03 dodge intrepid 2 7 liter engine

Is it possible to replace just the water pump and timing chain without any timing problems or do you to change all timing components. Because I'm having problems getting the crank and cam sprockets to line up with the colored links on the chain. I am working with a manual.

SOURCE: 2002 Intrepid wont start

if you have disconected the battery for more than 15min then see if you have a reset on your fuel pump it would have run with the fuel already in the line

SOURCE: should i bye this car

If this car passes E-Test and doesn`t need much for SAFTEY test, then price is pretty good.
If this car doesn`t run why would you be intrested?? If it needs a timing chain/belt ,then stay away

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Intrepid SE, great

after the repairs needed and the associated cost you will be above value for the vehicle, if you havent heard it run and know it needs a timing chain you run the risk of buying a car with twisted valves. resulting in the need of an engine

Getting to timing chain without tearing down engine 2000 dodge intrepid


I assume you're talking about the 2.7L V6. As you're probably aware (having had it apart before), the timing is properly set by aligning the colored links on the primary timing chain with the marks on the crank sprocket and cam sprockets. The only way I know of to see all these at the same time is to remove the timing cover, and you have to tear the engine apart to remove the timing cover.

How do i change a water pump on 2001 dodge intrepid?


This vehicle has a double overhead cam engine. The water pump is driven off the timing chain. Unless you have had experience doing internal engine repairs, this is not a DIYer job. There is great risk of doing more damage than good if any step(s) of the repair procedure are not done correctly.

I changed a thermostat on a 2004 dodge intrepid 2.7 and there is a hole thats located next to the bottom housing bolt leaking coolant


The hole you are describing sounds to be the wheap hole for the water pump
years ago the first time i had that issue it drove me nuts to figure it out .. btw not really a job to take on by yourself as it is a chain driven motor, also make sure you are prepared to pay more than the mechanic tells you as it is common to have to change the chain tensioner after this repair (when they collapse the hydrolic unit alot of times they will not "re-inflate")

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid that needs a new water pump. My mechanic quoted me over $1000 to fix it, and warned me that the engine will likely go bad soon because the water pump goes through the motor....


Hello and Welcome to FixYa.com



you must have the 2.7 liter engine if so the weep hole for the water pump is inside the engine and yes the water pump goes out and leaks anti freeze and water into engine causing it to sludge up. depending on how long you ran engine with water in it depends on how long engine will last. if not long you should be ok. i would remove the oil pan and clean the oil pump screen and pan. the estimate is correct. the water pump is in line with the timing chain. i would replace the chain and guides while in there as well. flush engine after all is done. use the cheap oil to run engine and add flush then drain and add synthetic oil for high mileage engine. I own one and i had the same problem. i drilled through the timing plate a hole and braised a little pipe to the weep hole to water pump so for the next time the pump leaks it will leak outside of the engine.

My 2002 ford escape have 120500 miles, do i have to replace the timing chain?


The 4-cylinder 2.0-liter 16-valves DOHC 127-hp Ford Zetec engine used a timing belt that needs replacement at 120k. After 2005 both, the 2.3-liter 4-cylinder and the 3.0-liter V6 engines have a maintenance-free timing chain.

I would recommend changing the water pump while you are at it.

The 2.0 timing belt labor is 4 hours and the water pump is 10 hours in addition. Not a fun job.

Here's the process:

Is the water pump on 02 dodge interpid 2.2 ran by


If you mean the 2.7 liter V6 (I think the Intrepid only came with the 2.7 or 3.5 liter V6), the answer is yes. The water pump is driven by the timing chain.
