SOURCE: 1997 dodge intrepid running hot!

check first if you are loosing water or cooling fluids on your radiator. There may be a leak or the radiator cap may no longer prevent the steam from escaping. check the radiator fans if they are turning. You can check the fan if it is working by removing the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. The fan should turn on by then.

SOURCE: how to you install a water pumpon a 3.5 97 dodge

Remove the hood bracket bar, 4bolts, then the fan shroud assembly, then the belts, belt adjuster, and timing covers, line up the cam gears, crank gear to the marks , cam has 1 dot, they line up to timing housing 2 dots, (single dot to middle of the 2 dots), crank has 1 dot to mark on the oil pump housing to your right of crank gear, thats TDC. now remove the timing belt tensioner, 2 bolts, and remove the belt, if the pump has leaked, replace the belt, and tensioner if it is NOT metal Pulley, the fibre one will break down from the antifreeze. its a good idea to replace the water pump housing orings behind it, ac bracket has to come off, as the right cam on engine, this not a retiming iussue with the gear. GOOD LUCK. RDJRP

SOURCE: how do u put a 99 dodge intrepid with a 2.7 back

There are 3 sets of colored links on the timing chain two singles and one double. Line the marks of the cam pulleys up with the ones on the head, they look like holes, then line the crankshaft pulley mark with the one on the oil pump. Install the chain, lining the double mark up with the mark on the passenger side cam pulley and the other two with their respective marks on the other pulleys. Install the tensioner, rotate the engine two or three times to make certain everything still lines up and your done.

replace the cap--is the radiator damaged? No reason to replace the water pump. Boiling is caused by leak, faulty thermostat, clogged radiator, or head gasket.

Don't do it!! You need alot of experience & the water pump drives the camshafts,meaning if the timing belt jumped or if you rotate the crank while doing the pump,good bye engine.Also,you need special tools that only certified chrysler techs have,like me,lol.

How do you replace a water pump on a dodge intrepid 2003

The intake where the thermostat goes is in the driver side of the motor behind the altenator. I had to remove the front clip of the car and the altenator to get to it. It is quite a job.
