Changed a camshaft senor on an 05 dodge neon and its still having the same

camshaft sensor.

There could be a host of things causing your issue, look for a vacuum leak around the throttle body, check the hoses, clean the throttle body and check the throttle body sensor, you could have a bad MAP sensor, clogged catalytic converter or bad O2 Sensors. Clogged injectors....

Wiggle the lowest cluster of wires about 6 inch away from where the it plugs into pcm right where it's not stiff (broken wire )
