Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
I had just left my interview i got in my car and started driving got on the highway and was getting ready to pass another car so i hit the gas and the car started to surge and buck at 60mph and would go any higher so tryed agian and it did the same. I then proceed to pull to the side of the highway and shut the car off and then restarted it and it was all fine then
Common problem with the Intrepid, i had a '99 and a '04 do this to me and it was the Transmission output shaft speed sensor both times.
eventually when the problem gets worse you will get codes for the sensor as well as codes like "2nd gear ratio incorrect". It can cause a lot of strange problems like shifting into the wrong gear. Sometimes it will also try to shift into third gear when leaving a stop sign causing it to rev high and then drop into first gear.
The dodge guys charged $90 bucks to put one in for me and i did the other myself, located on the drivers side of the transmission near where the cv axle comes out. there are two sensors there, one is Vehicle Speed and the Other is output speed. I believe they have a different number of wires so just match up your new one.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
