Odd 2001 Dodge Intrepid symptoms

When I drive my Intrepid for about 20 minutes and stop, every now and then I will smell a funny odor coming from the engine. When I first bought the car, (a few months ago) I heard a strange liquid bubbling noise from under the hood. Afterwards, I checked all the fluids and filled everything that needed filled. Today I noticed a little bit of smoke roll out of the front of my car, it was very minimal, but I think something is up. It was not too cold outside, maybe 50 F. So how messed up is my car right now? What can I do to fix this problem?

You either have a thermostat or water pump problem. car is getting hot. Check to make sure you have no water leaks on the hoses or radiator. to check the thermostat,run the engine for awhile to get it hot and touch the upper radiator hose to see if it is hot . If so then the thermostat is working and the problem would be the water pump. hope this will help you.

2002 Dodge Intrepid burnt plastic/wire smell after about 15 minutes


There usually is a vent option for recirculated or cabin air. Have you tried to change what setting it is on , you may need to clear cabin air. I am not familiar with this model , but cars are coming out now with cabin filters, they need to be changed depending on driving conditions ie dusty , dirty conditions need more changing

Hi i have problem with my 2001 chrysler grand voyager when u drove it for while with heater on u pull up and there is quite a bit of smoke coming from small tube that looks like a little exhaust pipe


Jeff, there could be a number of small pipes under the car that emit odd odors. The carbon canister vent tube for the petrol tank is the most likely candidate. Have it checked and replaced, if necessary.

I smell gas fumes and I'm not sure where its coming from.


It's possible that you have a fuel line or injector leaking on the engine. With the engine OFF take a look near the front center of the top of the engine by the fuel lines and injectors for any dampness or strong odors. I have seen a few leaks in this area and usually you'll catch a whiff of raw gas inside the vehicle as you sit in traffic or when you walk by the vehicle after shutting it off. Because of the risk of fire you should have this smell checked out as soon as possible.Good luck, hope this helps!

2004 dodge intrepid a/c problems


Check for loss of coolant also. If you can see/smell oily deposits on windshield, it's unlikely it's from the a/c system as there is relatively little lubricant there. More likely your heater core is leaking and allowing coolant to be blown up onto the windshield. There will also be a distinctive odor with this.

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid that smells funny when I turn on the AC. I have looked it up and the forums say to change the Cabin Air Filter. I can't find where the filter is?!


You do not have a cabin filter....Two things......you need to check (freon preasure) you may have a freon leak from the AC evap coil behind the instrrment panel,the smell is AC freon pag oil from the AC system, it smells funny. Or you may have mildew build up on your evap coil there is a spray to disinfect the coil.Check auto zone or pep boys....Good luck my friend
