: the contact stated the vehicle stalls intermittently. This happens at various speeds and under normal driving and road conditions. However, it happens mostly when the vehicle is shifted from third, fourth or fifth gear. The vehicle has been to the local dealership numerous times, they are unable to duplicate the problem. The starter has been replaced 3 times, the entire wiring harness was replaced, the O2 sensor was replaced and the camshaft sensor and bolts were replaced. Although, these replacements were replaced the problem still exits.

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,800 miles
While driving at 70 mph, the consumer attempted to exit a freeway and the vehicle lurched and made a loud noise. The vehicle was pulled into a parking lot and smoke began to emit from the hood. Consumer turned the key off, but the vehicle continued to run. The fire department arrived and disconnected the battery cables. At that time the smoking ceased and the engine shut down. The consumers vehicle continued to run rough and lurch forward, the check engine light would come on, , the vehicle would run with the key out of the ignition, and when the door was inadvertently shut, the door would lock. The dealer could not find anything wrong with the vehicle. The consumer was told that the fuel was delivered at a rich combustion level. The service dealer replaced the ab/master relay and the power train control module. (fuel was being delivered to the cylinder at excessive amounts and with the key out of the ignition)

While driving 45 mph a loud ticking noise was heard coming from underneath the hood of the vehicle. Consumer drove the vehicle to the dealer for inspection, however the mechanic could not duplicate or resolve the problem. The headlights had gone out while the consumer was driving the vehicle, the wheel needed to be replaced, there was a problem with the brake line in the front, the wheel bearing was broken in half, the fog lights had gone out, there was a roaring sound when the vehicle was in motion, there was a whirling sound in the engine which would get worse when accelerated, the rotor/pads rusted, the steering pulled to the left, and when slowing down, the steering wheel would shake.
