Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid
This could be a typical "low battery jumped timing chain problem" The 2.7 engine is very sensitive to low battery/cranking power and oil sludge buildup. If the vehicle cranked slower than usual with dirty oil, the adjuster to the timing chain might not have enough pressure to keep the chain tight enough when starting, thus letting the chain turn loosely and losing your timing. There a special access plugs on the heads to check and see if the chain is indeed loose. On the other hand,
If you had a check engine lite on before the problem of no starting arose, have it analyzed . the gas pump in this vehicle is in the tank so that must be checked since lower than regular prssure will not let the injectors work.
Unfortunately when this happens the intake valves will all get bent and you must remove the heads and etc. etc.
