Default 95 neon spitting and sputtering

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?

you may have multiple issues. if tis the fuel filter that could couse the over 30 issue but water could explane the normal turn. check your fuel cap it may have a vac issue

Is your CEL on? If so, check the codes and get back to us with the results. If you don't know how to pull the codes, read the 1st Gen FAQ thread up top, it's in there.

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 41
http://autorepair.about.com/library/a/1d/bl071d.htm
Check the Battery voltage to determine if it's charging properly.

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.

The 95's are OBDII compliant, just not "fully" compliant.

I changed the spark plugs no real change but i noticed that one of the spark plugs had heavey oil on it does that mean the piston is cracked?

Inspect your coil pack and wires for any wear and/or cracks.

Oil on your plugs is probably your spark plug tube seals gone bad. It's an easy fix and a valve cover gasket kit costs about $20.

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?
