The water pump went out in my 1997 dohc dodge neon sport and it sat for 4-5 months. We replaced the water pump and the car wouldn't start. We checked the timing and it's right. It gave codes for cam and crankshaft sensors so we replaced those. Gave ignition coil code so that was replaced. We also replaced spark plugs and wires. Compression is fine but the car still won't start. It tries to turn over but won't even start for 1 second. Now it's giving auto shutdown relay code but the relay tests fine. We don't know where to go from here. It only has 77,000 miles and was running great before the water pump went out while I was driving it. It keeps giving one code after another. We fix one thing and another thing goes out. I love my car but I am thinking of selling it to relieve the frustration! This is the 3rd Neon I've owned and I've never had this problem before. It has a half a tank of gas so I know it's not that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
