i have a 95 dodge neon that spits a sputters down the road and i cant get over30 miles an hour, but i noticed that when i turn a corner it starts acting normal for awhile and then when i slow down or stop it starts up again, i also noticed that idling sounds irregular and some times dies while idling. i thought it might be water in the gas but that wasnt it. any body know why its doing that?

12 Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 key-on cycles (No biggie)
14 MAP sensor voltage too low (Check your wiring to the sensor)
31 Evap purge flow monitor failure or evap solenoid circuit (Make sure your gas cap is on tight)
41 Generator field not switching properly (No idea right now)
43 Multiple/ single cylinder misfire (Time to change your spark plugs with some new fresh copper Champions)
See this link for code 43 http://autorepair.about.com/library/a/1h/bl628h.htm
code 43 can also relate to bad plug wires.
This code can be broken into several codes if read on a proper OBDII reader and yes the 1995 Neon is OBDII compliant even though OBDII was not a requirement until 1996.
Ok, i got a head cover gasket and some spark plug wires and i went ahead and got a fuel filter too, but i see that the fuel lines are under pressure. how do i release the pressure and after im done does the pressure build bask up or do i have to do somthing there?
(1) Disconnect negative cable from battery.
(2) Remove fuel filler cap.
(3) Remove the protective cap from the fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail
(3) Disconnect negative cable from battery.
((4) Place the open end of fuel pressure release hose, tool number C-4799-1, into an approved gasoline
container. Connect the other end of hose C-4799-1 to the fuel pressure test port Fuel pressure will bleed off through the hose into the gasoline container. Fuel gauge C-4799-A contains hose C-4799-1.
Thats the way the FSM says to do it. I just move out of the way and press the test port to relieve pressure.
It you pull the fuel pump relay with the car running it will burn off some the pressure before it stops then bleed the rest off as above. Makes a bit less of a mess. If you do spill any gas around the engine, make sure itâ€™s dried up and well ventilated before attempting to start the engine.
