Question about 1996 Dodge Intrepid
1999 2.7ENG INTREPID, CAR SITTING IDELING, POPPED, QUIT. WHEN I STARTED CHECKING I FOUND THE TIMING CHAIN BROKEN, ABOUT 5 LINKS TOTALLY DESTROYED. I HAVE BOUGHT NEW CHAIN,GUIDES ETC, HOWEVER I BELIEVE I HAVE MORE TROUBLE. WHEN I ATTEMPT TO SET TDC ON #1 COMPRESSION, I GET A TIGHT SPOT RIGHT BEFORE THIS POINT. I HAVE NOW DROPPED OIL PAN AND CRANK GUARD TO CHECK CRANK AND RODS, HAVEN'T CHECKED YET, KINDA THINKING MIGHT HAVE VALVE PROBLEM, HOW CAN I CHECK VALVES WITHOUT REMOVING HEADS?AND DOES THIS SEEM LIKE THE RIGHT PLACE TO START LOOKING? ANY INSIGHT IS APPREIATED. THANKS.
Yes it is very possilbe that it bent the valves as these cars do that when the timing belt goes. i reccomend taking off the head and taking it to a machine shop to eveluate. it is easier and cheaper as you do not have the proper equipment to do so. also replace water pump and head gasket as well. nothing is wrong with the bottom end of the motor. it is the head
