#25 of 169 2002 dodge neon rolling in park
Jan 17, 2007 (3:07 pm)
I was wanting to know if anybody could tell me why my neon rolled in park? On saturday we had went to my mother and father in laws home to look at the brand new 2007 truck they had gotten that day. I parked my car pulled up the emergency brake and left it running to get out and look at the truck. The car stayed there in park for a good 5 minutes. Then I went back to the car to get my 3 kids out of the car and go in the house. As soon as I turned off the ignition the car started rolling and hit my father in laws truck. It drug me and my 6 year old son down the driveway. We are ok,but my car is having a transmission tear down now. I was just wondering if somebody could tell me some possibilities as to why this happened. The car was in park with the emergency brake up the whole time I am 100% sure of that.

We just spent hours looking for this problem and it wound up being the crank sensor. Relatively inexpensive and easy to change, it is down by the fuel filter, only one bolt and one plug. However it did break when taking it out so had to drill a small hole in the center and put in a screw to extract it.
#27 of 169 1998 Ply Neon stalls when making right turn

This sounds crazy but my 1998 plymouth neon has recently started this unique stalling problem. Car was recently tuned up (new wires, plugs, gaskets, etc.)and was running fine for a few weeks. However, it now seems to stall out when making a right turn. Runs just fine when going straight or left. Has anyone ever experienced this?
#28 of 169 Coil problem?
May 27, 2007 (11:14 am)
I have a '96 Neon that recently developed a problem. It runs fine until I have driven a few miles, then it begins to miss, "bumps" (much like a bad plug). This gets progressively worse. Then, if I slow down, turn a corner, etc. it completely dies. After sitting for a few minutes, it finally can be started again. "Service Engine" light stays on. It coded as a "Primary Coil" problem. Coil was replaced. It still acts up. This tends to be worse when it is in the '80's outside (?). Fuel line pressure checked out okay. Any ideas? I need the car! Particularly for the gas mileage.

Craig53, I have a 96 Neon and I am currently experiencing the same problem. My coil and cam sensors have been replaced the problem is still there. There are no codes that register. It's going into the shop tommarow again for the 3rd time. It sounds like the same problem you have, have you gotten in figured out yet.

Hey oilcan3, actually I had the car at the mechanic's a third time. He removed the code and has had me drive it for a week or two with the new coil. I don't drive it over 55-60. I have driven it to work a few times (16 miles each way)with no recurrence of the problem so far. This problem seems to occur with no regularity. Very frustrating. I changed the air filter and was going to change the PCV, but couldn't find it. I wish you luck with your car. Let me know if you find out anything. I'll do the same.

I don't think Donald Trump could have afforded to keep my 95 Neon running much longer than I did exhausting my financial resources taking it to 65K miles!!

No. Have not yet determined the problem. Had a diagnostic test but the readings detected no fault codes nor any during the drive test. I continue to drive car occasionally and it still stalls out periodically. Crazy, but only happens when making right hand turns and not accelerating thru the turn. Please let me know if you ever find out the reason. Thanks.

After several more incidents I believe the problem may have been fixed. The last time (about two weeks ago) the thing stalled out 6 times in about 2 miles! The mechanic replaced the Crank Sensor and I have driven it for a week now with no stalling, no hesitation and no Warning Lights. Hopefully this is it. You may want to try this.
