My 1999 dodge neon won't start

Asked by GuruWJ8ZH Jun 03, 2018 at 07:39 PM about the 1999 Dodge Neon Sport Coupe FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1999 dodge neon will turn over but not start, it
sounds like there's no spark, it also turns over
better when it's off the ground. Any ideas?

Did you check the timing/belt to see if it jumped or broke?

It's not broke, but how do i know if it jumped?


You need to set the motor up at TDC and check the timing marks,when you turn it over manually watch to see if the belt goes really slack.
