2002 dodge intrepid 2.7L

Im at my wits end with this car! Check engine light came on and car acted like it didnt have any power at all, replaced alternator and got a new battery, car started right up but after 3 days same problem all over again. Dont have the money to go to a mechanic but I'm ready to pull my hair out over this thing. Been dealing with this for over a month now with no idea what could be the problem with it any ideas? Also after replacing the alternator and battery the check engine light is still comming on but im guessing you need a scanner to turn that off right?

    Wow, that was so cool, i thought you had to have a code scanner in order to read the problems with my car. The codes that showed up were P0141, P0155, and P0161. Thanks so much for letting me know that on my car!

Why don't you tell us what code it is giving you? Turn the key on then off twice, then on the third time turn it on and leave it on. Look on the dash where the milage is, and it should give you a code. eg. P-0440 or P-0700

Let us know what it tells you.

Rather than electrical, have had any thought about a leaky head gasket or cracked head?

2002 dodge intrepid se 2.7 engine light on got

Anytime a Chrysler product of this year has a check engine light, get it to a dealer immediately. The 2.7 liter engine is notorious for oil sludging. This can be a dangerous problem that can destroy the engine.

Your problem may have nothing to do with oil sludging, and I hope it doesn't; but don't take a chance.

Google "Chrysler engine oil sludging."

2002 dodge intrepid code reads transaxel module

REPORT THAT SHOP TO BBB. If they charged you and didnt fix it they stole your money. If a fix may not fix the car you should be told upfront.
Sounds like you will need a shop that has a scanner capable of transmission fault testing.
Most genisys and snap-on scanners have this capability.

The knock sensor is threaded into the block of the engine, just below where the cylinder head sits. You will need to remove the intake plenum (upper and lower) to access this part.

My 2002 Dodge intrepid has it engine light on

The MAP sensor and Knock Sensor are both very easily replaced. A better scanner will tell you which sensor is going bad on your transmission. An Autozone code reader will not tell you which sensor on the trans. is acting up. Most sensors on your trans. are very easity replaced as well. They just screw in and plug it. It's worth paying to get a "real" scan done. The trans. sensors are inexpensive and you can replace any other your listed sensors yourself.
