Usually it's because the system is low on freon. But sometimes it can be an electrical problem. start with the basics are the fuses ok both inside the car and under the hood? The fastest thing to do would be to use a test light and see if you have power down at the compressor clutch. If you don't suspect low system charge. If you do then either the compressor and ac are working and you've got a different problem like with the blower motor. Or the clutch is trying to engage but slipping because it's worn out (or the compressor locked up). Hope this gives you someplace to start.

no a 2001 dodge neon motor will not work in a 2000 neon

No, The neon was revamped in 2003, with updated engines and chassis changes. As a Chrysler mechanic, the 2000 dodge neon 2.4L DOHC is the best. That will fit in a 2001 also.

Yes. A throttle position sensor will work even if it is mounted up side down on a 2.0 dodge neon.

How many doors each car has no bearing on what fuel pump is used. This is based upon the engine ... if the engines are identical in EVERY respect, then they might be compatible.

if you can get a copy of the Haynes repair manual, Dodge Neon 2000 thru 2003. Book #30036 it can help with the answer.

With the correct computer, wiring harness, mounts, attachments, etc.

If the car has recently had work on the engine or tranny, check the mounts for proper placement of the bolts. If not, it might be an alignment problem.

my 2001 neon has a chip keywell iahev a 2001 dodge neon and mine does have a chip ignition. you would have to go to the dealer to get it made. If you did get a copy of the key made anywhere else it would only work to open the door it wouldn't work to start the car.

In a 1995-1998 the fuel tanks are the same, So yes you can interchange the tanks. while your at it you may as well change the fuel pump as well.

The neutral safety switch on the 1998 dodge neon is a non adjustable switch. You can adjust the shifting arms, if the shifter is far enough off, then the neutral may not work properly.

95 percent of the parts of your 2003 Plymouth Neon will work on the 2005 Plymouth Neon. Some of the interior parts will be different.

Start out by checking that the blower has both power and ground and if so then next check the a/c - heater controller...........

How come my speed odometer just drops and wont work and if i pound on the dash sometimes it will come back..

If the Neon's are both the same year and have the same engine type then the PCM should swap out ok. If the engines are different then the PCM may not work properly.
