I have a dodge neon highline dohc 1997. When I push on the gas pedal it wants stall or act like its not getting any fuel. We have change the fuel pump three times, the coil and the alternator. The last fuel pump didn't even last a week.
oh ah if this help it just started becoming hard to start. When I turn the key over it dosn'tstart up quick like it use too. This started in the last week I assume it has some thing to do with the fuel prodlem.I also had tune up done. Please help I don't know where to look on!

Do you have a check engine light and when was the last tune-up?

The fuel pressure is okay why are you replacing the fuel pump?

The fuel pump went out agian and this is the now the fourth one I have replace on my car. So im guessing some else is causing the pump to keep going out. That why I have replace the relay swicth, the cam sensor, coil, I done a check on the electric running to the pump and every thing seems fine, I was just wondering if there is anything else I can check before my new pump comes in?I have check everything I can think of. Sorry for the last post I really stressing about this fuel pump. This car is my family only transportation right now. Thank you for help u guys are great.

Do a voltage drop on the fuel pump circuit-inspect wiring/connector/relay/ ground should not exceed 1.5volts
