Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid
Anti-freeze leeking where the motor and transmission meet
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.

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.

you should have a input sensor and a output sensor on the driver's side of the trans!!
they are common to go out on these intrepids!!!
