Most likely cause, if the code only came back after replacing the chain, is a timing problem. Either the marks were not properly aligned, or a tensioner could have failed.

How to replace timing chain on 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7


It's a BIG job. It requires removing everything from the top of the engine (intake manifold, throttle body, all plumbing, valve covers) then removing the harmonic damper, most of the accessories, and then the timing cover. That's just to get to the timing chain. You have to remove the chain guides and tensioner, then cam gears and crank gear. If you're going this route, also replace the two chains (intake cam to exhaust cam) on top of the heads, the water pump, and the tensioners. Be very precise in reinstalling the three timing chains so that everything is in time.
The link shows the details of the chain itself, but be aware that your engine is packed into your Intrepid with limited work space in some areas.

I have a 2004 dodge stratus 2.7l next generation motor that has trouble starting but when it starts it idles smooth.Driving it the motor won't go past 2250 rpm.Change all but IAC sensor .Bought new...


sounds like to me the catalatic converter is plugged up, usually if you cant get an engine to rev anything over 2000 2500 rpms it has a breathing problem... its a real good possiblity its the converter causing your problem, especially if you had problems with another engine at any time, with like antifreeze issues, or fuel issues.. it goes strait to the exhaust and out the tail pipe.
hope this helps

Check engine light on. Will not rev up over 2500 rpm. Fluctuates between 2000 and 2500 rpm and runs rough. Upon first start, you can rev fine and it runs smooth as long as you hold the rpms over 3000. ...


Hi, there are a lot of things that could cause this behavior, so it would help us to diagnose your problem if you could get a scan of the OBD2 connector and send us the trouble code. If you live in the US you can usually get a free scan at your local parts chain.
