My 97 Dodge Intrepid wouldn't start one morning but a few hours later was fine. Driving it that day it randomly quit while driving and now it will start but then shake a bit and shut off a few seconds later. Any ideas what it could be?

Sounds like the fuel pump or a faulty connecting on the battery like corrosion or loose connection. It is unusual for a relay to go out like that. It could be a loose connector on the ignition switch itself so you'll want to check that as well, in fact start by checking that and if you have tapped the fuse block for an alarm or other add on type equipment check for a loose wire causing a short. This is especially true if you had a Starter kill switch installed as part of an Alarm system.

First place I would check are the battery terminals. Remove them and clean the posts, re-attach and tighten them. You can buy a tool for cleaning the posts at your local auto store.

When you say won't start do you mean it will crank over but not fire off or do you mean it doesn't' turn over at all? We refer to this a "No crank no start" or "Cranks will not start"

My 97 intrepid will start up, but putter out within seconds


Map Sensor or Crank Sensor. If you have a code reader the map sensor should throw a code, the crank sensor most often will not. Both will cause the car to start, idle to around 1,000 R's and then die.

The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.
