#101 of 178 1999 Dodge Neon stalling (automatic)
Apr 20, 2009 (5:43 pm)
Hello everyone, I am new here... hoping to find some answers here.
I have a 99 neon with automatic transmission. Lately I have been having a bizarre problem. The problem started one day when the car didn't want to start- I had to pump the gas a little bit to get it to turn on. Then when I was pulling out of the parking lot, when I pressed on the break (going less than 5 mph), the car completed stalled out and turned off... luckily I was still in my parking lot. I was able to turn the car back on, and I revved the engine a bit, and then it ran fine.
The car does stall a bit when trying to accelerate, and it seems to get stuck around 40 mph. I really have to press on the gas to get it to go- like when getting on the highway.
The main problem is stalling when I am pressing on the brake slowing down around 5-10 mph it will shudder and stalls out and act like it is going to die. It has not turned off since that first time. It does not do this problem all the time, but lately it seems to be doing it more often.
Any clue of what this could be? I do have an oil leak, but I had the oil changed last weekend, so that should be fine.
Any help is appreciated... I am not a car person at all and I'm tired of getting ripped off by car shops here!

My suggestions would be a change of the air filter and spark plugs. If that doesn't work, you might have to try replacing your cam/crank sensors. First and formost, go to a parts sore and pick up the haynes repair manual. It will give you hints on what might be wrong and ways to fix it. It'll also give you a better chance at fixing it WITHOUT having to take it to a shop.

#106 of 178 neon has rough idle and hesitation while driving

My daughter has a 2004 dodge neon that has a strange sounding idle , like its going to stall but doesn't quite. She says on the highway when going past 80 km it feels like its cutting out at times and sort of bucking. Wondering if this may sound familiar to anyone.

My 2000 neon idles a little low and rough, a soft step on the gas pedal raises the idle by a little and makes the car idle perfect. Any idea to what can cause this?

i dont know if you have fixed the problem yet but replace all the spark plugs and battery. a low battery can cause the car to shake because it can not draw proper voltage. also make sure your fuel system is not clogged. a full tune up can help.
