Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

1997 Dodge Intrepid has set up for several months while in hospital. Will not fire. Put small gas amount in air intake and it fires and runs for 10-15 seconds. Gas probably not getting to injectors. Pump has click sound while listening through gas cap when engine turned on. Fuses OK. Would bad fuel filter stop enough gas from getting through line?

Several months could be a tank of bad gas. When turning the ignition to on position the pump runs for 3 to 5 seconds to pressurize the system, next find the valve on fuel rail and press it, Shield with a rag while doing this. You should get fuel. Check the way it smells, bad gas has an awful smell that can make you hurl! Attach a fuel pressure tester, it should be around 50lbs. If it's bad empty the tank by pressing the needle and relieving the pressure. Next disconnect fuel line before the filter get a container to catch the gas. IN the engine conpartment disconnect the fuel pump relay and put a jumper wire to run the pump until tank is drained. Instal new filter and pump if needed and add a can of "Seafoam" to the tank with fresh gas. Run pump until there's fuel at the fuel rail then put relay back in. now we should have ignition and constant running. Hope this helped.

Gas smell in car


There is a recall on the fuel rail for your vehicle. In my case I had 2 leaking fuel injectors. The intake manifold needs to come off, but it pretty easy to change the o-rings on the leaking injectors. Costs is about $25 for the new o-ring and about 2 hours of your time.

Wont cold start 1997 intrpid 3.5l


A faulty Intake air temperature sensor can cause that. If it's faulty and supplying computer with a signal that says it's freezing cold, when its not, then it would cause it to dump excessive fuel, when it isn't necessary. Might be smart & cheaper, to run it in and have it scanned for codes, at an auto parts place, or trusted mechanic. With all these sensors that can cause similar symptoms, why gamble, have it scanned & know for sure.

Ignition Module


They don't have an ignition module per say.. You firing is controled by the PCM, which is the computer and is locater under your air intake box, which has to be remover for access. How did you come up with the idea it was a bad ignition module??
