Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

01 Dodge Intrepid with 2.7l V6 turns over but won't start. Mechanic believes timing jumped adn advised motor is done...not worth fixing. Is this True? Can timing be reset? Scantool does not indicate any issues with various sensors, ie cam, crank, ingition etc...Does have spark (faint) but no primary power (ie 12v) to ignition coils? Fuel pressure ok, fresh gas, new battery and starter, what controls primary voltage to coils???Any ideas???

The coils only power up during cranking check that first. If it sounds funny cranking,ie. cranks faster or slower than usual,then he's probably right about the timing belt. If it jumped the heads need to be replaced or rebuilt,both costly. Would be cheaper to put a used engine in.

First of all before you spend a lot of money with computer mechanic or personal machanics
try a little trouble shooting yourself. My sons neon would not start it started out as beinging a intermittent problem 1. It had a very old battery we replaced it seemed like this sovled the problem it started and ran for a couple of weeks, then same problem. This seemed like it may be a wiring or inition problem, jumped from the + batt. to the starter relay coil w/ key turned on it started every time was thinking it was the inition. Tried one more thing switched A/C relay w/starting relay in engine compartment fuse box. wa la no money for the greedy mechanic.

How to fix timing on a 2000 dodge intrepid that jumped time when fixing a water pump

This may sound silly, but whenever I get another (toy), I go to Advance Auto or the like and buy a manual for that vehicle. It has detailed instructions for you. About $25 bucks, but believe me, its a good investment.

My chrysler intrepid 2001 is completely done. I was driving home from work one night and halfway out the driveway it began to knock and then everything just shut off. The car would start again but the gas...

The timing chain has jumped. It starts with the cam sensor unplugged because the ecm sees the camshafts aren't in time with the crankshaft. With the cam sensor unplugged it doesn't know its out of time and it starts. It likely has a bad waterpump which caused the chain to jump. The converters were glowing because when the engine runs with the cam timing off it causes excessive exhaust temps.
