Perform it in 4 steps.
first- 45 ft.lbs
2nd- 65 ft.lbs.
3rd- 65 ft lbs again.
4th- 1/4 turn more.
After 4th step, you should have more than 90 ft.lbs. if not, replace bolt.
Also make sure you do proper sequence, as well as check all bolts (unless you bought all new) to make sure they haven't been stretched. Use a straightedge and lay threads on it to make sure they all touch straightedge.

My 97 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine is smoking out the front of the engine not the exhaust. Can you tell me what is the Rear Main Seal and what is the Head Gasket and where to look for the two? If I knew...

The rear main seal is between the engine and transmission. Head gaskets are what seals the block and head of the motor. If the smoke is sweet smelling I would assume it to be a misting coolant leak from a small hole in the radiator. Even though that car is front wheel drive it's mounted longitudinally. Hope this helps.

How do i find the fuel relay for a 97 dodge intrepid

There is a fuse box on the drivers side of the car near the battery. Remove the cover by pushing down on the clip on the engine side of the box. The lid should have the locations of each Relay. They are all the same part, just in different locations.

My 97 intrepid is idle to hight

I'm guessing this Intrepid is a 3.5 cause I have never had this problem with a 3.3 But what I found what always caused it in a 3.5 is bad intake gaskets allowing more air to flow into the engine. Change both upper and lower intake gaskets and this should fix the problem. However when changing the lower intake gaskets there are two bolts that are probably gonna give you problems. The one closest to the front and the one closest to the back. They are the bolts that hold the intake down and go into the head near the coolant ports. These bolts are probably going to break off. The good news is they most of the time break off and there is still a lot of bolt left once you get the intake off to get a vice grips on. Have a torch with a good heating tip handy and someone that really knows how to use it and heat the cyl head around the bolt and then try to get it out with the vice grips, but be very careful cause heating aluminium can be very tricky too much heat and you ruined the head.

Could I replace a blown 97 Dodge Intrepid engine for one that works, but is year 94?

That is possible but the computer system in the '97 is much different than the '94. So there will be allot (large list) of parts to change over from the old engine to the new one. A '96 engine would be more compatible than a '94 but still some differences.
