I temperately installed a mechanical oil pressure gauge to determine what I had for oil pressure. With the engine warmed up, idling in drive, I had 18-20 psi. This is good but the light would still flicker even with a new sending unit.
Disconnect the electrical plug at the oil pressure sending unit. Notice the unused spaces for extra wires that are plugged with rubber dummy plugs. Remove one of the dummy plugs in that connector and reconnect the plug and your problem is solved. I seen a TBS (Technical Service Bulletin) addressing that problem. It seems the oil pressure from the engine not only has to over come the spring inside the sending unit which is normal but it also has to compress the air trapped inside the weather tight connection which is not normal.
It might be a dodge intrepid. The 1967 Dodge Charger had one long tail/brake light .
You might have a fuel injector leak that causes the AC in your Dodge Intrepid to smell like gasoline. When the AC pulls air from the outside, it might be pulling some gas vapors in as well.
A loose wire on a 98 Dodge Intrepid car horn will make it stop working. Another reason it may stop working is a blown fuse.
If the 1996 Dodge Intrepid will not start, there might be an issue with the battery or the starter. This could also be a problem with the solenoid or the fuel gauge or fuel pump. The problem and the fix will vary depending on whether the car is completely dead or is cranking when the ignition is turned.
check your alternator it might be bad.
It will depend on the bolt pattern on the rims. If they are multi pattern they might fit.
you may have a transmission problem. See the axles will break to save the transmission from damage. Or you might need to change the bushings on the suspension.
Check the electrical connections on the wires. Also, make sure that the new alternator is working. It is possible to get a new one that has problems. You might have to remove it and have it checked out. i have the same problem on my intrepid i changed the alt, batt, and still light on i check both alts and the first and second are good.
yes there is. You might be able to find one online through the dodge website or you could so to your nearest dodge dealership and get it done. But the best bet is to buy a book on the car and look into it
Oil always worked for me!!! ....You might have blown your headgasket! This means that your engine coolant is leaking into the oil in the engine and it causes smoke out your exhaust.
on a 1998 intrepid it is located on the driver's side near the wheel, it is stuck between the engine block and the catalytic converter. It is a pain to replace. you might try looking there. also, your hot cable from the battery always hooks up to the starter so you might also try following it.
Yes you need to at least replace the one that is broken and check out the other one and see that it might need to be replaced!
the lights on the dash are as such, the left light is for the low oil pressure, the right light is low generator/alternator. The red light on the dash is for the cylinder head temp. if it exceeds a temp limit, it will light. when driving, or coming off the freeway, the oil pressure light might flicker, due to the change in pressure quickly. The generator light may flicker when 1st started or if the vehicle is ideling lower than required.
Sounds like it might be a short in the wiring or a swich. Check all wiring and swiches. Hope this helps.
Might be a weak battery
Although a car starter is a great concept, I definitely would not install it in a 1999 Intrepid. I have a 99 Intrepid, and have heard that that year was the worst for the Intrepid. I have had nothing but problems with my car, and have spoken to others with the same model and year as mine. A car starter can totally screw up the mechanics of a car, especially one with such a bad rep. Another thing is that if you need a starter, I would probably get a professional to do it. They might offer you some kind of a warranty.
Get one from an auto repair store. (autozone, o'riely's, napa,ect.) Haynes, Chilton or otherwise. They sell them there. You might need to order one, call ahead to see.
They look like points of light. On first sight, a planet might be confused with a star (a very bright star, in the case of Venus, Jupiter, and sometimes Mars). Planets shine brightly and do not flicker while stars do not shine as bright (usually) and they always flicker, or sparkle.
Yes you can but why would you swap that motor in? If you are already doing the work might as well throw the better more reliable 3.2/3.5 in and save yourself a headache in long run. The 2.7 mitsu motor is not a very good motor, especially compared to its bigger stronger brothers.
There are pages and pages of things that can turn the check engine light on. You need to have it checked for codes to know what the cause might be.
you might need a new screen or change the power options
It is located on the top of the engine, front, center - - looks like a grease fitting in a black plastic housing where the thermostat might normally sit. The upper radiator hose connects to it.
something is wrong have it checked at the dealer might not deploy if you have collision
If the check engine light is on you need to borrow, rent or buy a code scanner from your local auto parts retailer, and use it to find out what's wrong. Do that first, then worry about the other stuff since it might just solve your problem.
hood light might be the same fuse as radio
