I have lost my hub cap, so an original one at the dealership is $125.
I bought cheap plastic replacement for $10, looks like crap.

I have a 2005 Neon and it has 42K miles on it. Within the last couple of months it has completely fallen apart. The CV joints has had to be replaced as well as the transmission had a leak in it. Now there is something in the electrical system that is draining the battery, or so I think. If I can get it crunk all of the light flicker and when I press the gas if the radio is on it pops real loud. When it does not crank it clicks and will not turn over. I am starting to wonder if there is anything good about this car.

Hey, I have had a 2003 dodge neon sxt for about a month now. when i bought it everything was running fine. well a week ago. it started to shift wrong. i was scared that it was the transmission. well i looked under my hood and my front top motor mount was broke so i bought a new one and replaced it and it ran great. for twenty minutes, then i got under the car becuase there was a really bad rattling sound and sure enough my bottom motor mount was broke so i just fixed that yesterday. well its stilll doing it and when i stick on the E brake and stick it in drive there is a real weird rattling sound right next to my timing belt or what ever that belt is called. does anyone have an idea on what it might be...thank you

fatboy88 check your shifter cables make sure there not out of adjustment. the is and adjustment on the base of the shifter just take out the center consol.

-Sounds similar to my problem: I have a 2000 Neon with a 2.0 and a three-speed automatic trans.The engineloses HP at load, either uphill, on the highway; or during hard accelleration. AC affects this, too. I found good fuel delivery (45PSI at full volume), and good compression, but low vacuum at idle, around 15 inches with the AC on (at idle) and 18 with the AC off. I can watch the vacuum gauge move up and down as I turn the AC on and off. I checked the timing and belt and put a new belt on, though it didn't need one and replaced the plugs but it did not help. I can't run this car up a any kind of grade without downshifting. -Anybody have an idea?

my 96 neoncar did that but it also reved up high when ac was turned on I changed the tps sensor and the air intake sensor (both sensors on throttle body) and that solved all the problems.

Call off the search! Thanks, everyone, for your help. I will save all of the tips and advice for future reference. As it turns out, the problem was indeed low compression, as well as low vacuum. The compression checker was cheap/faulty and when we put a gtood one on, it was obvious; cylinders 1,3 and 4 cranked at 120-130PSI and #2 cranked at 110PSI. The previous owner had the wrong plugs installed. They were too long and the piston most have collided with it because there was no ceramic left; not burned, just completely missing. The debris must have gotten into the cylinder and rings and scored things up pretty bad. This 2.0 SOHC engine is toast. Unless anyone knows of a cheap fix, I can drive it around indefinitely, but it will always give me trouble on hard accelleration and uphill climbs.

Default Common Dodge Neon Repairs and Problems

I have a 1995 Dodge neon.. I did not drive the car for 2 weeks because I needed to update the sticker on the car. Once I got in the car to drive it, it drove for about 1/2 a mil and gave out on me. I am not sure why, but it worked fine before those two weeks. I was told that it it the fuel pump, because gas was put in from the hood and it worked fine, and then shuts off after a period of time. I was told it was trash at first and that didnt help buying carburetor cleaner. I also changed the fuel filter yesterday and its still not craking up all the way. Boughta fuel pump relay and nothing. So I am going to buy a fuel pump but need to know how do i do it myself? A mechanic gave me a estimate for it for $600.
