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.

Im still working on my 97 neon, have replaced fuel pump, oxygen sensor, cam sensor, timing belt, (only code that comes up says the timing belt is one tooth off but its not), and tune up. still having the stalling problem. going to test the throttle position sensor,dont think thats it but worth a try. Im wondering about the computer. has anyone had to replace theirs.

Funny because I had the IT Guys from work go out and mess with it and everytime they stuck something in the throttle hole(lol no sure the exact term) my car would start.. and they did this 2 days ago and so far no problem... so now we think that the throttle sensor was just stuck or they said something about the choke being stuck... when i had my car hooked up to computers at 2 different shops no code came up so they just started replacing cords wires pumps and all that good stuff... after 800plus dollars we have it narrowed down to a $15.00 piece that needs replaced...How annoying is that!!!!

When turning the ignition key, cluster lights up, hear the fuel pump hum. No start. Battery good and posts cleaned. Fuses good. Steering column does not lock.

Hi, Mine does the same thing I also have a 98 it is turning out to be a money pit. Did you get a solution to this annoying problem?
Anything would be greatly appreciated. It dies out quick like it lost all power, I am wondering if it could be an electrical problem.

Hi!!!! I had a tune up done, fuel injector cleaning, and a New Fuel pump put on it!!! 820.00 later it was still acting up here and there and eventually it started up without trouble!!! So far it hasn't been acting up so I am not sure if it just had to finish flushing the stuff out or not. (im not to car handy) but so far so good!!!! I only have like 10 months left to pay on it so I didn't want to trade it in yet but Also didnt want to put fortune into it either!!!! Good Luck with yours!! I still get nervous when I am out and about weather its going to start or not...

Also I took mine to AutoZone when it was still acting up and the guy said before i replace anything else or spend money find someone who can take the Throttle Sensor out and clean it real good to see if that helps!!! Hope it works for ya! Cars are a pain in the butt for sure!
#136 of 169 97 neon that dies
Sep 23, 2010 (7:47 pm)
Im still working on the 97 neon that dies for no reason. only code that ever came up was timing belt off, I checked, it wasnt, Ive replaced the cam sensor, throttle position sensor, fuel pump, ignition, checked the coils, grounds, connections, Im at a loss.

Column does lock, after some wrestling. Replaced the starter. S.O.S. Swapped the A/C relay for the starters relay. Vroom. It fired right up. J.C. a fricken bad relay!
