Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 132007

Neon 2.0L Sohc

  • Automatic transmission
  • 119,000 miles


i have been searching for the solution to my problem for a while and i have not heard of a solution to the problem. i have a 1998 neon 2.0 SOHC and when ever it is in park the idle is a little rough,but when i put into gear it starts bucking and jerking.and when i give it a little gas it smooths out and when i slow down and come to a stop it starts again.feels like its only running on 2 cylinders.i have been told that it might be a bad EGR valve or a rusty fuel rail that may be blocking one or more of the injectors. i have changed my plugs and wires and cleaned out the TB and a new air filter. but before i changed my plugs and wires the car bucked and jerked and had a very bad idle in park.but after the change idle in park is pretty good. so if any one else has had this problem and know what the fix is please e-mail me

Thanks Rob C.
