Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 168K miles
Okay so I have 2000 dodge neon with about 167,000 miles on it. And it use to have bad oil leaks. Well one day it like started shaking and shut off and I had it towed and the issue was a spark plug had oil in it. So I replaced some kind of seal and replaced all my spark plugs and got the car fixed. But then once it started after it was dead for about a week. It started sounding like a diesel. I got the oil leaks fixed and asked what the noise was that I was hearing. And they said something about my bottoms end hitting something because I let my car run to low on oil when it use to leak oil. And they said I should either get a new engine if I want it not to make that noise. Or just get a new car. The diesel noise only is when the car is warmed up at idle. But when I drive it sounds normal. And if you roll down the windows and listen as you drive it sounds normal. But when I come to a complete stop it goes back to sounding like a diesel when idling? What could be the problem where the people right about it? Currently it has no oil leaks and it always filled with oil.
have the same problem?
