Models car won't start
1997 Other Plymouth Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
i have a 1997 neon that won't start . ihad it runnung and then after a few min. it sputtered and died and hasn't started since.. i was told it was the fuel pump so i replaced it and it is still doing the same thing . it will crank fine but it acts like it isn't getting gas or a spark............. please help
it sputtered and died and hasn't started since.. To determine what's missing fuel or spark do below
Get a carb cleaner and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light.
If both fuel and spark is present-check the valve and ignition timing, this will lead you to problems with compression and valves opening and closing at the wrong time
