2001 dodge neon wont start


Asked by Mar 12, 2016 at 04:23 PM about the 2001 Dodge Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm praying that I can find someone who
could give me a better answer than me
continue to replace parts on my car. A
month ago my power steering went out on
my way to work. I drove it like that until I
was able to replace it and when I did it
ended up being the tension pulley so I
replaced that as well. In the meantime
between all of this there was a couple of
times I had trouble getting it started but I
just gave it gas and it ended up starting.
After I got the whole power steering
tensioner pulley and belt taken care of got it
started once and within like 20 seconds it
died and now I can't get it to start. I've
replaced the coil pack and the ignition
switch and tested the spark none of those
are the problem. So I don't have money to
keep up with this and buying a new part
hoping that's it and it's not. If anyone has
ever seen or had this horrible problem with
a neon advice would be greatly appreciated.

Possibly fuel pump not good filter in tank as well had same problem 2000 neon


Have checked that and it's all good! I'm so stressed out! Ready to blow it up


Have you had the chip reader around the ignition checked out my problem was the antennae around the ignition switch failed . If not that then what about neutral safety switch or clutch engagement switch?
