I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,

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.

The dryer is taking 2-3 full cycles to completely dry the clothes. I have already unplugged the dryer, checked the hose, completely cleaned it of any dirt that was clogged a little. Also used the vaccum...

if you have heat in the dryer you have a blockage somewhere in the dryer or the vent line,how long is the vent line?also try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and run it to see if it dries,i had a guy tell me he cleaned the vent line,i stuck a leaf blower in the vent line and blew out a birds nest.also check the outside duct,if there's a cage or screen on it remove it and keep it off and then blow out the line. also the duct that the lint filter slides into should be removed and cleaned.send the model number so i can look up your machine,if it's gas you could have bad gas coils,they work fine until they heat up like 15 to 30 minutes then no heat until they cool down and then they will work for a few minutes and stop again,send model number off of the dryer,open the door and look around the opening,you should see a tag with the model and serial number.

Kenmore gas dryer works but no heat, model# 110.20702990.

make sure the exhaust vent is not plugged. shut gas off, disconnect hose, start dryer. stop and reconnect hose turn gas back on and try again.
also a propane dryer can work on on natural gas but it is very dangerous to run a natural gas dryer on propane because the orfice is too big.

Low heat output

A clogged or partially clogged vent . Especially if vents up thru the wall . If it vents straight out , make sure you have good air flow to the outside . Make sure the vent hose has no sharp kinks also . Try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the dryer . If clothes dry fine , that tells you the problem is elsewhere . Normally , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . A heat for a few minutes then stops heating but continues to run complaint ,would be bad coils on the gas valve .

Gas runs out of carburator throat.motor runs fine

clean your carb one of the floats is stuck. or you have a loose gas line that could be tightened with a hose clamp.
