The first thing to check when it gets too hot is to make sure the electric fan is working. If it's not, then that is the problem. If it's working, then check the following.
If the radiator and overflow tank are topped off and not low, then change the thermostat. It's most likely sticking. Very common problem and a cheap/easy repair.

2001 dodge intrepid running hot and leaking is it the radiator hose or the radiator


I would not know without looking at it in person.
A mechanic would use a pressure tester to pressurize the cooling system then check for leaks.

1994 intrepid starts runs until warm then cuts off wont start until cools off


Chances are its something electrical, but thats a big list.
You'll have to rule out a few things and check for spark and fuel pressure when it won't start.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 2001 Dodge Intrepid 2.7


There are several freeze plugs but should only be 2 where the transmission and engine bolt up together. You will have to remove the transmission (transaxle) to replace them. To make 100% sure those are the only thing leaking coolant you may want to invest in a coolant pressure pump tool. They really aren't all tht expensive and will pump the coolant system up to normal operating pressures without having to crank the engine and getting it hot. After you pump the tool up just get a light and look for leaks. Also when it comes to freeze plugs. There is kinda of a unwritten rule (change one, change them all). Because freeze plugs are very inexpensive, but the labor is gonna be high usually. And while a technician is already removing this an that to change one. It will save you on labor in the long run. I promise. Because something caused that one to leak probably won't be long before the others start leaking as well. And you'd have to start over. Hope this helps.

How do I find a coolant leak in my 2001 Dodge Intrepid 3.2L? It does not appear to be the hoses, but I notice the passenger side of the radiator is wet. Noticed puddle of coolant under passenger side of...


HI, The easiest way to find a cooling system leak to preform a pressure test. This test requires the use of some special equipment so I will just give you some common areas of these engines that leak. 1. check the upper radiator hose at the radiator. the plastic tank cracks sometimes. 2. check around the thermostat housing. 3. The worse for last there is a coolant passage tube that runs under the intake manifold almost impossible to see without taking things apart. but when it leaks the coolant seems to show up n the floor on the passenger side back by the firewall. I hope these help and you can locate the problem. Be careful when looking for these problems when the engine is hot you can get burnt. Good luck

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid it runs hot, the water bubbles out of the place under the hood it doesnt leak the water but it is empty after you drive it?


Check the upper radiator hose by touching it after you have run the car for awhile to see if it is hot. If so then the water is circulating in the system, if not then the upper radiator hose will be cold and the thermostat is stuck. replace the thermostat and your problem will fixed. Be sure to disconnect the negative ground wire from battery before you attempt to work on coolant system. hope this will help you.

1997 dodge intrepid running hot!


check first if you are loosing water or cooling fluids on your radiator. There may be a leak or the radiator cap may no longer prevent the steam from escaping. check the radiator fans if they are turning. You can check the fan if it is working by removing the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. The fan should turn on by then.

2000 dodge intrepid 2.7 sputtering, revs up


you need to ck some basics you could have a vacuum leak which would hide during warm up but cause havoc when hot,the leak would cause high idle then your pcm would try to lower idle to spec thru use of idle control motor causing surging idle ,also fuel pressure needs to be checked while acting up,may be more cost effective to pay for an hour of diagnostic.
