    first off u can tell if the sub frame "cradle bushings are shot if u look under the car behind the front tires u will see a horse shoe type fre and where that frame meets the other body frame there is a bushing that goes into the large circlular and connect the sub frame to the body if these are pushed out more on top or bottom or u see a lot of cracks and wear in these u need to replace them i believe it a 18 mm nut lossen them up and pule the spacer and pull the old bushing out when u put in the new bushings make sure it tor it to 115lbs and repeat to the other side as well as on the back half too should be a total of four large sub frame bushing sine this model of intrepids have a three piece frame u can buy all four in a set at for about 145.00 for all four which is a great deal considering used ones are not an option and one will cost bourt 50.00 by its self

98 dodge intrepid with 198,000 miles will vibrate while accelerating between 55 and 60 mph

Check for worn inner cv joints on the cv axles. These cars also have engine mount problems that will let engine drop in engine cradle and cause undue stress on the driveline.

Changing out transmission mount on a 96 dodge intrepid

this is a fairly easy fix, youll need to undo the mount bolts and with a jack from the bottom or a cherry picker from the top lift up the ****** enough to wiggle the mounts out (or drop the ****** if they are top mount) you may also need need to loosen the motors mounts to allow everything to move as well as remove the half shafts from the transmission to allow movement. depends on how far you need to move it in order to wiggle the mounts out. i always reccomend buying a haynes or chilton repair manual. as it covers step by step how to perform alot of these repairs in simple step by step format (if you can bake a cake by direction then you can work on a car) and they are ussually around 10 to 15 bucks. not a bad investment. hope this helps! good luck

Cradle mount bushings

they are very hard to get apart and may require a torch to cut them out. new ones come in two halves (buy both halves) and install is a breeze.

Changing a 96 dodge intrepid rack bushing on crossmember

If you are talking about the inner tie rod bushings, the small round ones that go inside the tie rod, there is a metal plate with 2 holes that goes onto it and a fastener lock plate. The factory bushings can be hell to install. I recommend getting the Moog replacement kit which easily install and last longer in the hot oily environment they are in. Note: The fasteners are finely threaded and MUST me torqued properly and then locked with the new lock plate in the kit.

My car starts to shake after about 35-45 mph

rack and pinion is the steering wheel joint, so if the steering wheel shakes or handling has decreased, then i would say it is the rp. , also check the wear on the tires for uneven wear, it could be alignment, does the steering pull to one side? it could be motor mounts just find the bolts and check em wiht a torque wrench, also inspect mounting bushings as well. to check trans. give it alot of gas to get past 35-45 mph and the shaking should go away at higher speeds, if it doesnt then its the trans missing "third".

1997 intrepid vibrates slitely when idling

i think that your enginr mount bushings are wearing out and your feeling your motor shake slightly. nothing to worry about yet but would suggest getting fixed with the next year. it is a very simple and fast fix. i would say no more than $100 cost to fix.
