How much it will cost me to fix code 204 injector in my 2002 dodge intrepid?

The cost would depend on the problem and labor costs in your area.
If the problem is the injector, the part is around $70 plus labor.
If the problem is in the wiring the cost would be per hour to fix it.
You can call around your area to get an estimate on replacing the injector plus diagnostic time.

1998 Dodge Intrepid ES Okay, here goes. Had an overheating problem last summer. Had the water pump and timing belt on that replaced then. I have had the "new" fan system put in as the old...

  1. Auto inspections of the vehicle may produce results contributing towards restoration. For example, the auto technician makes the evaluation as separate arrangement from which problematic areas are ascertainable. The result findings are documented as diagnostic draft plans from which repair authorizations are achievable. At which point, diagnostic without repair requirements would least requires any further procedures. However, once the vehicles diagnostics produce result requiring expert vehicle repairs, the next sequence of procedures are initiated. First, vehicle repairs require constituent components either permanent parts or depleteable resources constituents prior to workshop initiation plans. Auto technician diagnostic plans would usually contain the damage of the vehicle. A decision to commence restoration of the faults would produce estimate drafts in parts repaired for either replacement acquirable, leasable or alternately. The next sequence includes calculations estimates in resources that would be required contributing towards entire workshop restoration process procedures.

Where is the thermostat on the 2002 Intrepid

It is behind the alternator. You will need to remove the alternator slightly to gain access to the thermostat housing. Best example, follow the bottom radiator hose to the block. Hope this is helpful. I just finished replacing mine.

I need to replace the water pump on a 2002 v6 2.7 l Dodge Intrepid. I have already purchased the part where can I find an affordable mechanic in Houston, TX near the zip code of 77064?

You can check yourself at this link. There is an estimator that indicates labor will be from $450 to $570. Then you can check out mechanincs in your area.

This is a big job. The water pump is driven by the timing chain and it involves taking everything off the front of the engine. Don't be surprised if the mechanic also recommends replacing other items while in there. If you have more than 100,000 miles, maybe even the timing chain(s). As long as it's apart . . .

Hi. I have put together a guide to help you with this replacement of the thermostat.

Step1 Raise your DodgeIntrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug atthe bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitablecontainer. Reuse the coolant if relatively new and clean. Step2Follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing in all enginetypes except the 2.7L. In Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lowerradiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at theend of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off thethermostat housing. Step3Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pulloff the cover. In 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access tothe thermostat housing behind the alternator by working from beneath the engine. Step4Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the newthermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any oldgasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install thenew thermostat gasket. Step5Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp.Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negativebattery cable. Step6 Start your DodgeIntrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reachesnormal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tightenthe hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.

  • Removethe alternator drive belt and bolts holding the alternator in place andset the alternator aside for easiest access to the thermostat in DodgeIntrepid 2.7L engines, if desired.
  • Don't drain the coolant from your Dodge Intrepid while the engine is hot.
Please rate and god bless.

you can get a replacement at minimal cost at auto parts store like Napa or Oreillys. it is called the thermostat cover/housing. if you have broken bolts and there should be 2 of them you will have to remove them with a tool called easy outs. and replace the bolts.
