Jumps, could be the idle air control motor and or a dirty throttle body. Clean them up first. Running sluggish could be this also. But it could be a clogged exhaust system. Check catalytic converters. Engine light on. Check the codes. Can and will lead you in the right direction.

If it has never had plugs changed, i would suggest it. It can make a big difference.

Labor time is .8 hrs + 6 plugs = $80 - $150.

Take your car to a parts place and they will usually check and clear your light for free.

Firestone likes to up-sell everything, $650 is way too much for a basic tune up.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Dodge Intrepid ---- It is showing 3 Error Codes

ok means that you dont have spark plug explotion on 1 or more cylinders and that means miss fire.

Disconnect the battery like 20 or 30 min and then connect the battery again and start the car, then drive and scan again, if you have same code you can do this:


1. take off your O2 sensor and test check if there is wrong change it because maybe that is the problem of all!

2. take off your spark plugs and put new ones.

if not work... do this.


reset your ecu (like I say before)
take your ignition coil #6 and change the place with another one on the same head side.

assambly and go to test if the DTC change like hummm example: Ignition coil #4 then or any other, then you know that the problem is your ignition coil.

if not work this... do this..

take off your ignition coil from the spark plug but still plug to the harnes (the ignition that is failing) and then take the ignition coil closer to Ground (another metal) and then start the car you need to see how the elctricity (not know how to say) "energy" jumps from the coil to the graund many times

if not are any energy jump you need to do this...

check the harnes like maybe that is the problem the question here is do you have voltage in the harness?

hope this help you.

The check engine light should be on and when it is the engine controls are in Limp mode. That means the computer is using a pre-set list of settings to try to keep the engine running long enough to get the car to a shop.
You need to get the problem with the MAP sensor fixed and get the light turned off.

do a self test to access the codes. put the key in the ignition and turn to "on" (not cranking just the dash lights on) then turn the key back one click. Do this a total of 3 times.


off-on, off-on, off-on. The codes will either blink out on the check engine light in pairs of numbers (ending in 5,5 ) or will display on the digital odometer. Have a pen and paper ready to write down the numbers.

post your codes here.

2004 Dodge Intrepid "jumps" occasionally when braking?


if your car has the 2.7 litre you have to change the oil every 5oookm or 3000 miles and use the exact grade as per the book.
the 2.7 has small oil galleries.
you have low oil pressure and or idle speed.check the rpm and it should be 700 unloaded at warm temp.if the iac controller is bad and there is low idle,really low rpm could trigger the oil light to come on and the transmission vacuum controls will be causing strange behavior.

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!
