If the car has hydraulic(oil) lifters on the camshaft that operate the engine valve sytem and the clicking noise is in this area ,,,
then a oil chang will boost the tired oil from the lifters and flush the old oil out ,,making the car run a lot better

How to find out if you have a leak in your radiator on a 2001 dodge intrepid


Check around for a "radiator tester".
I have one, but I'm in Florida.
It is a thing that attaches to the top of the radiator, and it has a pump handle and you pump it up and it will show you where your leak is by pressurizing your radiator.
Some places would test it for you, if you have nice mechanics.
Be blessed.

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.

What is the quickest way to change a thermostat on a 2003 dodge intrepid


Hello Kalel6877...the "quickest" way is let a shop put it on a hoist and do it...but if you want to tackle this one i'll walk you through it.
Raise your Dodge Intrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps. Set parking brake and/or chock wheels
Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitable container.
On Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lower radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at the end of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off the thermostat housing.
Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pull off the cover. On 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access to the thermostat housing behind the alrernator by working from beneath the engine.
Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the new thermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any old gasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install the new thermostat gasket.
Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105 inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp. Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negative battery cable.
Start your Dodge Intrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reaches normal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tighten the hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.
Thats about it...jack her down and pat yourself on the back.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take time to rate me a fixya.

Overheating


Hi. I have put together a guide to help you with this replacement of the thermostat.


Step1 Raise your DodgeIntrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug atthe bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitablecontainer. Reuse the coolant if relatively new and clean. Step2Follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing in all enginetypes except the 2.7L. In Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lowerradiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at theend of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off thethermostat housing. Step3Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pulloff the cover. In 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access tothe thermostat housing behind the alternator by working from beneath the engine. Step4Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the newthermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any oldgasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install thenew thermostat gasket. Step5Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp.Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negativebattery cable. Step6 Start your DodgeIntrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reachesnormal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tightenthe hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.

  • Removethe alternator drive belt and bolts holding the alternator in place andset the alternator aside for easiest access to the thermostat in DodgeIntrepid 2.7L engines, if desired.
  • Don't drain the coolant from your Dodge Intrepid while the engine is hot.
Please rate and god bless.
