Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
A blinking or flashing check engine light indicate misfiring. I suggest you check the components of your secondary ignition system especially if it worsens when it's damp.

Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Its inside the tank. But first see if the fuel pump is clooged. take it off and see if its plugged. Check fuel pressure if you can. should be 45-55 psi

Your truck is OBD2 compliant take it to a local auto parts store and have them read the code for you they usually do this as a free service, if it doesn't have a obd2 port then your truck is not a 1996 vehicle.

I also have a 04 intrepid with the 3.5L engine. mine did the same thing. I replaced my cam position sensor. Bought it at autozone for $30 and replaced it myself. It's located in your timing cover in front of the engine under your upper intake. Never had another problem after replacing it.
I hope this helps

intermittent lean condition may be caused by leaking intake manifold gaskets. Get some carb cleaner and start the truck. Open the hood and spray carb cleaner on the intake manifold gaskets. If the engine reacts at all, you have a gasket leak. If you have questions, please let me know.

The engine temperature
sensor is bad. If so, the ECU assumes the engine is warm and it leans out the
mixture, but you need a richer mix when cold, so it will run lousy till it
actually gets warm.Check your coolant temp sensor. It may be defective and
telling the computer that the engine is already warm. The computer is supposed
to add extra fuel when cold to "choke" the engine until it reaches
operating temp. If the sensor is reading incorrectly the computer may think its
warm and not add the extra fuel to keep it running smoothly. Also check the two
ground wires connected right next to the thermostat housing for loose or
corroded connections. A bad ground here can also lead to running problems. If
the sensors test ok have the timing checked.
Pull your diagnostic codes.
The codes will tell if the sensor is not right.
