1993 Dodge Intrepid Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1993 Dodge Intrepid based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The automatic transmission can develop problems like harsh shifting, shuddering between shifts, and a buzzing while in Reverse. Repairs for many of these problems are outlined in service bulletins and require removal and disassembly of the transmission.
Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.
The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.
Debris and corrosion in the AC housing may cause the AC evaporator core to develop a refrigerant leak.
The fuel level sensors can wear out and cause erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings.
On higher-mileage vehicles, engine oil leaks from the valve covers and front crankshaft seal are common.
A defective fuel pump check valve (which maintains fuel pressure in the system when the vehicle is not running) may lead to long cranking times or hard starting (sometimes with stalling). The fuel pump should be replaced.
A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
When the car is accelerating, spark plug cables may cause intermittent misfires and popping sounds from the engine compartment.
