my question is i replaced the spark plugs and the coils and my car wont start. why is that and we also have to keep charging the batteries. done bought two new batteries and have to have another vehicle around to jump it off.why is that??

2002 dodge intrepid. 129,000 miles. never any problems until today. overheated for no apparent reason. slight muffled noise in engine. been told many things from harmonic balancer not spinning correctly (it wobbles a bit, but always has since i bought it), to timing belt/chain. can't seem to get a straight answer on which it is, to water pump, which happens to be an internal unit.
i can handle my own mechanical needs but i need to know which parts to buy first. i need to be able to take it apart and put it back together in one shot. its my only vehicle and i can't get back and forth to a shop for parts.
Any help would be great.

car dies when i put it in gear

I pushed on the struts/springs and seem to be OK. Visual also looked OK, at least as far as I could tell. Not a mechanic. Whenever I hit pot holes, it sounds and feels like the front end is going to drop off. Runs great on highway and non-bumping roads.

any time i do over 60mph my car will start shaking a i can feel a thumping and hear it as well from under the driver side. even more when i slow down could this be my cv axle?

we can't get the bolt out of the body mount bushing and our replacement parts didn't come with new hardware, how do we get the bolt out without cutting it off and then replace the body mount? Right now the bolt just spins and the nut on it has a rounded head, how do we get it out?

How do I fix it

my car jerks and i am believing my air filter need to be changed. can someone help me with the location and how to change that?

Is there any easier way to disconnect power when replacing electrical parts in the car without of going through all the trouble of getting into the battery comparttment which is so "easily accessible" in the wheel well of this model Intrepid?

when diagnostics is done i get 22 flash's 2 pauses what that means,(3 flash,pause,5 flashes long pause 4 flash's pause 5 flash's pause then 5 more flashes then done.)

what can be the problem,change fuel pump and filter,alternator good got it check,and fuel relay.all it does is wants to turn over but doesn't and after a few more tries it clicks.
like goes dead.

I have downloaded some instructions for this job and all of them say I should "Disconnect negative battery terminal before removing door panel".

Is there an easier way to disconnect the battery for this job other than going through all the hasle of getting into the battery compartment just to disconnect power to work on the mirror?

Why is all of my reserve water leaking from the bottom of the engine and steming out on top of it

I tried to jump start my wifes 1994 buick regal and neither one of us could find the terminals on our cars to attach the jumper cables to. Where are they?

I have a 98 Intrepid 3.2ES and the blower fan just stopped working. There was no indication of a problem, one day it worked fine, the next day the fan would not turn on. I had the interior fuse replaced and that didn't help. Does anybody know what can be causing this problem and how to fix it?

What should I do to fix this?

Engine has been running smoothly as of yesterday. Tried to start the car today, the engine cranks but will not "pop". I don't smell fuel, battery has full power, starter is working good, but it sounds like it "jumped timing"?? Is this a costly repair? Approximately, what can I expect to lay out, without going to a dealer?

front end rattles when at idle but stops when moving

at 70 mph the car shifted into neutral, ever since it will only pull itself in 2nd gear. Fluid is good and full, check engine light flashes periodically. Ran a scanner on it and came up with two codes 733 and 734. 164000 miles with no hint of any tranny troubles.

I just replaced the radiator, bleed the air out of the cooling system. But now, the heater blows cold air and seems like it takes around 15min. for the engine to heat up. What could this be?

Is there anything special that has to be done to remove the radiator?

I have a 99 dodge intrepid with a thumping noise in the steering. This noise only occurs when you are pulling out of a parking spot and are only moving the car with idle speed. It makes a loud thumping noise when the steering wheel is turned. The power steering pump is also very loud at start up and at idle. When I drive the car at high speeds the steering doesn't make the thumping noise. I'm wondering if this sound is in the rack or something else. Any suggestions would be great on a solution. One other thing, while driving the steering wheel is very slow after making a turn meaning it doesn't turn back to main position without my help. Thanks

Where is the flasher located, i coulnt find it by the steering column or under the hood??

was driving one day and without warning the trans down shifted into limp it home and later when i tried to move it, the tranny does nothing when i put it into drive or i said there was no probs before it went into limp mode and it makes no noises whatever...
