tune-up up on basic diagnosis and engine tuning in a manual... also, try a can of injector cleaner in the tank, and listen for hissing vacuum leaks while the engine is running(under the hood)/// read up on all of this... everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the REFERENCE section...make copies of the right sections...good luck :)

Does the gas still run with the car on neutral?

Yes. When an automobile's transmission is in neutral, gasoline is still being pumped from the vehicle's tank to the engine. Usually cars are put in neutral while not moving, in which case the term "idling" would be used to describe the engine's activity. When idling, the energy created from the internal combustion engine is converted into electricity via the alternator to power accessories like air conditioning pumps and fans.

If you're saying the starter won't engage occaisonally, try moving the shifter lever between park and neutral, then back to park. If that makes it start, you probably have a neutral lockout switch that is adjusted wrong.

Can you add miles to your car by idling?

You can add engine wear but the reading on the odometer will not change since the sensor for the odometer is located at the output end of the transmission or transaxle, and therefore only gives a reading when the vehicle is moving (or when the wheels are spinning, if you are on ice or up on a hoist). So, no, you will not add mileage by idling.
