Having problems with your 2002 Dodge Neon ?
I have a 2002 neon 5 speed and when I take my foot off the gas pedal the car jerks and surges what could cause this? It is worse at higher speeds and it causes the steering wheel to vibrate. I have replaced power steering pressure switch and power steering pump, had alignment checked, had axles checked, and tie rods and motor mounts. I have had this problem for close to a year and no one seems to know what it is please help.
Your said the car is a 5 speed does the Clutch grab near the floor or when then the pedal is just about all the way out if its out of adjustment or need to be replaced when you let off the gas it causes the engine to surge to keep from stalling
The car is fitted with a fuel cutoff switch,so anything over 1800 revs no fuel is going through the system when you take your foot off the gas.(more noticeable in lower gears)so you will feel a ****/surge as the car stalls/takes off,stalls/takes off.it could be that the torque of the engine is lifting/dropping the front of the car as it does this and is making your car feel awful.also dirty injectors would not help this situation.try redexe/[email protected] can to 1/2 tank.may help.(this may NOT be the case but as several customers have the same symptoms with different cars,im guessing that IT MAY HELP a little.)
