Question about Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Dodge Intrepid. There are times that it simply will not start until the 3rd or 4th time (but it eventually starts). There are also times that I can't get it over 2.5 RPM before it starts sputtering really bad. It's also dying when in travel but it starts right back up. This has been going on for awhile now without it getting any worse or any better. Do you have any idea what is causing this? Thank you, Tim

SOURCE: transmission stuck in first gear

You say you don't get a code.Did you check it with a monitor or is the check engine light not on? The cheapest thing to try are the input and output sensors. They are 20-30 dollars a piece. I think they are screwed in on the pass. side of the transmission.If that doesn't cure it you might want a transmission shop to look at it. Good luck and let me know, Dan

SOURCE: Car starts, drive a mile, stalls.

try haviing your alternator checked advance auto parts can check it while its on the car and the can check the battery too. if thats not it it may stall due to a loose battery connection or a loose ground strap. if it stalls and everything turns of (electrical) it may be a connection or ground strap.

SOURCE: Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.

check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

It sounds (based on your description) like there is a Fuel problem:
1. Check the fuel pressure at the port on the Fuel Rail. Check especially when operating at higher RPM's than at idle or stop. At these levels there is enough gas being provided to keep the engine going. At higher RPM's the Pressure/Volume may not be enough causing the stalling.
2. When was the last time the Fuel Filter was changed? Change this and check operation before moving onto to #3.
3. The Fuel Pump. If the Fuel Pressure and Volume at the Fuel Port is falling at higher RPM's and the Fuel Filter did not help: It sounds like the Fuel Pump is failing. These will fail especially after they warm-up. This problem (losing power and dying) will happen more and more frequently and the Fuel Pump will eventually die all together.
You have to replace the Fuel Filter when you install a new Fuel Pump - it is part of the warranty.
4. The Fuel Injectors: If the Fuel Pressure/Volume at the Fuel Rail is fine, then it is not the Fuel Filter or the Fuel Pump. The problem is "downstream". It may be the electrical aspect of the Fuel Injectors or the mechanical side of the Fuel Injectors themselves. Check each Fuel Injector for correct voltage. If the voltage is correct - Pull and replace that corresponding Fuel Injector. I actually recommend: if you have to replace more that one Fuel Injector - go ahead and replace them all.

Car Dying, Not starting, and can't get over 2.5 RPM


I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid and had a similar problem; while, in motion my car would turn off so I would pull over with its flow. I would wait there for about 20 to 30 minutes and tried turning it back on and it did. This would happen often. After, doing my research and having a few guys helping me to figure this out, and changing a few sensors that cost over $50.00 a piece that didn't solve the problem. I find out that the crankshaft position sensor needed to be replaced; which, I did and I only paid $12.00 at AutoZone. It never again turned off on me again. (of course only when, I would turn it off). I hope this helps you and if you have any other question please ask, I've had too many issues with this vehicle and my only solution is to repair it. I am unemployed, so I can't afford to purchase another vehicle or hire a mechanic. Good luck :-)

My Car takes too long to start or wont start at all. Please help!


I have been working on Chrysler products since the late 1960's. Your 2002 Dodge Intrepid has a computer control system. It is POSSIBLE to get diagnostic codes from your car, without a code reader. To do that, simply put the ignition key in, then rotate it clockwise to the run position, then back to off, then run, then off then run ... and watch for a blinking light on the dash. Assuming that is the check engine light, it will "blink the codes" to you! Count the ON (illuminated) blinks, until there is a short pause. That is the first digit of the first code. After the first pause, the blinks will be indicating the second digit of the first code. If you miss-count ... sorry, but you will have to start over. When you count five blinks, a short pause (maybe two seconds), then five more blinks, that is the "end of codes"
indicator. When you get all the codes, post them for analysis.
