Do you mean replace the head gasket -- you can't fix them, you have to put in a new one. That requires removing the cylinder head(s), which requires removing the intake plenum, disconnecting the exhaust manifolds, and on the DOHC 2.7L engine, removing the timing chain -- a major undertaking. If you're asking how to do this, you probably should have a professional mechanic do it. It's not a simple job.

Have a Dodge Intrepid 1997 3.3. Can oil passage to rocker shaft be unplugged without removing head

probably not as the only thing causing the blockage apart from foreign matter is an incorrect head gasket or a gasket that has been fitted incorrectly that is blocking up the oil hole.

I have the starting of a blown head gasket on a 2000 dodge intrepid. I was wondering does the steel seal stuff that is advertised really work? would really like to know before spending my hard earned...

It all depends on where the leak is and how bad. It could work but it also could not. Either way this would be almost a 100% temporary fix. I would either get it fixed right away or trade/sell the car. A head gasket replacement as long as the heads are good would run 800-1000$ at a reputable shop.'
Thank you,

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.

Sorry you have a blowing head gasket I have a Grand Am with the same problems and found out is was the head gasket. Get the car to the shop and have them perform a pressure test on the radiator and they can tell you if you have a blow head gasket failure also call intake gasket.

Radiator fan not turning on 02 intrepid

maybe the sensor that turns on the fans might of gone bad . . and turning on the ac when engine is gettin hot is not going to help instead turn on the heater to reduce the heat , also overheating causes hoses and gaskets to get soft and get destroyed
