Question: I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt 2.0 liter. It runs for maybe 8 or so miles then it will pit and spudder to a stall. I can turn the key off and start it right back up and it will drive again for 8 or so miles then repeat the same process of spitting and sputtering to a stall. I have replaced the spark plugs. Plug wires. Coil pack. Cleaned the EGR valve. Checked th MAP sensor. Checked the TPS sensor. Replaced the fuel pump. Cleaned out fuel lines fuel rail and OHMed the injectors. Also cleaned the injectors. Unplugged the Coolant sensor. "Fan Counteniously runs." Checked for Vacuum leaks. Replaced cam sensor. Replaced crank sensor. and it still does the same thing. Spuddering to a stall after driving it for a bit. There are no check engine lights on. I'm pretty much stumped and dropped alot of money into this car. I also checked to make sure there was plenty of exhaust flowing through the back. So therefore i do not thing it is the cat either. Any tip's hint's ect would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. BTW i even tried the key dance and still no codes. Even though i do have a live feed data scanner. I am fairly good with cars. Any suggestions?

I would start by taking the quick disconnect off the fuel line at the fuel rail and make sure you are getting fuel. If so proceed to next step by making sure you are getting fire. Pull your number one spark plug you can have a arc tester or you can simply place it by metal and ground it out and have someone turn the key over to see if it is sparking. "Don't hold on to wire or be where you can be shocked"

I had an intermittent stalling Issue with My neon, it Was so frustrating it made me sick, it would run Fine but I couldn't depend on how long It would run for, It would Run. Fine for days, others
I wouldn't get a half mile,let it sit 20 mins it would start. Fine an drive for hours!
Eventually I Figured out that there is a ground Bolt that u cannot see up under another Part on the drivers side of the motor, this bolt grounds three different electrical components at the same Time! It sits in between two metal parts making an. Intermittent ground issue !
So my suggestion To neon Owners is to chase all ground wires clean and tighten to. Make. Absolutely sure there right! Took me twenty mechanics an two years to figure it. Out!
Hope this helps everyone! Alohaa

It's a bolt that grounds out three different components, but it wiggles between two metal parts so its an intermittent ground,!

I seem to be having a simular problem with my 96 plymouth neon SOHC. The exception is that if I let it sit for a little over an hour i can drive roughly 18-20 miles before it starts to spit and sputter and the engine jerks so hard it feels like it is going to jump right out from under the hood. about 3 minutes later i lose everything and the car stalls. It will start right back up just fine but the moment i put it into drive and go to take off it jerks spits and sputters again.. but if i leave it in park it idols just fine and even in neutral i can rev the engine and everything just fine with no problem.. it only occurs when it is put into drive and i attempt to actually move.. Any sugestions?
