97 dodge neon idles roughly?


Asked by Jul 09, 2014 at 02:48 AM about the 1997 Dodge Neon 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So today i just replaced the valve
cover gasket and spark plugs
because i found oil in the bottom
of them. My car still idles roughly
in park or while im stopped at
stop lights and give off white
smoke it just did this 2days ago.
Do i have a blown head gasket or
cracked block? Should i even pay
for a repair?

1 Answer


sounds like a bad head gasket- check the oil and the coolant- are they mixing together? a compression test will tell you for sure- the car will need to be fixed or else it is just scrap- or you can sell it cheap to someone who wants to take a project on-
