Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
Finally, fixed the problem. After testing the car with the fuel pressure gage, I found out that the car had proper pressure 46 with regulator and 55 without. After that tested all the voltages on the sensors. They checked fine so I disconnected the spark plugs while running (be careful not to get shocked, it happened to me a couple of times). Found that plug 3 and 6 not getting spark. So i checked the coil. With the car still running I pulled off the wireset at the coil one by one. All checked good except plug 3. That told me that I was not getting any spark from the coil for spark plug 3. I decided to change the coil. However. I also decided to change the wireset because plug 6 wasn't sparking at the plug. After changing coil and wireset, the car is running like a champ. Wish I would have checked it in the first place. It would have save me about $500. I changed out the fuel pump $300. I bought a new fuel filter $10.00. I bought 2 new O2 sensors $100.00 and also I bought a new fuel pressure gage $50.00. Lastly, new coil and wireset $90.00. The car is running like new now. I think better than we we first recieved it. At least I know the fuel pump, O2 sensors are good and now I have a new tool (looking at the positive side). Plus the car is finally fix and running great!!

Check the motor mounts! If ok, then the ground from the engine to the body. Should solve it! Frankster016
