I've been having the same problem.But I think I may know what they problems is.I don't know the terms for all car parts so forgive my ignorance. I bought a used neon and it would stall and die out on the road and I would have to let it sit for along time to get it running again. I've change fuses spark plug wires and the sparkplug coil box bolted on the top of the engine. I've been told that it can be the coilbox that go out if the engine gets to hot. They are about 100 bucks at autozone. That didn't fix the issue for me though. There is part of the wiring harness that runs along the the air filter box and across the front of the fuel rod. if you move that around it engine will stall. I had to remove the cheap plastic cover on the fuel rod.Then I had to peel off some of the insulation tape zip tie the wires when the car was idling ok. I popped out those U shaped electrical line holder on the air filter box and used the hole to zip tile the electrical line under the airfilter box so it wont move. Until I can the electrical part fix or get rid of this car it seems to help. So start up the car move the electrical wire around nect to the air box and the fuel rod it it start to chug zip tie it so it won't move when your driving otherwise you will have to hitch hike down the road. Because when the engine is moving from shifting the wiring is moving around causing the car to suddenly die out or lose power when driving. Once again I an not a car expert but I messed around with my heap until I found out that was the problem.

sounds like your catalyst converter is plugged up. especially if when you are driving the transmission shifts funny and you can only go around 25-30MPH.can verify with a vacuum gauge which is the more economically correct way. the other you would need a exhaust back pressure gauge which runs around $350
#88 of 170 98 Dodge Neon Stalls
Jun 26, 2009 (2:50 pm)
I have a 98 Dodge Neon (SOHC) that stalls right after starting (approx. runs for 5 secs.). Once stalled, it will not start for at least an Hour. Fuel pump is pushing plenty of fuel (maybe too much?).
Engine Codes are clean (no errors found). When I removed the small Purge control hose from the top of the throttle body - the Car does not stall. As a matter of fact, I was able to drive it into the Garage up a slight incline. After sliding the hose back in place - stalling occurs again.
My initial though was fuel pressure regulator. Any/all advice would be greatly appreciaited.
Just checked Engine Codes - no errors.
Fuel line pumps ample fuel while turning key.
Plugs are fouled when engine stalls (removed and checked).

This might sound stupid... but, is there any way your transmission cable may have come of. (lose bolt?)
#92 of 170 stalling on 97 neon
Oct 10, 2009 (8:30 am)
Got a neon that will stall at idle or when you take foot off the gas.
If I start the car and bring down the rpms to say 1000 and hold it there it seems to work for a short while this car is shutting off when I.m driving as well only when I take my foot off the gas.
no service engine light comes on.
car only has 56k on it
any help on this would be appreciated

You seem to be okay as long as the tack holds up and you keep it at a grand. You might try advancing the timing to idle at a grand.

Not actually, anything someone can think up makes sense to me considering we are dealing with Neon's.
