According to the mileage your neon may need a basic tune up; i.e, spark plugs and wires, fuel filter, transmission flush. 90k+ miles you are in need of a timing belt replacement.

Your vehicle needs air, spark and fuel to run. If any of these are not performing adequately, then you can have a run problem.
When was the last time you had a tune up? Bad spark plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter...any one of these could be the problem.
Your best bet is to have a technician diagnose the problem before it gets worse and becomes a more expensive repair or the vehicle stops running all together. Good luck.
