1999 plymoth neon 3rd cylinder misfire


no. 3 plug, wire or coil pack. Remove the plug wire one inch from the plug using a properly insulated plug wire tool with the engine running, if you hear a tick, tick sound then it's the plug if you don't hear a tick tick sound it means it's the wire or the coil.

Engine lopes at idle and check engine light on


In this case having the check-engine light is a good thing. Take the car to AutoZone and have them scan the computer for codes - they do it for free, whereas a shop will charge up to an hour's labor. Have them give you a printout of the codes, and post them here as a comment/reply. I can help you define them and see what needs to be done.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.


It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive

Disconnect battery (-) for about 10-15 seconds. It will come back if problem not cured, you know that right?

1998 Dodge Neon engine died when valves started knocking and car will not restart.


Check the engine for compression. Your head gasket may be shot. I have a 97 that had a similar problem, and we did the head gasket, car runs fine now. Prior to doing the gasket mine wouldn't start at all.

Do a compression test.

Horn makes a ticking sound when I push it


You will probably find the horn hiding behind your grille and up from the bumper. Look well because they love to hide. Good luck

Tick noise


if its a constintly ticking noise while driving sometimes it can go and fade away, this is due to your tappets or also lifters are worn out or not getting oil to them due to your oil pick up, and this will also give you the engine light and the engine light wil stay on all the time till the problem is fixed

did you do the engine TIMING as per the manufacturer ?
Replacing timing belt does not assure exact TIMING as specified

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
