Sputtering and chugging


Asked by Apr 09, 2016 at 10:55 AM about the 1999 Dodge Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car sputters or chugs when it idles and when
giving it gas but once you reach your speed say 55
and hold there it stops. Replaced several parts to
fix but still does it. Any ideas?

Car was chugging then stalling, changed fuel pump, cleaned fuel rail, new plugs and wires, oil change, new O2 sensor, new coil pack, I think that's all that was done to it but it's still chugging but not stalling. Sounds like it's almost misfiring in the engine. Does that help?


Well it's back in the garage.
