Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

3 Answers

My 1997 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter stops running for no apparent reason. I was driving on the freeway and I lost all power, and the engine cut out. Sometimes it wont start although the starter is good and there is a new battery. I've had several mechanics look for the problem and the code readers show no problem. At times it smells like plastic is burning but no one can seem to find the source. Please help it only has 75,000 miles on it.

You said the starter is good and the battery is new what about the alternator. Did the mechanics do a charging system check? The only reason I ask these questions is that's one of the things that I check. I have had a similar problem with my personal vehicle with the total loss of power and it was the ignition in the steering column. Another vehicle I worked on the problem with the engine cutting off it was the camshaft position sensor. I know gave more than one answer but this is what problems I found that could cause your problem..

I've had several mechanics look for the problem and the code readers show no problem. What kind of mechanics ????? And you don't want a code reader ,you want someone with pofessional grade scan tool that can view scan data . Have you had any problems starting the vehicle ? No crank , clicking starter solenoid etc.... if not it's not battery cables or connections .

Try cleaning and tightening battery cables at both ends, A dirty or loose connection can cause this. Mike

if it is the 3.5 liter v6 then the thermostat will be at the top of the engine where the radiator hose hooks up to the engine there will be a short pipe where radiator hooks up and two or three bolts holding it to the engine it is not under the plastic intake plenum it is forward of that .

I could very well be the TPS throttle position sensor acting up. I had a very similar situation on a 99 Concorde with the same engine in it in my shop today. Go to a shop that is able to do a data stream on the engine. What it is, is they hook up a scanner and have the ability to watch all the sensors as the car starts/runs.

Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

Possible cause would be the fuel pump or a faulty fuel filter on car. Also check for a loose connection on the battery (ground connection). Or a loose wire to the fuel pump. Try this and if nothing found to cause the problem send a message again and explain a little more in detail. Hope this will help.

Hi I have a similar problem with my dodge ram 1500 1995 it was cutting off every 2-3 hrs in hard driving then it was getting worse and yes it sound like it was getting a lot of air in the intake finally I found a bad fuel pump inside engine compartment is a valve in the gas line where you can check the gas pressure and see if you have the same problem every time I was driving on the freeway I have to be easy on the gas or it will start complaining making this air sound and feel like dead then if I release the gas it will run again but I have to know how much gas and how fast can I go and for how long specially in the freeway so try and see if you have the same problem with the fuel pump
