I have a 2000 Dodge Neon with 105,000 miles on it that I recently bought and it has run fine for me up until now. It had been getting around 28 miles to the gallon but now seems to be getting around 20. Also, the idle speed is really high when the car is in park or neutral. And finally, I have found that when I first start the car it will stall if the outdoor temperature is below freezing and I put the car in reverse. Mostly this happens when I back up and then take my foot off of the gas. Are all of these things part of the same problem or did the dealer pull a fast one on me? So far I have had the car into a shop and have spent a considerable amount of money on trying to troubleshoot the problem. They have also replaced the intake manifold and the idle regulator.
