Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Dodge Neon Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
I have a 2000 Dodge Neon with 125,000 miles. For the past 6 months or so I have been having problems starting it and would oftentimes take me 5-10 tries starting it before it would finally catch and start up. I at one point had to replace the starter relay about 2 months ago. Today, my car was being very difficult to start and once it did finally start it almost sounded as if it was straining to keep running, really making a weak puttering noise, so I would turn the key off and try again and then it would run fine.
When I went to leave again today, the thing wouldn't start up at all and just kept turning over, it really made no attempt to start whatsoever. About 2 months ago the check engine light has been on and I went to AutoZone and had it checked out and they ran diagnostics on it and the error code was for the Oxygen sensor. They told me that it might deal with the leaness or richness of the gas.
Does this sound like a problem with the fuelpump, fuel filter, electrical problem or what?
have the same problem?
