OEM coil or after market. Neons do not seem to like aftermarket coil packs. I would check your engine ground, spark plug gaps, if it is an arftermarket coil pack go to a junkyard and get an OEM one. Try OEM wires if they are run of the mill replacement wires, check gaskets and leaks around the inta...

occasional demons wrote:I would compression check it before spending for an IAC valve.

How many miles?

Edit: 142,000, yeah, may want to check the overall condition, as part of the diagnostics.
Wouldnt bad compression affect the overall performance, it runs great once its going.

With that being said when i get to a stop the engine's rpm dip a little a...

I would continue to drive it for a little while before tracking down that code. Sometimes things like that "clear out" wehen it comes to the cats and exhaust when you put additives in. if it doesnt clear up in like a tank of gas or so then id start tracking. so yo uknow, if you turn the key on/off/...

So i ran a bunch seafoam through the vacuum and it helped it out. I drove it on the highway and got back into town and the CEL came on. I took to Advanced Auto and got it read and it was throwing a code for the cat. I told the guy that i seafoamed it and he suggested that some carbon got trapped in ...

A couple of issues

We just bought an 02 Neon 2.0 SOHC base for my wife yesterday and I've notice a couple of things. 1. The idle is rough it seems to shake the car a little, no CEL, once you give it some gas it smooths out. I did notice one of the 90* elbow pieces that connect the vacuum line to the back of the valve ...

I was very impressed that it is so clean for having higher miles and being over ten years old. The plan is to keep it stock, and use it for a daily driv...
