 (8:12 am)
I've had a 96 Dodge Neon for a couple of years now, a problem that started last year and I've been fighting with is it keeps stalling and sputtering. I've replaced the O2 sensor, plugs and wires, fuel pump, altenater, just about everything I can think of. I replaced the O2 sensor because the first time it did this the engine light came on and the only thing that came up was the o2. But when it did it again soon after that, I started changing things, I'm starting to wonder if it is the relay to the fuel pump, because that is what it almost seems like is that it is starving itself for fuel. I was wondering if it could also be the coil pack? Really need to get this problem fixed before I have more invested in fixing this problem than I do in the entire car.

virg15370: Had a very simular problem. The dealer found the two cam sensors were bad. Hope this gives you some help.

I have a 1995 plymouth neon with about 265000 kms. at x mas time i had a simular problem where i had changed everything u did but the alenator. it ended up being a power sensor modulator. 365 cdn for the part and 650 labour because they have to reprogram the computer after. as far as i can tell its the silver box on the drivers side by the battery. since then the car has ran like new again. last week i spit the tranny shifting into second. i have put new struts all the way around new controll arms at the back, all i have left to do is ball joints again, and tie rods and i will have a new car again, the motor still runs like brand new

I have a 99 neon and last night while driving it went from 45 mph to 0 and stalled when i stopped at a light. Now it won't start. It acts like it wants to crank but its not getting any gas to actually start

Check your fuel pump. This is how they go.

#8 of 170 1996 Neon Stalling/ MESSED UP!

So about six months ago I was driving on the freeway to Seattle, and about one hour into the drive I pressed down the gas to pass someone, and I heard a clanking. If I removed my foot, the sound would go away. About five minutes later the car began to jerk back, and eventually stalled completely. I went to the dealer and he couldn't find anything. Two weeks ago I was driving down the freeway again, and the car stalled, and all of the electronics turned off, including the power steering. I started driving to the dealer but everytime I stopped at a light the car began to shake, and eventually stalled again, with the electronics and everything. The dealer said "it's the computer." They apparently fixed it, but two weeks later my car did the same exact thing. I took it back to the dealer and he said they didn't plug the computer in properly.
Today, I was parked, and turned on my air conditioning, and it stalled completely. Can someone please tell me what is wrong with my car? I'm tired of these dealers lying to me to make money.

i have spent alot of money on this neon
so far this year i have put 18"chrome rims with 215/35/18 on
lambo doors and i have full air ride on this car and a octane body kit.
this car is now 11 years old nad the own before never changed anything. so guess what.
i've bin changing this ever t month in this car.
but im having trouble with it stalling.
ive changed the plugs
wire. coil twice
2 new battery
3 fuel filtters. and still trouble
even time i slow down or stop at light my car will be fine until i push down on the gas. and theres nothing, no move ment no noise nothing. i have to tap it over and over again nad then slowly theres like a burp nad it slowly starts to move nad then the power kicks in.
and if it stalls i have to tap the gas pedal when turning it over....does anyone have an idea... i have it up on blocks right now so i can drain the gas out, and then in the morning im going to get a new fuel pump and hope to good it fixes it...
the only weird thing is the check engine light comes on and the codes tell me that its a throtle senor issues and a multpil cylinder miss fire.
and a injector miss fire...
so that changes things from what i thought but still they all need gas to fire so hopefully im right .... if anyone has an idea please let me know thanks steve.

Codes don't lie. As I was reading your problem I was saying "Throttle Sensor" because my 99 will sometimes want to stall after I've first started it on a cold or wet day and I've installed high performance wires on it. If you have the bucks, get it to a shop and have a diagnostics test done on it. Also it's not a bad idea to go to Autozone, PepBoys or Advanced Auto Parts and pick up the Haynes Manual for the 95-99 Neon. It's a great investment. A "Throttle Sensor" is what was called the "Choke" on the older cars with regular Carburetors.
