If its a 2.7L they tend to do this, use a good 5w30 oil
maybe an oil additive. or change oil sending unit.

Brake lights will not go off in dodge intrepid


It seems like you may have a bad Brake Light Switch, which is located on your Brake Pedal. The switch is activated when you step on the brakes it sends a signal to the Brake Lights to turn the lights on when the pedal is depressed, if it is defective it may be keeping the Brake Lights on. You can purchase on and replace it yourself, it is not very difficult.

2004 Dodge Intrepid "jumps" occasionally when braking?


if your car has the 2.7 litre you have to change the oil every 5oookm or 3000 miles and use the exact grade as per the book.
the 2.7 has small oil galleries.
you have low oil pressure and or idle speed.check the rpm and it should be 700 unloaded at warm temp.if the iac controller is bad and there is low idle,really low rpm could trigger the oil light to come on and the transmission vacuum controls will be causing strange behavior.

The ignition switch is faulty if the gauges and dash lights will not come on, change the fuses first. Transmission fluid and filter change needed. Differential gear oil change also needed.
