Would need to see it, would guess valve cover. I had the same problem with my 95 neon, if you take the valve cover off (you might need a new gasket, or you can use "red silicone the heat resistant stuff") there should be on the 4 spark plug tubes 4 black plastic seels in my case 2 were broke not a big job at all i just went to a junkyard and got a couple seels for free actually. anyways that is what MY problem was. my valve cover was a little beat up as well a used one from the junkyard was only 20 bucks. you can use any SOHC neon valve cover from 95-99 for your car. or DOHC if you have a DOHC. PS. if one or more of those seels broke try to find as much of the debris as possible around the valve springs I just used pliars to get the broken pieces out. good luck!
Fix it, or have it fixed. Have it diagnosed properly to know what needs fixing. The main possibilites are failed glow plugs, the glow plug harness could have issues or the glow plug controller.
Try you ignition switch my 1998 accord done the same thing and that fixed it
I have a kx 250 dirt bike that keeps fouling plugs on start up. I rejetted it but that still didn't solve the problem. What could be the Problem?
Usually this means you need rings
check the coil
bad plugs or wires i just had this problem to or it could be a leak in the exhaust
There could be so many problems. Batery, starter, alternator, serpentine belt, no spark... the list is endless. spark plugs? spark plugs?
could be core plugs between engine and transmission(freeze plugs)
India is not the problem, it is ear plugs
I don't know the answer but i have the same problem. I have cleaned all the egr system, changed the throttle body gasket, changed plugs, wires, cap and rotor button. I still havent got it fixed. There is a vacuum motor on the very back of the motor, behind the bpt valve, and I'm curious as to if it could be the problem. If anyone has the answer, PLEASE, type it. This has really got me confused to what it could be.
sounds like you need to change the plugs and wires
Most likely a problem with your fuel system, fuel isn't getting into the cylinders and firing, this could be caused by dirty fuel injectors or a broken fuel pump. It could also be a problem with the distributor or spark plugs, your plugs might need a change.
the problem could be the spark plugs, coils, wires, timing or alot of other thing s but try that
try the moduel
Replace the spark plug wires. Also, be on the lookout for something that could cause a lean condition such as vacuum leaks and fuel flow restrictions.
Most common cause of that is, Bad spark plug/plugs or plug wires, I think you will find your problem in that area.
the seal on the valve cover needs to be replaced. my 2000 neon had the same problem. I replaced the seals in the valve cover and it fixed the problem. The kit came with the seals for the spark plugs.
Worn spark plugs would cause mis-firing or non firing cylinders, both are no good for the engine, replacing the plugs may stop the knock (Could also be a different problem) But you should replace spark plugs as soon as possible.
Generally speaking, when an engine "misses" (fails to fire on all cylinders,) there is a failure in the ignition system. Since most factory ignition systems lose power at higher RPMs, flaws in the wiring or spark plugs will become aparent. Given the age of your car, replcement of the plugs and wires will probably solve the problem. Note: If you note excessive dirt or grease on the spark plugs when you remove them, the problem may be minor oil leak in the engine. If these are not fixed, the problem will return when the new plugs foul up.
Could be the ignition coil, distributor, distributor cap & rotor or even spark plugs and wires.
A car can backfire and die if the spark plugs are bad. The car could also have a problem with the timing or the catalytic converter .
There are a few things that can cause this problem. The spark plugs could be bad, the distributor cap could be off, the spark plug cables or boots could be damaged.Ê
check the coils .they might be bad I'd try plugs/wires and fuel filter first. If it backfires when revved up while running rough, probably a spark problem, plugs, wires, or coils. But could also be a fuel problem (filter or water in gas).
check for spark at plugs sounds like a ign problem
could be as simple as burnt spark plugs i would think it would run worse with a burnt piston but if its not smoking or anything the pistons should be fine so i would start with the plugs
