Question about 1996 Dodge Intrepid
When I fill up I never fill more than the first click of the gas hose nozzle. I then for approximately 50 miles get a strong fuel smell. I recently had my fuel pump replaced. I can be driving down the road when all of a sudden the car stalls. It then takes about 10 minutes before it will start again. I have been havng trouble starting the engine for a few months. I will turn it over a few times, then turn it over a few times, then the third time turning it over, it starts right up. I hope this is enough information to get a good answer that will help. I have had the gas tank checked twice for leaks, but they say I must be filling the tank too full. I know this is not the case.
I just emailed this to someone else, it might be your problem. Also, what I didn't mention to this guy, is the recall also states that a fuel line somewhere up there can crack too. Look it up to see exactly what I'm trying to say, just get on google and it will pop up.
A factory recall put out in AUG 98. The seals on the fuel lines up on the top of the motor wear out and when the engine is hot they expand and then leak fuel when the engine starts to cool off, you don't get the correct fuel pressure to the injectors, and you have to flood it to get it to start or let it sit longer. Just go down to your local Dodge dealership and they will fix it for free, I'm getting mine done Monday, my car is a 95 with 166k, and it won't cost me anything. Google recalls on 96 dodge intrepids with the 3.5 L if you don't believe me.
