I am a owner of this 1998 Dodge Neon.. Yes, I said it. It was my dream car when I was an teenager. Now I truly wish I didn't own one....

My car just don't want to start when I want it to, it makes a clicking noise when attempting to start it, it dies in the middle of the road and shows the oil light and the brake light, it over heats and has no power when it's hot out side, and smells like brake fluid all the time.

It will die also if I try to turn on the AC which doesn't if work...

I think it may be my starter. I am unable to turn on my car. I also hear clicking. I have had numerous problems with this car! I have had my fans fail, my speedometer stop working, my car overheat, leaks with both the oil and the transmission ......
