You need to have the computer tested for control system trouble codes by the dealer, it is very doubtful the computer itself is the problem, this is true less than 2% of the time, it not something u guess on as it costs around $300.

I have a 2003 dodge intrepid es with the 3.5l motor 1 day I was driving and my car over heated and just shut off when I lifted the hood the radiator hose was busted I finally got it home and opened it up...

You need to find out what fault caused the check engine light to come on, until the fault code is retrieved from the engine control module memory you are 100% guessing. I think you have a misfire.

I have 2002 dodge intrepid and it sputters and jerks only when giving a load in drive. this doesnt happen in reverse. and my check engine light isnt on. my buddy tried readind the codes with his coder and...

The sputter you feel under load is either a spark plug wire or a torque convertor shutter due to transmission fluid not being serviced properly, A code scanner connot dictate these problems, You need it tested by a pro with a "Computer" that can read pids (Sensors) as it runs to eliminate un needed repairs..

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier

Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.

Cutting out while driving

my grandma has a 01 interpid that would cut out at 75 mph it was the cam sensor i think it was about $45.00 or so. car has not done this since the location of the sensor is easy to see open the hood standing in front of your car look in like you want to see the belts on the drivers side front of engine below where you fil with oil and to the left a little there is a black sensor it probably is soaked with oil.

1999 Dodge Intrepid engine jerks, cuts off when slows down/stops


Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.
