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.

Did you 'burp' the cooling system and get all the air out? It sounds like it has an airlock.

Turn the heating to FULL (very important). Remove the radiator cap, (as opposed to the reservoir cap, but remove that too). Start the engine, and keep topping it up. When the thermostat opens, there will be a surge or drop in level. Continue to top up. Check the temperature gauge in the car to make sure you are at full operating temperature. Turn the engine off, top up to the brim one last time, put the radiator cap on. Top up the reservoir, and put the cap on that.

My 2001 mitsubishi galant was traveling 60mph on the highway when the car lost power and came to a stop on the side of the road now it wouldnt start

Check the alternator fuse. It is either located in the fuse block under the hood and is a block type fuse or is part of the positive battery clamp. If you charge your battery and the car will drive for a while and quit again. You probably just have a blown fuse.

possibly a failed fuel pump. First check the fusible link #4 in the engine compartment relay box. Next, can you hear the fuel pump it come on briefly when you turn the key on? If not, see if you can hear the relay click when you turn the key on. If the relay clicks but the pump doesn't prime, it is likely the pump has packed up. If the pump is good, please see my tip at for other ideas. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Car 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.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
