95 Plymouth Neon is VERY hard to start. Originally, it would need to be cranked for several seconds before it started, but it would start eventually. It seemed the lower the gas level, the harder it was to start. In fact, it drives fine until the gauge goes to E; however, if the car is turned off and the tank is around a quarter full or less, it will not started again, acting like it is out of gas.
Now it has gotten even harder to start and will stall immediately after it finally starts up. Once (and if) it gets going, it drives perfectly fine. I've sprayed starting fluid in the intake, which gets it started, but it will stall immediately. If I don't spray starting fluid, it won't start at all. It has a new fuel pump and fuel filter.
Any ideas? Please go easy on me.....I am not fluent in carspeak.

I have a 1999 dodge neon that suddenly shut off driving down the road. After checking I found that the ignition fuseable link had blown. I replaced it and it drove only a few feet but had idled some time. I replaced it again and drove about a mile, another blown fuse. After getting it home I have noticed that it fuse stays good at an idle but when you put it into gear in seconds the fuse gets VERY hot. The car has an automatic transmission. Any ideas anyone?

Check the 20 amp asd fuse in the Power Distribution Center if the fuse is blown the starter will not turnover, but the headlights will still come on with no problem.The PDC is located under the hood beside the battery.

I have a 2000 neon starts and stalls all the time. Sometimes it stalls when you first starts but mostly stalls after it is warm. Replaced fuel pump but still did the same thing. So we took it to the shop. Could find nothing wrong,no codes. So they checked the fuel pressure and it was between 95 and 100 psi, way to high. The fuel pump is only 1 day old, bought it from AutoZone.So I put the old regulator on the new fuel pump and got the same reading. So AutoZone is going to replace the pump, they won't let me just trade them regulators. Just wandering if any one else has checked the fuel pressure for being high and if that fixed anybody's problem. Will be putting in new pump Friday will let you know if that fixed problem.

i don't know if you fix your neon yet but i had the same problem. i took my neon to get fix but I got it back and it still didn't work I told the mechanic that it could of been alarm system so they disconnect the wires work for a little bit but the fuses were still blowing out. my noen blew the fuses when I moved my steering column. So I told the mechanic and he told me that the problem was in the steering column. NOw my neon is working never was told what caused it but it was in the steering column.

we have a 97 neon, sometimes it just quits completely, will turn over but gets no spark. sometimes you may wait 5 min and will start back up, sometimes may wait an hour. seems to do it more when its hot out. not codes show up. any suggestions what to check.

I just got done dealing with this issue. At first I thought fuel pump too. I have the exact same car. I had my car scoped at Auto Zone, it threw a code for the cam position sensor...fixes could be replacing that part, to the connections to it, to your timing being off, to a tune up. Taking the path of least resistance (and also having 47K on the car, it was time...) I got the tune up. It solved the problem for 5 days. I had it rescoped and it threw the cam sensor again. I had it fixed, so far so good.
