There are several freeze plugs but should only be 2 where the transmission and engine bolt up together. You will have to remove the transmission (transaxle) to replace them. To make 100% sure those are the only thing leaking coolant you may want to invest in a coolant pressure pump tool. They really aren't all tht expensive and will pump the coolant system up to normal operating pressures without having to crank the engine and getting it hot. After you pump the tool up just get a light and look for leaks. Also when it comes to freeze plugs. There is kinda of a unwritten rule (change one, change them all). Because freeze plugs are very inexpensive, but the labor is gonna be high usually. And while a technician is already removing this an that to change one. It will save you on labor in the long run. I promise. Because something caused that one to leak probably won't be long before the others start leaking as well. And you'd have to start over. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: location of the camshaft and crankshaft sensors

cam sensor is on the driver side, front of the motor, just below the valve covers in easy veiw, just outboard of the water temp sensor and they both share the same wiring harness.  The cam sensor is on the passenger side, actually on the transmission bell housing.  It takes the signal from the flywheel next to the ring gear, about an inch from the engine on the transmission bellhousing.  Accesible from the top and easier if you remove the air filter duct.  Or jack up the front passenger side and easier if you come in from the front and its behind the axel, behind the motor, go up the bell housing, just below crank shaft level.  Go with this first , it tells the comp when to send fuel.  If you're getting spark with a 1381 code and you're choosing between CAM & CRANK, start with this, this is the culprit.  Consider getting it from the dealer.  Good luck.  This is Waverunner70, Hope I could help.

2004 dodge intrepid. As fast as you put water in reservoir it comes pouring out back of motor it is a 2.7 litre are there freeze plugs in the rear of the engine

There are a couple in between the block and the transmission. I suspect one of these has rotted out. If coolant is coming from in between the transmission and the oil pan than unfortunately for you the transmission will need to be removed on order to repair the bad frost plug.

2001 dodge intrepid leaking coolant out of a rectangular shaped box with what seems to be an outlit on it

I assume that your talking about the reservoir for the Radiator. It is likely that you are overheating and the pressure is expelling the anti-freeze. Do the cheapest thing,and simplest thing first, always Replace the radiator cap, and the thermostat. You can do 1 at a time but those aren't much.If that doesn't fix it then a flush of the radiator might be it..

Need a picture of where a thermostat is located on a 2001 dodge intrepid

It's at the end of the lower radiator hose where it meets the engine. The original on some engines were staked in place and you might have to grind metal off the housing. It is in the opposite place of old time cars

2001 intrepid 2.7l engine, anti freeze is getting into oil.

This most likely means the head gasket has failed and must be replaced. If so, it's bad news because that is an expensive job........not the parts, but the labor. It involves removing the head, putting on a new head gasket, and then cleaning that mess out of the crank case if you have been driving it that way very long.

Where are the spark plugs located on a 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7 engine?


They are on top of the motor, 3 on each side, just follow the wires from the coils. To access, you need to remove the two torx screws fastening each of the spark plug wire boot, and pull it out, the boot is about six inches long. You'll also need a 5/8" spark plug socket with a long extension and ratchet.
