      Wasn't sure if I was going to make it home from work. Neon running rough and a little low on power going up hills.. I think the problem started last night when i left work. Had to accelerate pretty good as I made a left to get into the traffic coming up the road. No problem, but then a short while later it seemed like it was momentarily dropping power. Did it a few times. Forward to today. Ran really rough when I started out to work. Didn't get far when engine light starts flashing and barely any power. Went back home. Checked for codes -nothing. Disconnected battery anyway to reset whatever... It improved a lot, but not 100%. Still trying to get to work, what else could I do quick? Had part of a can of throttle body cleaner - fed it that. Put a new air filter in... Test drove pretty smooth. :thumbsup: Drove to work with no problem. :thumbsup::thumbsup: Them come home and it's rough. :soapbox:

                    Fuel pump/fuel filter.
                    Low fuel pressure wont set a code,but it causes longer injection pulse width. Coolant temp sensor going out of range,
                    Forcing it rich.

                          Mine did the same thing once. I changed the throttle control module and seemed to fix it. But last night it would not go into reverse right but I did get it to back out of the space. But going down the road it would not shift into drive. I shut it off and started it again and it ran perfect! Frank? What do you suggest here?

                              Maybe you can get the rioters there and they will steal it all then do a insurance claim?

                              Neon too? There is a switch on top of transmission,prndl switch.
                              They can go bad,and tcm doesent know what gear its in. Also a solenoid pack on the front of transmission,they are prone to failure as well. Scan tool is necessary to determine whats going on.
                              The pt cruiser i bought cheap supposedly needed a transmission. Trans shop diagnosed it. I found the controller in the fender had corroded through and water/road salt got in it and killed it. $40 for a used one and it worked perfectly until my daughter destroyed the car.

                                There you go!
                                Believe it or not my small town had a protest the other night. We locked down and activated the rifle team. and placed guards at the front entrance and closed the back entrance. Dang what is the world coming to?

                                First time since I have worked there that the rifle team has been activated
