1994 Dodge Intrepid Owner Comments

problem #5

Jun 082010


  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles


This is my second Dodge Intrepid. My first was a 1997. Has some major brake problems with the first. Rear wheel would lock up going down the freeway, had to take it to the junk yard, not worth fixing. Both Intrepid check engine light are ALWAYS ON. My current dodge intrepid had a transmission leak so I had the lines replaced, cost $250.00. Now, I start the car, start to drive down the road and at 40 mph it will be at 3rpms. Can't go fast than that. At each stop light I turn off the car and restart. Usually at about the third or fourth restart it will work properly. I can be sitting at a light with my foot on the brake and the car will try to jump forward. I was driving down the road a couple of days ago at 45 mph when the transmission went completely out of drive, like it was in neutral, I tried shifting (this is an automatic) into 3 or Low but there was nothing, I had a bunch of cars behind me so I was just about the pull over when the car slammed into drive out of nowhere but it was the 40 mph at 3000rpms again. I waited until I got to the light, shut off the car and restarted. It worked fine for a few minutes before it started doing the same thing again. I am getting in the shop tomorrow, shop seems to think it's a sensor.

Intrepid 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles

It would not shift any higher than 3rd gear if the engine was cold when you started driving. I tried to let off the gas a little, go faster, everything. It goes up to about 6000 rpm and still won't shift. The only temporary fix I found was to restart my car while I was at a stoplight after driving it for a while.

problem #1

(reported on)


  • 90,000 miles

Some days would start up and would not act up until drove to a stop, then would drive off a would not shift out of first, other times would downshift hard when slowing down and would not get back in high gear, this lasted for 2 months and engine light came on but codes would not detect problem. One Chrysler dealer took out my remote starter and blamed problem on that, Wrong , got off their lot and problem still there. One morning start car and engine light was on, so here we go again but I accidentally hit the key in the ignition and the light came off, so I shut it off and restarted several times putting pressure at different angles on the key and lo and behold at certain angles light would come on, hence I ordered a new ignition switch and problem, solved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
