a google seach comes up with this: http://www.fixya.com/tags/p0303_p0304/cars/dodge/neon personally think that high maintenance items should be suspected...coils do not go bad by themeselves...power to the coil may get rusted tho...personally have changed the oxygen sensor...then the check engine light will go off~...those are some hefty codes tho...system GROUND...assure the battery can get to the brain...the wire that connects to the battery should be looked at...sounds like it just could be a wirebrush at the battery fix...no money needed...tho an oxygen sensor if you've got 30-60,000 miles might be considered an maintenance item~ so clean the battery connections...especially the ground to the ECU~

2003 in the "rust belt" could probably be the concern!~

all of those faults all at once? think there is a common denominator...and that is of an electrical nature...reconsider cleaning all grounds...perhaps with brake cleaner to assure good connections...would be SAD if you spend money solving all those faults when this might be a simple power problem...that's my two cents worth...take it or leave it!~

The po300 codes are all basically the same causes. The po344, and po456 are separate issues. Camshaft sensor problems, and emissions issue.
