Question about 2003 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

1994 Dodge Intrepid ES - Suddenly died on road

Help...before I buy a new Fuel Pump.....I've driven the car for about 3k miles since buying it for $750.00, 6 months ago.
I have NEVER had any problems, aside of replacing hoses, brakes, adding oil etc.

I was heading up a hill at 5 mph. and the car died. No sputter, no bucking, no smells just died.

The fuel gauge says 1/4 tank, but I put in 2 gallons to rule that out

I checked fuses and all are ok.

I replaced the Fuel Relay and nothing

I sprayed started fluid in Carb at it started for a second and died....

I had a friend listen to see if the fuel pump made sound when turning the key we are not 100% sure..

- this is the thing...the other day, I slightly tighten the bolts around the valve cover b/c I noticed a fair amount of oil sludge after changing the oil.....

After reading about your problems.... I am wondering if paying for the fuel pump (first) is the way to go....or should I look at the Coil first?

Is there anyway to know what to do first....without going to a garage for assistance.??

A Car need 3 things to run, Air , Fuel and Spark. Start troubleshooting by checking for spark, if no spark prob the coil packs or ICM. Iff you have spark then move to the fuel, remove the cap from the tank and have somebody listen where you fill it up for the buzz of the pumps initial prime. you can also break one of the fuel lines loose and check for fuel volume and to ensure it is pumping. if it is not pumping check all relays and fuses and check to ensure you are getting power to the pump before you replace it.

What this sounds like is a problem with your fuel pump. This could be checked buy doing a preasure test which will tell you if pump is on it's way out. Then of course you would have to replace it yourself or have it replaced. GOOD LUCK.

1999 dodge intrepid 2.7 V6. engine will run rough and die at rpm below 1000 above 1000 it will seem to run and drive for about ten miles then runs rough at all speeds. computer gives no error codes and all...

It could be the 'idle air control' sticking or not responding to the ECU.
I can't tell you where is is located on your vehicle and would recommend you invest in a service manual which, even if you don't want to DIY, will give you an idea of what must be done so you can judge the fairness of a quote.
I like Haynes best and you can buy them on line, in auto parts stores or from eBay:
