Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

My 2002 intrepid runs great when cold. Replaced spark plugs, gas cap, and oil change. Still, when it gets warm it seems to jump and misfire. I take my foot of the gas and on deceleration the rpm gauge jumps from 1000 to 1300 back and forth, quickly. Check Eng light is on as well. Don't know what it is. Sensor maybe??

Do a self test to access the codes. put the key in the ignition and turn to "on" (not cranking just the dash lights on) then turn the key back one click. Do this a total of 3 times.


off-on, off-on, off-on. The codes will either blink out on the check engine light in pairs of numbers (ending in 5,5 ) or will display on the digital odometer. Have a pen and paper ready to write down the numbers.

post your codes here.

    I checked with a self test like you said. It gives me the codes: P0700 and P0108 and then says done and the engine light blinks ten times and stays on. What are theses codes telling me to replace? Thanks for the help.

    P0108 (M) Map Sensor Voltage Too High - MAP sensor input above maximum acceptable voltage.

    P0700 (M) Check Transmission DTC’s - Transmission has told computer to display the check engine light

    time to check the Transmission for unknown problem, however, fix the above problem first. who knows if it will solve all of the issues.

    time to get dirty.

2005 Pt Cruiser running poor at acceration


If plugs helped...the problem went away...then it could be a plug getting fouled by excess fuel or oil. Look at your new plugs and see if they are discolored or went with gas. could be an injector problem. It could also be an ignition problem. You moved the plug wires around and they worked for a few minutes till the new "connection in the wire" burned up. Check your plug wires with an ohm meter. Check your plugs for fuel or oil on plug...a sign of stuck injector, oil leak, misfire. Did it really help or was it just wishful thinking?

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS that up to 3000 rpm seems to run fine. at 3000, it starts to shudder and miss. any ideas/


Yea , take it to a qualified repair shop that has a scan tool that can show misfire data . That's the best way . What engine ? 3.0 L or 3.9 L . Both have COP - coil on plug ignition system . I have replaced a bunch of these coil's an spark plugs . The spark plug get so worn the spark can't jump the gap an fries the coil and if it goes like that long enough it will short out the driver (transistor) in the PCM engine computer . The last one i worked on cost the owner over 2 grand. New computer , programming , new coils , plugs , plus my labor .

Sounds like my 2002 nissan pathfinder is bogging down when i gas it , it runs fine but gets crappy gas miledge


needs a tuneup, definately change fuel & air filters, replace spark plugs & wires, distributor cap / rotor, change oil & filter, it would'nt hurt to replace cat conv., it restricts exhaust flow, between you & me , take it off, put a straight pipe in its place, is your inspection up to date ? you'll have a year to replace your CAT, before next inspection. just remember that. nissans this year usually need to have the timing belt replaced, nissan charges $900 + to do it. BIG DIFFERANCE ! see how it runs after tuneup, also , you may end up replacing both the cam & crank sensors down the road. I would replace the OXYGEN sensor/s as part of tuneup, it will help a great deal.

Hello, i can seem to get rid off a missfire in my ford explorer 4x4 4.6 v8 from 2002. i changed the plugs and it ran great for about ten minutes, then it started miss firering again. it is even worse on...


If your coils/wires are on the correct cylinders then, with the truck running unplug your alternator if the truck runs smooth then you have a short inside the alternator causing change in electrical current, if this is case replace alternator.

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant ES 4 cylinder and have a check engine light message on i had the code read at auto zone and they told me the third cylinder is misfiring and when it idles it jumps around...


Misfire means you need spark plugs replaced. Or spark plug coils.

That's why the whole car starts shaking because its running basically on 3 cylinders and not 4 as supposed. There is no gas compression on the 3rd cylinder because once again the spark plug is "misfiring"

There also might be even a bigger problem which could be the distributor cap where the coils are connecting outside the engine.
once you fix the problem the check engine will turn off immediately

hope that helps.

99 5.2 durango :pulled codes for multipe missfire cylinder #5-7


Aloha We have just replaced all of what you have replaced, plus water pump, fuel pump, pcv valve and 02 sensor. Took it to mechanic today we had misfire on 1,2,6,7. Mechanic said that the 99 dodge is known for bad computers, he checked ours and works great turns out that it was the coil. Ours was jumping 1/4 inch and had a orange/yellow spark. it is supposed to have a 1 inch spark and be blue. This has solved our problems after 527 dollars later.
Check the coil!

Cold rough idle and engine light flashed


Spark plugs/wires might need to be replaced. Check your spark plug gaps and check your spark plug module harness connection on both sides of the engine. The check engine blinking indicates short/misfiring. If there is short in the harness, you can check it by moving around the wires close to connector one by one while the engine is running. You might need to remove and ckean the Throttle Body.

88 toyota has little power when gas is pressed


your engine seems to be running rich. that may be do to a bad spark plug, spark plug wire, bad distributor cap. If you have a 22re you should check for trouble codes by jumping TE1 and E1.

You should also check your engine timing. With a timing light. The timing marks are located on or above the oil pump. keep in mind in order to get timing right you must have TE1 and E1 jumped. Set to 5 degrees advanced. If your engine is improperly timed it will accelerate slowly, and get worse mileage.

Also adjust/Check engine valves appropriately. they will cause low power.

Also does it misfire at idle?
