Sounds like the chain ate all the teeth off the timing gear. if that is what happened you can replace the engine or have it rebuilt. might get prices on each option. sometimes you can buy a rebuilt engine that is better than factory specs, lasts longer and works better etc.

Hello, try this, take off oil filler cap and have someone crank engine, if you see the rocker arms moving do a compression test on each cylinder, if no movement is seen, it is VERY likely the timing belt is broken and the engine should be fine! good luck, marty

    the 2.7 is an interferance engine! IT IS POSSABLE FOR SOME VALVE TO BE BENT..........that does NOT mean the engine needs to be replaced...if it is under warranty go ahead and have it replaced, but if you are having too pay for this, it is cheaper too have the head removed and valves replace, the best way to find out is replace the timing BELT and crank engine, if you hear the unmistakeable CLANKING youll know the vales are bent...

2001 intrepid makes a ratleing nois were the timming chain goes


well if you know its making noise from the timing chain then its probably time to replace the chain and chain tensionors and chain guides, the tensioners and, guides are more likely to make that type of noise but if you havent replaced the chains it would be a good idea to do it all at once

I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid SE....2.7 engine...someone told me it sounded like my timing chain was about to go out. What will happen if it does and how much would it cost to get a new one...just the...


dreanaparker, I am not sure if a 2.7 Chrysler engine is what is called an interference engine or not. If it is and the timing chain breaks then you will have the possibility of bending a few valves when it does. This opens up a whole new set of repairs as the cylinder heads with the bent valves will have to be replaced as well as the timing chain. If it is not an interference engine then just the timing chain will have to be replaced. As far as cost goes for the chain I believe that it will be in the$100.00 to $200.00 range. Sorry I can't be more specific. Good luck with this.

2004 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 engine, and oil light keeps coming on.


Major issues with the 2.7L motor. design flaw causes oil to hang in the heads and "cook" creating sludge. Sludge builds until the passage to the timing chain is blocked starving the chain and causing near instant failure...this is a "rattling" or Roulette wheel sound. The 2.7L is an "interference" type engine. When the chain breaks or jumps, the cams stop in position thus leaving the valves wherever they may land. The pistons keep on moving though....and kiss whatever valves happen to be open. Bye Bye Motor. Using Synthetic oil EARLY and exclusively cures the sludge issue. Replacing the timing chain and components at interval is crucial...don't wait for it to break or jump!
