Check it out for a no start condition. If it overheated so bad that it did not have compression, and you changed the timing belt to fix the compression problem, then it is burned up. Other than that also look for fuel and spark in the cylinders. There is still some kind of hope!

I have coolant leaking from the bottom pulley? what could cause this?


You don't say what make and model you have, but on many engines now, the water pump is behind the timing cover which is the same cover behind the serpentine pulleys. So it is probable your water pump is leaking in there, and coolant escaping from behind the cover. It is not usually economic to overhaul the pump itself.

If your engine has a timing belt, I'd advise changing that too as it has to come off.

2.7 litre 2000 intrepid coolant leakappears to be getting worse.It trickled now creating puddles.Hard to locate appears to be wher bottom hose attches to block


it could be a bad lower rad hose however it can also be the water pump leaking,these pumps are located behind the timing cover and when they leak the fluid will run down and drip off in this area,the timing cover will have to be removed to inspect the water pump for leaking,a pressure test of the cooling system is the best to find the leak.if the pump is leaking then this is the time to replace the timing belts as the pump sits behind the belts.

How can i tell if my water pump is bad


If your water pump is bad then it will be leaking, or it will seize up. Real easy to tell if one is bad.

A leak under the water pump? Just put new water pump in and did not fix the problem.


When you replace the water pump you have to loosen the bolts that also go though the timing chain cover. This have to be removed and the gasket behind it replaced as well as two water pump gaskets. Check all your clamps (best to use new ones) first, but you may be having gasket problems between the pump, pump backing plate, timing chain cover and engine block.

Waterpump removal my 2000 dodge intrepid wants to overheats when idling but is fine when driving


The chances that the waterpump is the problem is slim. A water pump is a simple system, with one moving part. It only goes out when the seal is worn and starts to leak.

I would look closer at the thermostat (1st) and possibly a radiator problem (2nd).

Maybe even a coolant system flush would solve your problem.

I would start with the therm. the the flush and last a radiato replacement.

I got coolant pouring from the most bottom of my crankshaft on a 96 dodge intrepid. The secondary belt that pulls the water pump and air is gone. I'd like to know what caused this and how much the repair...


If you have a 2.7 engine, your water pump is in need of replacement bad. It's located behind the timing cover and is turned by the timing chain. When the water pump goes out, coolant pours out in the inside of the timing belt and into the oil pan leaving the same water in the oil look as if you had a blown headgasket.
