Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

97 Chrysler intrepid backfires after 70 km/h

When the car is in park it is fine, put it in reverse or drive and it hesitates.
Driving along below 70 km/h relativity fine, when i go above 70 km/h it back fires when i push the gas pedal. if i let go of the gas pedal the problem stops.
I have tried using gas line anti-freeze and injector cleaner, it helped for about a day.
if u could help it would be appreciated. thanks

When was last tune-up, (plugs & wires checked), and fuel filter changed. Good place to start.

My car will not go into park


honestly its something you have to take to a mechanic. it can be something along the lines of the shift lever not syncing with the gears its suppose to be put in.

just because the "P" is highlighted doesnt mean the car is in park it could still be in reverse. that would mean your gear shift lever is broken and need to take it to a mechanic to fix it or replace it.

Well first it should only restart in park or nuetral, any check engine light on? May be fuel pump if not. Listen for pump running in fuel tank. Should run at key on for a few seconds. If check engine light on, it should be scanned for codes, possible crank sensor

Chrysler vehicles often need to be driven between 300 - 500 miles for the control module on the transmission to "learn" your driving habits. Avoid punching the gas or driving very slow, and you should be just fine.
