SOURCE: Overheating

Hi. I have put together a guide to help you with this replacement of the thermostat.

Step1 Raise your DodgeIntrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug atthe bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitablecontainer. Reuse the coolant if relatively new and clean. Step2Follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing in all enginetypes except the 2.7L. In Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lowerradiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at theend of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off thethermostat housing. Step3Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pulloff the cover. In 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access tothe thermostat housing behind the alternator by working from beneath the engine. Step4Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the newthermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any oldgasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install thenew thermostat gasket. Step5Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp.Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negativebattery cable. Step6 Start your DodgeIntrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reachesnormal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tightenthe hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.

  • Removethe alternator drive belt and bolts holding the alternator in place andset the alternator aside for easiest access to the thermostat in DodgeIntrepid 2.7L engines, if desired.
  • Don't drain the coolant from your Dodge Intrepid while the engine is hot.
Please rate and god bless.

SOURCE: I need to remove the upper intake manifold from my

First off, you need to label all of the electrical and vacuum lines connecting to the intake manifold. This will make reassembly much easier. Then, there is a torque sequence to be used during disassembly and reassembly.2cf4be0.gif
This image is of the TIGHTENING SEQUENCE. Reverse this to take the manifold off. This is important so that the upper intake manifold is not warped at all, which would decrease the quality of the seal. Be careful during disassembly and reassembly to avoid bending any lines or tubes. If things are in your way, disconnect them rather than pushing them to the side. This will avoid pinching inner linings which cannot be seen visually.

As for the gaskets, (as far as I am aware), Chrysler's (Dodge's) official stance on the manifold gaskets is that they are reusable. However, this is if they ALL look good under close inspection. Any tears, "melting", or other damage means the gaskets should all be replaced. They are not expensive, and I believe they all come as a set including both upper and lower gasket sets. Personally, I would recommend replacing them regardless. This would be a good preventative step to help extend the life of the vehicle. Also be sure to check the cooling line O-rings and replace them as necessary, following the criteria above.

Good luck and I hope this helps, even though I see it is a bit late.
