    Cars built before 1990 used a very simple computer system which can be tough to troubleshoot. The computer does not give you much in the way of diagnostics like newer models do. Code 23 is a problem with the ignition module or circuit, code 31 is a problem with the engine computer, and code 41 is for a problem with the intake air temp sensor. You really need to get a used shop manual to get the testing procedures.

    The components need to be tested rather than just replaced.

    My problem is the code 23, what this? I would like to have this shop manuel, where can I get the manual

    The ignition module sends a signal to the computer when the engine is running. The computer is not getting that signal. You can look on Ebay for a copy of the shop manual.

Still sounds like a fuel problem. Try a full tank of supreme gas, plus put a can of SEAFOAM into the tank to help clean you injectors. See if this will help clear up your problem. Did you change the plugwires????

Known GTP problem.

You most likely have a bad fuel pump resistor, which controls 2 speeds of the fuel pump.

To check to see if this is the problem, there is a trick you can do and its very easy to do. Go to the attached link, and bend the tab my finger is pointing at and then plug it back in. If your car starts and runs fine, well we just solved the problem.

Repacing fuel filter on 1996 intrepid


1) Relieve the fuel system pressure by first removing the fuel pump relay from the Power Distribution Center. Then, start the engine and let it to run until it stalls. Try starting it again and allow it to run until it stalls. Continue restarting the engine until the car will no longer start. Turn off the ignition.
2) Disconnect one electrical connector from an injector. Use an alligator clip to connect an end of a jumper wire to either injector terminal. Connect the other end of the jumper wire to the positive side of the battery. Then, connect an end of a second jumper wire to the other injector terminal. Very briefly touch the other end of the jumper wire to a ground.
3) Locate the fuel filter, which is part of the fuel pressure regulator mounted on the fuel pump module. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then lower the fuel tank. Disconnect the fuel lines from the filter.
4) Remove the fuel line from the pressure regulator. Remove the filter/regulator by pushing in on the locking tab on the filter as you turn the regulator to unlock it. Then, pull it straight up.
5) Push the new fuel filter into the fuel pump module. Turn to lock it in place. Connect the fuel lines, and then you can reinstall the fuel tank. Check for leaks when you start the engine on your Dodge Intrepid.

First, the power relay turns on engine computer. Then the engine computer turns on the fuel pump relay which in turn, turns on the fuel pmp for 5 seconds, unless the engine is running. If you have a new pump, check for spark right after it dies next time.

Vehicle will start but then quickly stalls (within 5 to 10 secs). Fuel pump or fuel filter or?


I would start with the smallest and cheapest first, try replacing the fuel filter ensure it is placed in the direction of fuel flow, then see if that helps out before moving onto the pump.

Feedback appreciated.

How do you change a fuel filter


All WJ models have two fuel filters, a strainer filter at the bottom of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank and one exterior filter within the fuel pressure regulator. Both filters are designed for extended service. They do not require normal scheduled maintenance. Filters should only be replaced if a diagnostic procedure indicates to do so.

The combination fuel filter/pressure regulator is located in front of the fuel tank and above the rear axle. It is transversely mounted to a chassis crossmember (left-to-right). The filter/regulator is equipped with 3 fuel line fittings (2 at one end and 1 at the other end). The single fitting facing the left side of the vehicle is the supply line to the fuel rail. The 2 fittings facing the right side of the vehicle are connected to the fuel tank. Of these 2 fittings, the fitting towards the front is used for fuel return to the fuel tank. The fitting towards the rear is a pressure line.

2. Remove fuel pump relay from Power Distribution Center (PDC). For location of relay, refer to label on underside of PDC cover.
3. Start and run engine until it stalls.
4. Attempt restarting engine until it will no longer run.
5. Turn ignition key to OFF position.
6. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
7. Raise vehicle.

Have you tried to switch your car on, wait 3 sec's and then start the engine? reason: If the pressure in the fuel system went down very fast, it need some sec's to arrive the pressure it needs to start. Also possible: switch on, wait 2 sec's, switch off, on and start. This does the same I told above. If that works, change the fuel pump or let this item checked be a specialist (it's expensiv to replace it).
