Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid
THE CAR WILL "JUMP" WHILE WE ARE DRIVING SOMEWHERE. KIND OF TWO STEPS FORWARD AND THREE STEPS BACK DEAL......
WAS TOLD IT IS THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR. I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT IS LOCATED IN THREE DIFFERENT PLACES, AND CANNOT FIND IT YET.
ANYONE KNOW WHERE EXACTLY IT IS?
When I back up every now and then my 220 Malibu jumps. Can someone tell me what that might be.

I have a 99 intrepid that did the same thing. My car would do it at the initial start up and also at a complete stop at a stop sign or stop light. The symptoms of my car were several. It kept blowing a 10 maybe 20 amp fuse that opened a door that allowed heat into my car. This same fuse controlled the back up lights as well as the A/C indicator light on the dash. The A/C would work but the light on the dash would not come on. The tachometer needle would also jump with the car's jumping. After several months of trying to figure out what was wrong with it, and no heat, I finally took it to the dealer and explained all of the symptoms I was having. They traced it down to an electrical short under the car by the transmission. It fixed the problem. Hopes this helps.
