    WHen you say you got it repaired please explain this is good detail for me. did you get a new head gasket, did you do the work or a mechanic. ALSO if you did the work how did you torque the head studs? VERY VERY IMPORTANT

Wrong Head Gasket or installed wrong

Other possible problems

Given it is over 20 years old, do you really
want to invest even the time into working on it?

Who did the engine repairs,couldn't be a repair shop
or it would have acted up before you got it back!

Do i need to have my 2004 dodge intrepid anti theft code reset through a dealership if the heads and head gaskets were replaced? the entire top of the engine ws taken apart adn put abcl together.


i would disconnect the battery. removing both the positive and negative battery terminals. with both ends disconnected, hold the two terminals together for about 10 seconds. this will proform a hard reset on most chrysler vehicles. also, if this doesnt work, try turning the key to the on position, and then proforming the hard reset procedure.
