check the asd relay swap it with another like it. also check fuses and old car alarm if it had one.the cam and crank sensor will not affect fuel pressure. the cam sensor should not stop this car from starting. but the crank sensor will. good luck.

a carfax will show excatly what the dealer saystem says that it has been done.. if you see the reinforcements on the rail then it has been completed.. the other one is the floor shifter interlock rod.... have any dealer run the vin number again they can tell you the date and dealer that did the repairs.... if he ever took it in for any type of service at the dealer even a oil change they have to repair it at no charge maybe he just dont remember it getting done.. the wife or family member may have used the car... but once you have the date and dealer that did it work it may help jog some memory..if the rail is leaking and the repairs are shown to have ben done you can purchase the repair parts on your own from a dealer CADJ7902 is the rail package..

Dear Ron, you have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter. You have checked the fuel pump relay. Still no fuel in rail. Try bypassing fuel relay with jumper from batt to fuel pump. If o/k then check computer for ground to relay. This system uses a relay that is operated by the computer that supplies a ground for the relay to operate. The wire color is green,16 gage. If the ground is not available then "no fuel" Check this with a test light. Key on and crank apply test light to ground wire and other end of light to ground. You should hear relay click and get fuel. If this checks out you will need to replace computer or get creative with rewiring the relay so it works without computer input. Good luck Moe

SOURCE: 93 intrepid just shuts down

I had what seems like the same problem. After taking it to a couple of shops and paying hundreds of dollars for it not being fixed, I found that a sensor was losing contact intermittently due to a short in the wiring harness connecter. I forget what the sensor is, but it is located on the passenger side back by the fire wall, near the exhaust manifold.
Try having the engine running and wiggle that wiring harness to see if the engine cuts off. Hope this helps,
JD

Take it back and he will fix it, maybe a o-ring where the fuel line connects to the fuel rail or if he removed the injectors, then a o-ring maybe pinched, loose fuel line fitting. something minor, but dangerous, can catch fire real easy, I would have it towed to be safe.

Lately my dodge 1997 intrepid takes a few turns of the key to start. It never had that problem before.


if i recall the 3.5l engine had the habit of leaking fuel at front top of engine. it is a steel pipe that goes from one fuel rail to the other, the orings leak. just give it a little push down while running and if orings are bad it will spray fuel [stand to the side when doing this]
also the plastic fuel rails were known for cracking.
both of these concerns were recalled on some model years call local dealer to see if yours is covered. the 3.3l had a fuel rail recall as well.
reason i mentioned these is if there is a leak the gas will drain back to tank or slowly leak out so when you try to start engine it will crank longer because fuel pressure will have to build back up

1995 Dodge Intrepid v6 starts and everything runs OK except below 35 degrees. I've replaced the flywheel sensor and EGR sensors. Is there a "cold Start" valve or sensor that needs replacing? Stan


Safety Recall No. 790
Fuel Rail O-Rings and Reinforcements
have this car checked for the (TSB) technical service bulletin this will help you start the car in cold weather -- too try this before you start the car turn key to on position then back off 3 times each time you should hear a hum from the electric fuel pump-- and if it starts up better then the recall will help you
his recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 3.5L engine ("F" in the 8th VIN Position),Thanks, Lee Davidian

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.
