I had a very similar problem as most did on this stalling out, no start, and no spark on my 1994 Dodge Intrepid 3.3L V6. I was told to watch my Tachometer in the car to see if it moved at all while cranking the engine over. It did not move. So that told me the crankshaft sensor was not picking up any signal what so ever. I changed it. The engine immediately started. So I left the engine run for approx. 25 minutes then the engine died. I had again lost spark but had minor RPM on the tachometer during engine crank. I dug thru all the wiring harnesses and found that when I moved the connector to the Coil pack/Module the engine would start. I got the problem narrowed down to the connector but have not replaced it yet. I put a little slack in the harness the wires run in so the harness is not pulling on the connector. This has seemed to solve the problem for me. At least for now. richmond980@yahoo.com

How can i tell what size motor my dodge intrepid 1994 has?


From what I could find it is a 3.3L or a 3.5L.If you open the hood,look on top of the engine,most likely the valve covers which are rectangular and should be right above the spark plugs.Normally the number is there.I googled and the 2 listed above should be the only number you see,one or the other.
Good luck! Greg

coil pack bad or ecm shot. unplug 1 wire from coil pak and hold close to metal while a friend cranks ignition. if you see a spark then paks are bad. no spark indicates bad ecm.

Will not start when below 40 degrees cranks and cranks if above 45 starts but runs ruff till warm


you need to have the engine coolant switch checked,since the computers rely solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.

1994 dodge intrepid has no spark unless temp is above 40 degrees


Check the connector at the coil pack/module. Four wire connector that supplies the coil pack with power and signal from crankshaft sensor.

How do u know if a crank sensor is bad on a 1994 dodge intrepid?


Check to see if you have any rpms on your tachometer in the car during engine crank. If you do sensor is probably fine but if your needle doesn't move at all sensor is bad. Your problem might be the same as mine at the coil pack/module connector. Four wire connector that was not getting a good connection. I got very lucky to have found this.
