What should I try to replace next to get my car running

Asked by Aug 18, 2016 at 09:21 PM about the 2005 Dodge Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car just died on me yesterday! It has
been acting up for a while, stalling, missing,
acting like it is not getting gas. The check
engine light was coming on and said i
needed a cam sensor. Got it. Light came on
again. Said I needed an oxygen sensor got it.
Then it started running descent, only
messing up every once in a while. Then
yesterday it died. It cranks but won't start. I
got a brand new computer, cam sensor, and
crank sensor today and put them on but
same issue! We bypassed the spark plugs
and figured out it is firing once every once in
a while! Please help me try to figure out
what is going on. Only vehicle we have and
don't have the money to buy all kinds parts
that don't fix the problem. Oh, and I replaced
the coil pack.

all that ??? so hows the fuel/pressure/filter now...all good?

It is getting gas as far as we know! Today we are going to get a fuel pump because a while back it was really loud, you could hear it over the engine running sometimes but I don't understand why it isn't firing! Now we did get the computer from a junkyard but they make sure that it is working when they take it out but all the other stuff we bought brand new, the crank sensor and cam sensor! The other issue is it is at the store near my house and getting it towed home today! Just need some kind of advice on what it could be. We are lost and don't know what to do next! My issue is, when we try to start it, it's only throwing one little spark every once in a while!
