SOURCE: Dodge Intrepid 1996 Water Pump Replacement Needs

a timing belt. the water pump uses it to turn it and you got to take it off to change the pump anyway so you might as well get a new one.also the hydralic timing belt tensioner should be replaced at the same time just to be will need anti freeze of course as well

SOURCE: 2000 dodge intrepid 3.2 l engine noise and oil light on

Hi, if the oil light comes on when you rev the engine at high revs and also comes on when the engine is warm then this means one of 2 things it either means your oil pump is up the shoot and needs repairing( this is a big job) or it means you have an oil leak and the oil pressure drops when the oil gets thinner due to being warm, so the first thing to do would be to have a good look around the engine for signs of oil leaks, its a good idea to get a big piece of cardboard and place this under your engine when you are parked up then check for signs of oil after it has been standing.
how ever you may not see oil on the floor due to you have a scratch guard under the car where the sump is so the oil my be falling on this and not the floor.

check the oil level if this is low the oil light will come on when warm or when engine is revved due to it being pumped round the engine, so check the level to see if its low.

if the level is ok and you find no leaks then one thing to do first would be to get the oil and oil filter changed and make sure you get the correct oil type for your car to ensure its the right type for your engine.

another problem you could have is a blocked breather from the cam cover to the sump this is an over flow for any oil and air that builds up in the engine you will find this towards the back of the cam cover and its pushed onto the cam cover and it goes down to just above the sump so you could remove this and check for blockage.

but if after changing the oil and filter the light still comes on then the chances are you oil pump is failing and is no longer keeping the oil pressure at normal running power, this will be bad for your car and can cause the engine to seize so if you need to drive the car only drive it when the lights off else you will need to get new engine, it dont take long for the engine to be starved from oil and then seize.

i hope i have given you a few things to check and be getting on with

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My 2000 dodge intrepid will stop running an then wont crank back up until after about 2 to 3 hours. I have canged the oil put new transmisson fluid in it changed the fuses.

Oil and fuses have little to do with your problem (unless a particular fuse keeps blowing) though changing oil is never a bad thing to do.
Likely you have an ignition component that is getting hot and internally expanding and causing an internal short when it's hot.
Unfortunately without the benefit of any testing, I can only suggest that you test the crank position sensor, coil and cam sensor. Also be sure that the fuel pump is running after it shuts down...Pump is in the tank and with the key turned on it should hum for a moment.. If not, check the pump voltage and the pump relay. Instructions for testing are contained in relatively inexpensive manuals such as haynes or chilton. You will also need a multi-meter (digital). Both items are always good to have and will help you many times over the years.

My oil light keeps coming on in my car, but when I check the oil it's full.

Could be a faulty oil sending unit, which is usually located by the oil filter, a weak oil pump, or just needs a good old oil and filter change.

2000 dodge intrepid 2.7..Queston is will a 3.2

not really a complete wiring change and some sensors it is a head ache unless you have the money and a professional please be careful if you are to try this yourself. We all know the 2.7l has lots of problems. The engine was made for synthetic oil and the dip stick is not accurate. I own four of them. nice cars and the Canadian Built engines as any other engine have bugs that need to be worked out. thank you for your time, Lee Davidian

Loud clicking/clanking noise on 200 Intrepid

Sounds like the motor is going out. 2.7s are bad about rod bearings going out. If you don't use the correct weight oil, and change it every 3K, they don't hold up too well.
