2002 Dodge Neon

My daughter's 2002 Neon is having a problem - when stopped at light it hesitates and sometimes stalls. When you are backing up and turning the wheel
hard it will sputter and try to stall. Any suggestions?

Is the check engine on? When was the last time it had a tune up with a good set of plug wires?

The check engine light is not on - the car was in a wreck - my brother, who is the collision repair teacher at the vo-tech school bought and fixed the car - it has only 55,000 miles on it. Didn't think it needed a tune-up yet.

Connect scan tool and drive until it gets hot, do a couple of decels from about 45mph down to about 35mph then see if you can monitor a misfire. If the vehicle is running this bad it should set a code
