2002 intrepid 2.7 Im getting no crank from the starter and I dont hear the fuel pump kicking on when the ignition key is turned on, I do get power to the radio and dash, Ive checked fuses and replaced...


Under the hood, there should be a fuse block. Remove the cover and there will be a 20amp(i think) fuse that protects the fuel pump and starter circuit. I've run into this problem many times and every time it ends up being the starter that blows the fuse.

Where is the starter and how do I tell if its a 3.3 or 3.5?


STARTER MOUNTED ON THE SIDE THE ENGINE. CLOSE TO ENGINE FLYWHEEL.ITS WHERE FLYWHEEL AND TORQUE CONNECT. YOU HAVE TO RAISE SUPPORT CAR ON JACK STANDS TO GET TO IT. YOU CAN TELL A 3.3 AND 3.5 ENGINES BY THERE STARTERS. THE 3.3L ENGINE USES A NIPPONDENSO STARTER MOTOR. THE 3.5L ENGINE USES A DELCO STARTER MOTOR

How do I replace the starter on a 2000 Dodge Intrepid?


Before changing a starter, you need to do some testing. First, check that your battery is holding 12v or better. Next, check that there is 12v at the main connection on the starter. Then chjeck that with the key turned to "start" there is 12v at the small terminal on the starter.If not, check the relay that operates the starter.(it may be bad). If readings are good, and block ground and positive cable is connected and clean, replace starter.
To remove starter, disconnect positive cable from battery, unbolt starter, remove harness. Sometimes removal involves twisting unit and manuvering around stuff that's in the way. If you find that does not work, then remove whatever is keeping it from coming out. Yes: it comes out from underneath. (unless you see an obvious clear path to remove from above there is no set rule, just do what's easier) Replacement is the opposite of removal...no tricks. If your radio has an anti theft code, know it before you start or after you are finished it won't work. You will loose settings though.
good luck

Replacing a starter on a 1997 Dodge Intrepid


No, you can access the starter from the bottom of the engine without having to remove anything else. I replaced the starter on my 94 3.3 myself without having to remove anything else. Good Luck!!!!!
