Help.... I have purchased a 2003 Dodge Intrepid

Help.... I have purchased a 2003 Dodge Intrepid 166,000 mi When I test drove the car it started perfect, ran smooth, shifted beautifully. On the way home, after driving about 8 miles, once the car reached 40 mph, the rpms continued to climb but wouldn't shift. Got the car home the coolant as boiling and the seal on the cap was leaking. I purchased a new cap now it doesn't boil. The shifting issue is still not corrected. There is also a slight ticking noise coming from the engine area once the car is turned off. The engine also seems to be pretty hot. Took to AutoZone the following codes were found : P0871, P0770, P0441, P0440, P0344 Any suggestions?

Had same car with 2.7 engine engines from dodge had a lot of issues as for as the shifting issue it is most likely the govenor solenoids inside the transmission another common problem most shops that mess with transmissions charge anywhere from 300 to 500 to fix the shifting issue

    I will try that. I looked on youtube and it looks pretty simple. Mine is a 2.7 as well. Hopefully this will work. Did you do yours at home or in a shop?

    No, a buddy of mine owns a transmission shop and he did it.

Most common problem causing this code is the purge solenoid. A quick smoke test will show if you have any leaks in the system. If no leaks and the fuel cap is installed properly it's the purge solenoid.

You dont have to pull the tranny to fix this. Some so called "experts" on here shouldnt be giving advice if they dont know. The solenoid pack is located in the front the transmission just below the air filter and in front of the input speed sensor you just replaced. Unbolt the connector with a 10mm socket then the bolts connecting to the tranny. Replace with a new one 140 bux or close(get a new one). Installation is vice versa. Easy fix for any person who is mechanically inclined. Always get a second or third opinion when asking a thousand dollar question on any website. Some people think they know....but they dont.

How to run a compression test on a 2003 dodge intrepid 2.7?

You should run a cylinder leak down test instead. If you run a compression test, you take out the spark plugs connect the pressure gauge to the engine in the spark plug hole and crank the engine. You want to make sure it does not start. Disconnect all the coils or remove all the spark plugs. NOTE that each cylinder may have different readings and this is normal. You are looking for big variances. It wont tell you if it is valves or rings though and a leak down test will.

1998 dodge intrepid won't start!

Well, you can try unplugging the battery for a few minutes and also cycling the key back and forth in the ignition to try and reset the car alarm. I'm thinking that it may need to be jump started though too if the battery is low, as it may not be turning over fast enough. Let me know how this works out for you and what worked and didn't work.
