Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
Is the water pump on 02 dodge interpid 2.2 ran by the timing chain?
Posted by Anonymous on
If you mean the 2.7 liter V6 (I think the Intrepid only came with the 2.7 or 3.5 liter V6), the answer is yes. The water pump is driven by the timing chain.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa.com
you must have the 2.7 liter engine if so the weep hole for the water pump is inside the engine and yes the water pump goes out and leaks anti freeze and water into engine causing it to sludge up. depending on how long you ran engine with water in it depends on how long engine will last. if not long you should be ok. i would remove the oil pan and clean the oil pump screen and pan. the estimate is correct. the water pump is in line with the timing chain. i would replace the chain and guides while in there as well. flush engine after all is done. use the cheap oil to run engine and add flush then drain and add synthetic oil for high mileage engine. I own one and i had the same problem. i drilled through the timing plate a hole and braised a little pipe to the weep hole to water pump so for the next time the pump leaks it will leak outside of the engine.
