Replace the cap--is the radiator damaged? No reason to replace the water pump. Boiling is caused by leak, faulty thermostat, clogged radiator, or head gasket.

Not building up pressure in coolant system cap and lower hose is cold


Your pump or thermostat may need replacing.

Thermostat replacement is much cheaper and an easier job on most engines. You can take yours out and check it by boiling in a pot of water to see if it opens. If it opens as it approaches the boiling point of the water and closes as it gets cold - pop it back in the truck. Otherwise replace it or; replace it from the "get go" (they're not big money).

How to replace water pump 99 2.7


Hope this helps you....

Instructions
  1. Prepare the Dodge Intrepid
    • 1 Lay out a drop cloth underneath the Dodge Intrepid to protect the floor from coolant spills. Designate an area to lay out each part alongside its bolts and connecting hoses and wires. Use a drop cloth here as well, some of the parts will have traces of grease and coolant.
    • 2 Disconnect the negative battery cable, using a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that secures the cable to the negative (-) post. Pull the cable away from the battery post.
    • 3 Use a jack to elevate the Dodge Intrepid and jack stands to shore up the jack. Release the pressure in the radiator by removing the cap. Take out the drain plug located underneath the radiator. Catch the coolant in a resealable container
    • 4 Use a grease pencil to mark on the timing belt its position in each pulley before removal. This will save time when reinstalling. If needed, replace the timing belt and skip marking the old one.
    Remove the Damaged Pump
    • 5 Locate the water pump on the Dodge Intrepid. It's mounted on the front of the engine block and connected to the radiator and various other parts through a series of hoses. It's rotated by the timing belt. Study these parts, as you'll have to remove them.
    • 6 Disconnect or remove the parts in front of the water pump, using an adjustable wrench. In the most common Dodge Intrepid engine--the 2.7L--you'll find, in order: the upper radiator crossmember, fan module, accessory drive belts, crankshaft damper, timing cover, timing chain and guide wires.
    • 7 Unbolt the water pump from the engine block, using an adjustable wrench. You may have to use a chisel to gently break the seal between the mount and the pump. Discard both the pump and the bolts.
    • 8 Clean off the mounting area with a shop rag.
    Install the New Pump
    • 9 Inspect the new water pump to ensure it's identical to the old pump and free of any metal splinters or debris.
    • 10 Arrange the new water pump on the mount. You won't need sealant for the o-ring on a Dodge Intrepid. Hold the water pump and o-ring in place as you secure it with the new bolts. Tighten them with a torque wrench to 105 inch pounds torque in any order.
    • 11 Install the timing belt and wires, using the grease pencil marks to guide you in installation. Install the rest of the parts in the order removed. The camshaft must be reconnected with a torque wrench at 125 foot pounds torque.
    • 12 Replace the radiator's drain plug and refill the radiator with the amount and type of coolant specified in your owner's manual. Release the jack and jack stands.
    • 13 Attach the negative battery cable to the post and tighten the screw on the clamp. Crank the Dodge Intrepid's engine and check for leaks. Then, close the hood.

Ticking, water boiling, temp guage reads normal. replaced thermostat housing...no sugnificant change


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If it's not overheating then it's just normal. The radiator coolant is really boiling and it must not be opened when the engine is running on normal temperature. If the engine runs sluggish and the temp is still in normal then there surely is problem with the gauge. Have it replaced including the water pump of the car. The coolant must flow freely on the radiator and if the water pump is faulty it will flow slow which may cause overheating.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2001 Dodge Intrepid overheating - blown engine?


The timing belt drives the water pump so it would be advisable to replace the timing belt if you replace the pump and visa versa. The timing belt should have been replaced at 105,000 miles and if you did replace it at that time, then I would not replace it again unless it is soaked in leaking coolant. If not, then for sure replace it. Replace the tensioner if it is defective. You need to find a good mechanic that is not just guessing as to what is wrong. If you have no apparent external leak and you are seeing a milky substance on the underside of the oil cap, you may have a blown head gasket. Do you see white smoke coming from the exhaust? Do you see air bubbles escaping from the radiator with the cap off and the engine running? If so you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. A compression test will help determine this one way or the other. A dye test on the cooling system will also help tell you where the coolant is leaking. If the water pump is bad it should be leaking. 130,000 miles is not that much on a modern engine. This engine will easily last 200,000 miles if maintained properly. So it is worth repairing, but that is your decision. You just need to find a good mechanic that actually knows what they are doing.

Most common problem causing this code is the purge solenoid. A quick smoke test will show if you have any leaks in the system. If no leaks and the fuel cap is installed properly it's the purge solenoid.

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.
