Customer Question
It's a 2003 Dodge...

It's a 2003 Dodge Neon SE and it idles very high. How can the idle speed be adjusted?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?

150K, 2.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Neon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I do much of my own mechanical work. Not knowing how to adjust the idle however, I haven'y done anything yet.

Welcome to Just Answer my name is Mark.

The idle speed is computer controlled on your Neon so there are no adjustments available. In the event you have a high idle then it can be caused by things like a vacuum leak, a loose intake boot to the throttle body or even a small hole/tear in the boot. Also the throttle cable may be binding and not allowing the throttle to return to its idle position. One of these 3 issues will be causing your problem so check them out and please let me know if you need anything further.

Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
