2000 plymouth neon

Asked by Apr 06, 2016 at 04:02 PM about the 2000 Plymouth Neon 4 Dr Highline Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 plymouth neon with a 4th
cylinder misfire. So far I have changed valve
cover, plug wires as well as plug. I have
checked compression 3rd was a little off but
4th cylinder was way low. After changing
value cover my plugs have been oil free and
clean. I checked all oils as well they are
clean. I am running out of ressons out side
of the thought of having a blown piston and
am hoping for the best. This is my only car
and I need it for a while.

With low compression on the number 4 cylinder you can have a miss fire. I would suspect a bent or burned valve, broken valve spring, blown head gasket, piston or ring damage or other causes.
