1995-1999 Dodge & Plymouth Neons

What could be wrong when an automatic 1997 Dodge Neon shakes and sputters or or stalls when in first gear or reverse when cold but is fine after it warms up?

Could be your oil is old or too thick. I would try a tune-up and oil change before looking elsewhere.

If it's an automatic, you may have a sticking solenoid INSIDE the transmission.

It is a safety feature. You must pull in the left brake lever fully to engage reverse, if you try to put it into reverse without doing so, the engine will kill.

there is a number of things that could cause this, if your check light is on it's prob a sensor. most of the time it's a mass air flow or O2 sensor.

When my 2002 SC2 sputters, stalls, "Service Engine" light comes on, I dump a can of injector cleaner in the tank and it runs fine and the light goes out. Can't say for sure that's your problem, but it is a small enough investment to try it out. Good Luck.

If you mean each time you engage car in any gear forward or reverse & it immediately stalls - you have a bad torque converter. Start engine, put foot on brake, put car in NEUTRAL, if it DOES NOT stall, but it does stall if you repeat this test when you put car in drive or reverse = bad torque converter - It's called a "stall test"

check your idle controle moter. it is probably crudded up or not wotking.

Check the computer diagnostic codes. You can usually borrow, rent or buy a code scanner from most auto parts retailers.

A car might stall when shifting from park to reverse if the idle is set too low. It is also possible that the engine stalls because it is not fully warmed up before shifting from park to reverse.

There is no specific collective noun for stalls, in which case a collective noun suitable for the circumstances is used, for example a row of stalls, a group of stalls, a bank of stalls.

IF IT IS A MANUAL TRANSMISSION CAR, THEN IT SOUNDS AS IF YOUR CLUTCH IS BAD/WORN OUT.

Is your kickstand up? Some bikes have an automatic shutoff that will not allow the bike to go if the kickstand is down.

Possible failed torque converter, it will be worth the money to have someone look at it who is good with transmissions.

User Avatar

is this car an automatic? take car to an automatic transmission shop. sounds like the torque converter is about worn out

Give us more info like the year, make, model and engine info. Do you have a check engine light illuminated? If so what are the codes? Have you tested for fuel pressure and fuel flow? Have you replaced the fuel filter?
