Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

My 2000 Dodge Intrepid is making a tapping noise in the engine (top of the engine). There is only 50,000 miles on it. There is no smoke coming from the hood or from the exhaust. My dad's friend took a look at it and said it does not appear to be a problem with the engine itself. Any idea where I could start to find out what the issue is?

I have a 2000 Intrepid with a 2.7L engine, it has a spun bearing and its making a tapping noise... i need to make the noise stop. I just purchased the car and it started to make that noise the day after,...


gear oil best bet but don't use alot it can catch the engine on fire. P.S i work as the forman for a dealership and 2.7 engine have known sludge issues I don't think there are going to miss this. when we get a old generation 2.7 we change the oil right at trade in to see the condition but u may luck out. Good luck and buy a 3.5 enigne or 5.7 enigne next time enigine and trans are bullet proof.

Loud clicking/clanking noise on 200 Intrepid


Sounds like the motor is going out. 2.7s are bad about rod bearings going out. If you don't use the correct weight oil, and change it every 3K, they don't hold up too well.

Dodge Intrepid 2000


Have had two intrepids that each lasted to almost 200000 miles - even with teenagers driving the last few years. The gear shifting thing came up on both of them. It has always been hit or miss as to when this happens. the only solutions we used were add transmission fluid, if necessary, and otherwise change the trans fluid if its been 50,000 miles since the last change. Also, letting it sit a few minutes (to cool?) does make a difference.
