#68 of 99 Have to push gas pedal hard to accelerate
Jun 25, 2009 (8:39 am)
I think the repair shop replaced the throttle position sensor and it took care of the problem for a few months and now its happening again. The gas pedal is hard to push down, but with enough force it will go. This only happens when in drive. The gas pedal operates fine when in park/neutral. Is it the tps they replaced? I can always call them, but what do you think?

I had the thermostat and a hose replace a couple of days ago. Now my car is idling high then low,
then high again really fast.

Is it possible that your AC is kicking in?

I WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF THE RUBBER HOSE FROM YOUR INTAKE TO YOUR AIR BOX IS LEAKING OR HAS A HOLE. I HAD THAT ISSUE
#74 of 99 Reasonable price for a 2002 Neon SXT

There is a bright yellow one sitting at a nearby Car lot,and I keep looking at it...should I be, and what would be a reasonable price for one? I drove one before and it sure was fun,although I did miss having cruise control.

Yeah man! I am having the same problem with the idling. When I'm at a light it goes down to about 600 rpm and sometimes it goes up and down. Can't figure it out!! I checked the hose with water and nothing. I've changed sensors even tried messing with the idle adjust screw and still nada.....! Now I'm looking into maybe changing out the pcm. The thing seems to run fine other than this prob. Fast little bugger!! I want to put in performance intake/ exhaust but would like to take the bugs out first.

#77 of 99 Leaking water from dashboard
May 25, 2010 (7:56 am)
I have a 2005 Dodge Neon and in the past few months everytime I start my car after it rains a big gush of water comes down from the passanger side dashboard. It sounds like a shower is starting.. or like a steamer. Its only getting worse. The amount of water that is coming out keeps increasing. It started out with just small drips now its like a river in my front seat. It only does it when you start up the car it doesn't just leak in when its raining. My mom actually has the same car as mine and hers has started doing it as well. Any ideas?
