I let my Neon sit outside during the winter for ~6 months andtoday was the first time I had it back on the road. I gave some peculiar symptoms:
1. Every time I stepped on the gas (soft or hard) there is a noticible "lag" and drop in power for the first cm of the gas pedal.
2. It sounds and feels like there are 3 of 4 cylinders firing so I though the gas had turned into water. I proceeded to add dry gas and some octane boost. Drove it for about and hour to an hour and a half.
No change. Except this, the check engine light came on and remained solid for the last ten minutes of the drive.
Questions, comments, criticisms welcome.
have the same problem?
