No '95 Neon should have a carburetor, if yours does then there's the problem.Seriously though its a throttle body injector and is controlled by your on-board computer.So many things can cause an OBD-II type system to go awry that it's a waste of time to try to guess what the problem is.More than likely its one of the dozen of sensor's you have that help regulate fuel.You need an OBDII compatible scanner to pull codes & diagnose the problem.Sorry to say but your best bet is a good repair shop.

What device is used as the choke on an automobile?

Older, carburetor operated engines used a choke when you needed to start a cold engine. The choke would change the ratio of fuel to air by causing a slight vacuum above the fuel metering jets. After the engine had started, the vacuum was decreased, and once the engine was warmed up, the vacuum was released, allowing the carburetor to perform as efficiently as possible. The choke was a butterfly valve that was typically attached to the top of the carburetor. When the valve was open, there was no vacuum at the top of the carburetor, when the choke valve was closed, the vacuum was present when the engine was being started/warming up. Today's engines do not have a carburetor, instead they typically use fuel metering solenoids, referred to as injectors. Modern engines do not need a choke since the computer compensates for engine temperature and starting conditions, providing that extra fuel as needed. So basically, there is no choke on a modern automotive engine.

What does a car water pump do?

Why does a car suddenly started kangarooing unless you use the choke even when warmed up?

The choke will cause more fuel to be pulled into the engine and restrict airflow at the same time causing a rich fuel to air ratio. If your engine is cold it needs more fuel than it does when it is warm. Check for vacuum leaks that can cause too lean a mixture even after engine is warm. Also check proper calibration of this mixture through the carburetor, jets, ventures, etc. (optimal 14.7:1 for gasoline at sea level).

What is the function of car thermostats?

Cars run better when the engine is warm. Thermostats stays closed to prevent the water from going through the radiator to be cooled until the engine has warmed to the desired temperature. Then, it opens to allow the water to be cooled to prevent the engine from getting too hot.

How do you check to see if carburetor leaking down overnight Rochester Quadrajet?

If you have to pump accelerator alot before it will fire, you have a leak. If you loosen fuel inlet nut after engine is warmed up, you should get a "spray" of fuel, not a dribble. If you have a dribble, this would be a vac leak allowing fuel to drain back to pump.

The heat goes out when the car over heats?

the reason that the heat would cease to work when the car overheats is that the car is low on coolant. coolant is warmed by the engine as it transfers heat away from the engine. the heated coolant passes through heater hose and through the heater core. The blower motor blows air through the heater core warming the air and pushes the warm air through the vents in the car to you. the heater core is a small radiator in the dashboard of most vehicles. If there isn't coolant in the car, the engine becomes too hot thus the overheating. a side effect of this is that the lack of coolant means that coolant cannot get to the heater core to be warmed to warm you

What does the thermostat do in a 1994 Honda Accord?

Its job is to block the flow of coolant to the radiator until the engine has warmed up. When the engine is cold, no coolant flows through the engine. Once the engine reaches its operating temperature (generally about 200 degrees F, 95 degrees C), the thermostat opens. By letting the engine warm up as quickly as possible, the thermostat reduces engine wear, deposits and emissions.
