Engine Performance problem
2001 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Automatic 278000 miles
Vehicle is a 2001 Neon 2 Liter 16V SOHC 278,000 miles.
Runs relatively well I guess I mean it runs. Recently began having problem of car fells like it wants to stall while idling. Stop at traffic light or stop sign especially with AC running. Stalled once in neighbor's approach. Had vehicle tune up. Month and a half stalled again. Had dealership replace idle air control motor, clean throttle body and fuel injection service, oil change and trans fluid/filter change. Couple weeks after repair vehicle stalled at stop with AC running. Vehicle runs but has low idle and feels like it wants to stall when AC is on. Been turning off AC and/or vent when stopped at stop sign or stopping in traffic to try preventing stall. Have stopped a few times with air on low and did not not stall but engine seemed like it wanted to.
Seems to perform most poorly when idling or going slow 25 miles or less - street driving. Beginning to wonder if accelerator cable isn't performing properly like loose or worn and causing incorrect fuel flow. Does the acceleration cable and pedal just give the engine fuel or does it also control amount of fuel flow?
have the same problem?
