Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
I currently own a '97 Intrepid 3.5L 24valve V6 engine. My check engine light has come on and even after replacing a water pump that broke and other minor problems it doesn't seem to want to go off. It will actually flicker on and off when I am driving before just staying on again. I don't know what the problem with it is. Also I have noticed a loud ticking noise coming from the engine, my father and me both have tried to look for what the cause of it is but have no idea. I have been keeping up on my maintainance it was a free car from a friend last year but has 150,000 and some change in miles on it. I went to move the car earlier here at my job and it almost didn't want to start and seemed like the engine was going to shut off after it started. I turned it on and off several times with the same result before it decided to just stay on fine. Listening a little closer I noticed a grinding or kind of scratching/scrapping sound coming from the engine somewhere, even a co-worker noticed it when I reved the engine, as it was going down in RPMs it was very noticeable. He told me it might be a "Misfire?" That it was normal and sounded fine to him. I don't know about that but help please? I've been looking into getting a new car and if this is stuff that will cost me a lot to fix please I'm asking for honest help here.
