Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid

2 Answers

Starting engine problem - 2.7L engine

In recent weeks, the automobile will not start at various times. The battery (purchased 6 months ago) and alternator (less then 2 years old) have both checked out fine. Checked all fuses, they look good too. All wiring seems to be in order, unharmed and secure. Once running, the vehicle runs perfectly fine. No abnormal noises. Serpentine belt looks good.

This is a problem that happens intermittently. Additionally how does one go about checking the ignition switch?

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for any correspondence.

Check the negative terminal on the battery. Mine did the same thing, and when I finally decided to check, the cable end had nearly corroded to nothing. They used thin copper band clamps instead of something with a little more heft. I replaced mine with a marine-style brass clamp. Not a problem since. It's tough to get to the battery, so plan on stripping out the air box to get to the battery tie-down bolts, then remove the access panel from the passenger side wheel well to get to the battery.

Intermitente starting problems & transmission seemed to go out the other day while driving it


sounds more like an engine issue off the top of my head. The transmission runs off the vacuum from the engine. If the engine timing chain is stretched it will run then not run, have problems idling and shifting and won't charge the battery properly. anyone who has done one before could probably tell you just by the sound of the engine running.

have your battery check first.ive never seen a battery that will last for 5 years.shelf life starts as soon as the acid is added to the battery.

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...


If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.

Car won't start even after new battery purchase


Alternator problem, the alternator charges the battery when car is running, so it has probably died now. Was working at reduced capacity for a while, which is why you were only getting a partial charge for some time. Now you have an open circuit completely as alternator has failed completely, time for a visit to an auto electrician. PS replacing acid in battery with distilled water is not a good idea. It probably was time for a new battery anyway.

doubt that it is the timing belt. sounds like your piston rings are starting to go. I could be wrong. best thing to is check the timing first. if it is in time pull the oil dip stick and smell it to see if it is burning
