Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual
OK, it is a 2.0 DOHC 5 spd manual. 1999 motor in it. The problem is ( sparadicly ) cylinders 2+3 dont fire from the coil pack. Have changed coil pack, PCM, and Cam sensor. Plugs + wires. This happens sparadically, one minute its fine. The next it starts spittin and spuddering and backfireing. I have a radar detector with pretty accurate voltmeter on it. Some of the time, the volts drop to 11.5-12.2 when it is idleing ruff. It will idle at 500 rpms barely. When you give it gas, you can hear it suck alot of air and it backfires and sputters when giving gas. Other times, it will idle fine, but experiences the same symptoms when accelerating. This symtoms present themselves unannounced, and suddenly, has happend while moving, or sittin still idleing. Overnight the car is fine, maybe even 2. But after 4 nights of sittin, the battery was dead as a door nail. I am not sure if this last symptom is really linked, I am sure it could be a ground issue, but I would like to figure out the not fireing issue first.
have the same problem?
