One week ago I bought a 2000 Dodge Neon ES. It had a rebuilt engine in it,
that had only 44,000 miles on it, and ran pretty good. The dealer supposely
"fixed" the heater core, so it was good to go. It drove excellent for a week,
until this last weekend it started having problems. On my way to work, my
speed all of a sudden started decreasing, and when I tried to push the pedal
to go, it had no power at all to it. The check engine light came on and I
pulled over. The check engine light popped up with the code for a bad coil #1.
...It took a few tries of starting to get home, and my dad replaced the coil
with a new one. Then, last night, he test drove the car to make sure it
worked, and it started jerking back and forth again and lost all gas power to
go. Plus, it almost overheated and was glowing red under the hood. We took it
back to the dealer to have them look at it. But, what is wrong with this car
and why is this all happening?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! THANKS
Um we did do carfax and there hadn't been anything wrong with it when anyone
had it. it had been a rental car so thats why they had rebuilt the engine...

my guess is a wire issue, get hots, open ciruit,, goes dead, if it was a
95 or 97 , the ground wire to coil, cam and crank would go bad , go
dead,, get it hot wiggle wire see if it cuts off, if the engine has been
rebuilt,, the harness has been off
