Have you tried jump starting the car? If it turns over more then you have an electrical problem with either your battery or battery cables, or possibly a ground issue. If it doesn't help to jump start it then your starter may be bad. The last piece of the puzzle is the ignition switch. There's usually a starter test terminal under the hood near the firewall that you can apply twelve volts to and it should turn over, this will tell you if the switch is bad and will also test the start or solenoid. You can also try applying 12 volts directly to the solenoid but it might be hard to get to.

I found a lot of useful tips in this article: http://www.aa1car.com/library/us1296.htm check it out it has a lot of information.

Also look here: http://newcarbuyingguide.com/index.php/news/main/1856/event=view

Also consider your security system as a source of the problem you may have a problem with an interlock or security switch.

How did you first find out about this problem? Did it die on you or would it just not start one day? Do you have the 2.7 L engine?

Have you tried jumping it to make sure you are getting enough power to turn it over quick enough?

How much is it turning over?

Please get back to me on my questions so I can narrow down this problem for you

    Also check the starter solenoid. You can take a flat-headed screwdriver and touch the two points on it together to see if the engine will turn over and start from there

    Check the starter relay and fuses and after all of this, then check the starter motor. While cranking the motor over the battery voltage should not drop below 8.5 volts and the amperage draw should not exceed 300 amps. Also check to make sure the engine isn't seized by cranking then engine over with wrench on the flywheel pulley

    Let me know how this all checks out

    Intrepids are known to be a bad car. I have one with the 2.7L that broke a rod and now I'm putting a 3.2 into it. Getting rid of it may have been the best choice you ever made with that car. good luck with the new one

Sounds like the starter silonoid. Hit it with a hammer and it might engage. If it engages it could have just been jammed. Your transmission flywheel could be in a bind with it also. Can you hear it click? Have someone try to start it while you hit it.

I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future. If you need more help, feel free to keep asking, but keep the original information so I can see it.

    Have you tried everything that everyone has suggested?

    If you have done all of this, it could be the timing. The timing could have jumped. Do you have a timing light.

    If it was running before you did the work, you might have knocked something loose.

    The control module could be bad.

    This sounds stupid, but make sure the fuel filter is flowing in the correct direction. If it is on wrong it could stop the fuel flow or deter it.

    Do you have fuel pressure? There is a valve, like a tire valve in the fuel line near the fuel injectors. You can check for pressure there. Have you checked the fuel pump?

    What do you mean by not turning over all the way. That is kind of vague. What was your initial problem? Why did you change everything the first time?

    I would like to keep helping, but something like this sometimes takes time to figure out. I have been working on cars for over 25 years. Sometimes it is something easy to fix that we did not think of at first. Keep posting and one of us will figure it out.

    You did not rate this as fixed, Are you still having problems?

First check the battery of your car and also check whether the voltage supply is proper or not

Repacing fuel filter on 1996 intrepid


1) Relieve the fuel system pressure by first removing the fuel pump relay from the Power Distribution Center. Then, start the engine and let it to run until it stalls. Try starting it again and allow it to run until it stalls. Continue restarting the engine until the car will no longer start. Turn off the ignition.
2) Disconnect one electrical connector from an injector. Use an alligator clip to connect an end of a jumper wire to either injector terminal. Connect the other end of the jumper wire to the positive side of the battery. Then, connect an end of a second jumper wire to the other injector terminal. Very briefly touch the other end of the jumper wire to a ground.
3) Locate the fuel filter, which is part of the fuel pressure regulator mounted on the fuel pump module. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then lower the fuel tank. Disconnect the fuel lines from the filter.
4) Remove the fuel line from the pressure regulator. Remove the filter/regulator by pushing in on the locking tab on the filter as you turn the regulator to unlock it. Then, pull it straight up.
5) Push the new fuel filter into the fuel pump module. Turn to lock it in place. Connect the fuel lines, and then you can reinstall the fuel tank. Check for leaks when you start the engine on your Dodge Intrepid.

My 95 intrepid is really hard on fuel


temp sensors, lambda/oxygen sensor/ reading wrong temp - they would both increasse fuel consumption - have the diagnostics checked at garage.
Air filter, it it clogged or really dirty?
Tyre pressures - make sure they are upto reccomended pressure, (extra pressure reduces rolling resistance and increases fuel economy but at the cost of grip...)
Binding brakes?
Fuel Leak?

04 dodge intrepid sxt not picking up fuel, wont start


You may have to replace the fuel filter, the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump.

First I would check the fuel pressure and also check for leaks. If there are no leaks and the pressure is fine than your fuel injectors are probably clogged or you may have an ignition problem or even a compression problem.

If you don't have good pressure and there are no leaks I would first replace the fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator. If problem still exists I would then check and replace the fuel pump.

If you need any help in any one of these procedures just post it and I will give you step by step instructions.
