Having problems with your 1997 Dodge Neon ?

1997 Dodge Neon DOHC

\015 Brian,\015\012 \015\012I did investigate the message you sent previously. \015\012I checked out your answer yesterday evening and I found out the scan tool you are talking about is a much more costly one then I have for my use.\015\012Is there away to reset the autos computer with out the unit you are talking about?\015\012The meter I have is called INNOVA 3100a. I called the MFG and was told no this meter didn't have that ability. It is a lot like the one that AutoZone uses.\015\012\015\012\015\012Thank you \015\012\015\012ChrisMue\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Neon cuts off when the gas pedal is released and runs good when the gas pedal is pushed
OK,
\015\012
\015\012It was hard to understand from my point of view, what you had looked into. I am sure that it was hard for you to figure out which responses were worth looking into as well.
\015\012
\015\012Anyway,
\015\012
\015\012I would try to remove the negative battery cable for about 15- 20 minutes.
\015\012
\015\012This should clear any codes present, and reset the comp.
\015\012
\015\012Additionally, I believe that it is possible that if the belt broke while running, there could be some valve damage, and this could cause the poor running condition that you are experiencing.
\015\012
\015\012A compression test could help identify this.
\015\012
\015\012Best of Luck!
