#147 of 178 I have 1999 w/same sort of problems
Jun 15, 2011 (3:25 pm)
Hi, I have a 1999 Dodge neon. Few weeks ago I was accelrating on highway & it lost all power then instantly died. Started right back up. i took it to mechanic they changed throttle body, throttle position sensor, fuel pump & fuel filter. Before taking it to mechanic the computer scanner did not pull up any codes. I got car back & it now had long start up & hesitation on take off & misfiring. Took it back to mechanic they adjusted throttle body. Still had same problems & had it scanned again scanner showed bad cam sensor. I replaced that & has it scanned again it still shwoing bad cam sensor & now ambient air temperature sensor. Currently car still has long start up, & loses power on accelerating too fast. could my PCM be bad? Or if anyone has any other ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

i have the same exact problem. my tranny just went today too, when my light comes on it says its my "idle air" so that could also be a cause.

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon. It will run fine for a while and then when you try to start it, it will start and die 3 times and then it will not start for a while. When this happens, the security light stays on. The computer has been replaced along with the ignition module and a new key has been programmed. Any ideas?

So my daughter just bought the 2005 dodge neon and i was driving with her the other day i noticed the car loose power and get power back. The car didn't die but lost power. do you think by replacing crank position sensor might fix problem? she tells me today when she was making a right hand turn she had to slam on the brakes because people were crossing and the car died. dman93 when you were driving your car did it completely die or did it just stall for a second.

well i have a 01 dodge neon also my process of thinking about that is that your car could be over heating and your RPM's aren't staying up far enough or not shifting at the right time i push my car hard and i drift with it so its still going for me just think about every solution and look for the problem

Hi, I've had the same problem with my '98. I've had basically every thing under the hood replaced...cam sensor, spark plugs/wires, valve cover gasket, melted wires replaced...and have had the PCM replaced...and it's still dying on me. Let me know if you ever find out what's going on and I'll do the same.

I have my fingers crossed, replacing the cam sensor I noticed there was oil leaking into it, havent addressed that problem yet, but cleaned it and replaced the cam sensor and havent had it die for a couple months now.

hello all! this is the 3rd different forum ive been on on this site for several different issues with my 95 plymouth neon! well ill just get to the point. my car has been in and out of the shop more than ive actually been able to drive my car in the past 3 weeks. and about a week ago i was turning into a gas station and my car lost all power and died. i have NEVER had any problems like this or any problems with the way it drove before. for the rest of the night it wouldnt start, you could tell it was trying just wouldnt turn over. so the next day i wake up and try it again and on the first try it started like a champ! so i drove it around for a few days, made sure i didnt go anywhere far just in case and ran pretty good except i did notice when i was going around 35-45mph it would stutter and jerk forward a little bit. so yesterday im on my way to work and completely dies and shuts off again! i got it towed back to the shop, they have had it for over 24 hours now and have done every possible test they could and test drove it 3 different times. and my mechanic said he couldnt find anything wrong with it, said it drove like new and all of the test results and codes came back outstanding! IDK what to do at this point, so irritated!
