1996 Plymouth Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 112009

Neon 2.0L Sohc

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

Well my neon had been getting about 30 mpg, then it suddenly started getting 17-20 mph with out any warning at all. I've replaced all the "normal" stuff (both O2 sensors, thermostat, coolant sensor, ect) within the past 4-5 months but nothing has fixed this. I was getting a code for a shorted downstream O2 but that went away after i replaced it. I'm also getting a "low engine temp" code but when i check it the computer tells me its at 190+ degrees (i bought a computer reader). I'm not sure what else to do with this. Could this be a problem with my computer? I never drive this hard at all. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
