Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
The entire top of my engine was taken apart and put back together because the head gaskets needed to be replaced and the heads checked. everything was fixed and put back on new and now the car wont start, do i need to have the anti theft code reset since it wasnt anything electrical?
I would disconnect the battery. removing both the positive and negative battery terminals. with both ends disconnected, hold the two terminals together for about 10 seconds. this will proform a hard reset on most chrysler vehicles. also, if this doesnt work, try turning the key to the on position, and then proforming the hard reset procedure.

A COMMON PROBLEM I'VE SEEN MANY TIMES IS THE CRANK SENSOR DISRUPTING COMMUNICATION WITH PCM. UNPLUG THE CRANK SENSOR AND CHECK FOR RESPONSE OF PCM. IF COMMUNICATION IS NOW POSSIBLE YOU HAVE A BAD CRANK SENSOR. IT'S A PROBLEM I'VE SEEN NUMEROUS TIMES. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR TIMING.

It has been My Experience that Most Repairs on this Vehicle ARE PRICEY and it is Not Worth the Maintnance Cost For Instance To Replace the STARTER One Must Remove the Engine Mount This tacks On an Axtra 80 Dollars to Lobor To Replace The Engine Labor ALONE is Around 1,500.00 Cmopared to 6-8 Hundred on Most other Makes & Modles I Personaly Would NOT own One.

Normally I would advise exactly how to do a job, but this is one of those tasks that you NEED to buy a haynes manual so you have the correct tightening/torquing sequence, the correct method to set the timing, etc. This can be an involved process, and without the proper illustrations and information, would be homocide to your vehicle's engine to undertake. While you're in there, you'll want to change out the timing chain as well though, FYI.

I have a problem with a 1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7. Looking for some help or suggestions.
Problem: I only have a spark from the #2 coil.
Vehicle purchased from an Auction and would not start. The vehicle would only backfire. When I removed the valve covers I found that one of the rocker arms had popped out. I replace the heads with heads from a 2001 Intrepid 2.7. I used the cams, primary and secondary timing chains from the 1999 heads. Not sure if I used the original primary (left) cam sprocket from the 1999 or one I purchased in a kit from a Dodge dealership. I tried to use the new primary timing chain but it was not the same. The replacement heads were surfaced and a new head gasket was used. When I tried to start the vehicle it had no spark. The vehicle had set at several locations and parts may have been removed or changed.
I tried 4 ASD relays with no effect. I then tested all 4 on a 2002 Intrepid 2.7 that runs and all worked. I then discovered that the Crank PS has missing. I replaced the Crank PS with one from a 2002 Intrepid 2.7 with no effect. I then replaced the Crank PS with a Crank PS from a 1999 Intrepid 2.7 and got a spark at the #2 coil only. I then replaced the PCM and TCM from the same 1999 Intrepid I got the Crank PS from and still only have spark from #2 coil. I then changed the Cam PS, still spark only from #2 coil. I have tried several coil packs on connector #2 and all have spark. Each coil pack that sparks on #2 will not spark on any other connector. Spark from #2 coil is weak.
I then replaced the wire harness from the PCM to the coils and fuel injectors and still only have spark from the #2 coil. What am I missing? Any suggestions, advice or related information will be greatly appreciated!
