Clicking noise..car won't start

I have a 2004 dodge intrepid 2.7L engine. My problem is... I was driving down the road and the car stopped. We tried jumping it and that did not help. So a friend(who is a mechanic) looked at it and said that the starter was locked up. We replaced the starter and the car still makes a clicking noise when you try to start it but it won't start. We cleaned the battery post and tried jumping the car again but it still won't start...do you have any other suggestions that I can do?

    If you pull on the fan belt while the car is in neutral can you get the engine to turn over slightly? try removing the spark plugs first.

Hopping I'm wrong but I was working on a caravan and what you describe sounds very much like the same problem. The engine was destroyed. Hear is a video how to bench test a starter

Under my 2004 dodge grand caravan hood near the tire we hear a ticking noise which goes faster as we drive. Slows down when we slow down. What could it be?


Could be engine related or driveline related. Do you only hear the noise when the car is driving down the road? Or does it also
happen when the engine is running and the vehicle is in park?

2004 Intrepid- when I start the car the RPM surges. If I put it in gear right away and try driving it continues surging down the street. If I start the car and wait like a minute before driving it usually...


The check engine light should be on and when it is the engine controls are in Limp mode. That means the computer is using a pre-set list of settings to try to keep the engine running long enough to get the car to a shop.
You need to get the problem with the MAP sensor fixed and get the light turned off.

do you hear the starter turning the engine over or do you hear a single click?

If you hear a single click than a new starter will solve the problem.

Check the alternator,it should read at the battery 13.65 to 14.25 volts with the headlights on,and ac on high blower ,it should not read less than this,if it does the alternator is bad.

2004 dodge intrepid driveing down road and it died and wont start or get fire to plugs is it a sensor


More then likely yes, I would check your Crankshaft sensor, that what send the signal to the coil packs then to the spark plugs, the sensor is held on with a 10mm bolt on the side of the engine block on the passenger side.

I was driving down the road, went through a green light, car just turned off, tried to restart but all i got was a clicking noise, we have changed the fuel pump and still nothing. Can anyone help me


the clicking noise i would say is the solenoid to the starter. with the intrepid the solenoid is attached to the starter. so you will have to replace both. you can get the starter at any local parts stores for under 200. as your replacing the starter i would check the wires going to the solenoid and inspect them for any damage before putting them on the new starter

If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe. 
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.

2004 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 engine, and oil light keeps coming on.


Major issues with the 2.7L motor. design flaw causes oil to hang in the heads and "cook" creating sludge. Sludge builds until the passage to the timing chain is blocked starving the chain and causing near instant failure...this is a "rattling" or Roulette wheel sound. The 2.7L is an "interference" type engine. When the chain breaks or jumps, the cams stop in position thus leaving the valves wherever they may land. The pistons keep on moving though....and kiss whatever valves happen to be open. Bye Bye Motor. Using Synthetic oil EARLY and exclusively cures the sludge issue. Replacing the timing chain and components at interval is crucial...don't wait for it to break or jump!
