Take valve covers off and take a long screwdriver and clean them out. Then take about a half gallon of desil fuel and put it in your oil and run it for a few miles drain and replace the oil.

My 97 dodge intrepid is leaking oil badly! It looks like from engine. How do I fix it?

You don't say from what part of the engine. When is the last time you've had the oil changed? Check the oil filter first if it's loose (it happens) or the seal is old etc... a new filter will fix it.

I have a 97 Dodge Intrepid, with no warning at all one day this loud clicking sound which seems to come from under the valve cover. After changing oil it stopped but after driving it for awhile it comes...

By what you are explaining sounds like the "Lifters" have worn out, try putting a quart of "Lucas Oil" in it,is about $10-$12 at your local auto parts store, it will help reduce the noise considerably. Good Luck.

My 97 intrepid is making a high pitched noise and dont want to shift

If the noise happens while vehicle is in all gears including park and neutral then its the bearing of the oil pump in your torque converter.
Time for a rebuild.

My 97 dodge intrepid 3.5L is running hot.

Most likely a bad fan relay, or a bad temp sensor. Does the fan come on with the A/C? If not, most likely the relay, if so, most likely the temp sensor.
