Hello Kalel6877...the "quickest" way is let a shop put it on a hoist and do it...but if you want to tackle this one i'll walk you through it.
Raise your Dodge Intrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps. Set parking brake and/or chock wheels
Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitable container.
On Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lower radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at the end of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off the thermostat housing.
Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pull off the cover. On 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access to the thermostat housing behind the alrernator by working from beneath the engine.
Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the new thermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any old gasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install the new thermostat gasket.
Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105 inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp. Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negative battery cable.
Start your Dodge Intrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reaches normal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tighten the hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.
Thats about it...jack her down and pat yourself on the back.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take time to rate me a fixya.

replace the cap--is the radiator damaged? No reason to replace the water pump. Boiling is caused by leak, faulty thermostat, clogged radiator, or head gasket.

How do you replace a water pump on a dodge intrepid 2003


The intake where the thermostat goes is in the driver side of the motor behind the altenator. I had to remove the front clip of the car and the altenator to get to it. It is quite a job.
