Having problems with your 2005 Dodge Neon ?
I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.
It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive
Check the oil level, and if it's been a while since a oil and filter change, I would recommend getting it changed and if the car has alot of miles on it, use a grade of oil designed for high miles. Keep an eye on your oil level. Make sure it's not dropping ..
