The important thing now is, Do you really have gas in it? Check the fuel rail pressure and get that taken of, then check all grounds pertaining to the gauge assembly in the tank, and the dash grounding...accordianman

SOURCE: 97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

SOURCE: 92 Dodge Dynasty wont start no spark no fuel

If there is no spark, then there is no signal to crankshaft position sensor. If no power to fuel pump, check relay and power to it.

If you are not getting power to either of them.Then igniitn module or ECM is faulty.

SOURCE: replaced timing belt, but van will not start?

It is possible that this is a zero clearence engine. Meaning that the valves can hit the pistons if the cam timing is off or the timing belt breaks. I would strongly suspect that you have bent valves. This can easily be diagnosed with a compression test. If valves are bent the repair will require at least a rebuilt cylinder head and gaskets. It is also possible that there could be piston damage as well. The reason it is not starting is it has no compression due to bent valves.

My 98 dodge avenger wont start i think its the starter pleas help


Sounds like the solenoid not grounded if you try to start and all it does is click then the solenoid is not grounded and if it's built on to the starter which it might be you might have to replace the starter. Try cleaning the wires going to the starter before you buy a new they may be corroded.
