1996 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 135000 miles
This problem has been a plague for the better part of two years. At that time my car started hitching (literally hiccuping down the road) as though it were completely losing power. The Check Engine Light came on and was throwing a throttle position sensor error. A long diagnostic later my mechanic said "not the sensor", it was the computer. I replaced that and it ran fine. For a bit. It started up again, the exact same problem. Since then I've had a myriad of "solutions", including but not limited to: the starter, the crank sensor, the throttle sensor itself, the mass air flow sensor, the throttle position sensor and I even went through the wiring harness and rebuilt the thing. Yet the ghost is still in the car. A potentially related problem is that my console sometimes stops functioning entirely (no speed, throttle, anything). I've also replaced the console so I think I'm chasing a short somewhere, but I could be off base. Where do I go now?
have the same problem?
