2002 Dodge intrepid se engine
If this vehicle has a chain, they generally NEVER break. Apparently
the person who is working on it doesn't know what he's doing.
The chain has several chain guides and a tensioner. Chances are
one of those is causing the chain to jump a few links.
Let me know how you make out. Reach me at email@example.com

Locked up steering wheel
I think your steering wheel may have been under tension when you parked it. It happens to everyone. Try turning the wheel the direction that it will move and turn the key with foot on brake to disengage the locking mechanism. If this doesn't work, reply back to this post and I'll help you further...MK

How do i purge cooling system for 3.5 intrepid 2002?
Start by repeatedly squeezing all of the coolant hoses you can access. While doing this you should see bubbles coming up through the radiator cap opening. After doing this for awhile, top up the coolant and drive for a bit. After the car cools down you may want to repeat the process. Keep checking it for awhile as properly "burping" a coolant system can be a pain and take awhile. You know you're done when there is no more air at the top of the rad cap after driving (and letting it cool down)

I have a 2002 Dodge Intrepid with a code of odb480
This is a generic powertrain diagnostic trouble code (DTC), which means it covers all makes/models, 1996-newer. However, specific troubleshooting steps will vary depending your vehicle. pulling the code P0480 displayed, if refers to the engine cooling fan circuit. It is a generic code applying to all OBD II (on board diagnostics) vehicles. The PCM (powertrain control module) senses the increase in engine temperature through the CTS (coolant temperature sensor) located near the thermostat. When the temperature reaches about 223-degrees F (value depends on make/model/engine), the PCM will command the cooling fan relay to turn on the fan. It does so by supplying the ground to the relay.
There is a problem within this circuit causing the fan to fail to operate allowing the engine to overheat while sitting still or driving at a slow speed. When the PCM attempts to activate the fan and senses the command and the result do not match, the code is set. Symptoms may include:
- Check engine light (malfunction indicator lamp) illumination and code P0480 set
- Engine temperature will rise when the vehicle stops and idles
The causes for this DTC may include:
- Faulty fan control relay 1
- Fan control relay harness is open or shorted
- Circuit electrical connections poor
- Faulty cooling fan 1
- Faulty coolant temperature sensor
- Fan cooling fan harness is open or shorted
- Cooling fan circuit poor electrical connection. hope this helps you.

Free downloadable manuals?
Only the owners manual-- is free on the internet
Auto Zone web site & some other places have
----IF ----your asking about actual repair/service manuals,wiring
diagrams & something of some value, you can actually use
Then ONLY the original Factory Manuals or CD's-- is what you want
Anything free or those Haynes manuals- will not be close to
what your vehicle has,their cheap & too generic
