Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

I have a 2003 dodge intrepid with a 2.7. I will drive for approx 10 or so miles, check engine light turns on, come to a stop and shifts down hard, then wont shift. Had it diagnosed, said it was stuck in low reverse, with grudge. happened again a couple weeks later, had a transmission flush, was ok for a couple weeks, then did it again. Husband unhooked battery, rehooked back up and drove approx 10 miles and did it again. unhooked/rehooked battery and drove remaining 7 or so miles home without problems. please help!

    I'm not sure the code that they gave me, but they said a flush should take care of it. Obviously it didn't. I called them again today and they said it might be a cyllanoid (spelling). Any other ideas?

Ok,not really enough info to come to a proper solution. It sounds like you have a serious transmission problem. Could be the torque converter clutch or circuit. I really need to know what code is being set when the light comes on to narrow it down abit. If it's a reputible shop, they should tell you what code was found. Chrysler products have a long history of trasmission problems,ranging from internal malfunctions to pcm issues. Could be a simple re-flashing of the tramission pcm. Whatever the case,a flush will not fix it & the battery is pure coincidence. There's also the possibility it's a problem with the electronics for the engine. Being you need advanced diagnostic tools, I'd take it to the dealer or a very good shop. You can't fix this at home.

99 Intrepid 3.2 engine stalls no check engine lite. Does not happen often but usually within first 15 minutes or so after first start of the day. About 10 times in last 5 months. Sometimes immediate...


Does this trips the check engine lamp to store a code? If possible you should take the Vehicle near a local auto parts store to have the code retrived. How many miles are on your vehilce?

Dodge intrepid new solinoid still won't shift the gear to next.


I believe these models have a transmission temperature sensor. If the transmission gets to hot it puts the car into limp mode until it cools down. A faulty sensor may be your problem. Also you may consider installing a transmission fluid cooler. Most cars have the transmission lines routed through the radiator to cool the fluid but radiators get hot. You want to keep the fluid as cool as possible. Ask your local parts supplier about a transmission cooler.There like 30 bucks but can save you a rebuild later :)

What is the code 700 and 1776


Re...Clarification request....
The 700 code is.....your car has a electrical problem in the transmission.A control circuit malfunction.
You will have to take it to a trans specialist to diagnose the 1776 code.This code is also a trans problem...resulting from the 700 code.

Hard to move Gear Shifter in a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES


I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.

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!

Gears aren't shifting...RPM's too high


There is a problem with the transmission sensor on these cars that will set a trouble code and cause the problems that you describe. Another issue is the correct fluid, use ATF+4 in your Intrepid or you'll mess up the transmission.
