#20 of 23 I don't know what to do
Feb 09, 2009 (8:36 am)
Have a Dodge Intrepid 2000, 2.7 also, after hearing all these comments I feel very depressed, that car was good until a water leak close to the thermostat started giving me troubles, changed gasket and thermostat but the car is still leaking, there is a deep hole very close to the part that looks like an escape hole I don't know, what should I do?, should I cover the little hole with a screw (bolt) and some silicon or what?, please give me some advice, really need your help friends outhere, thanks a lot.

Your water pump is going out!!!!! don't plug the hole it is a drain hole. The water pump on this engine is located in the oil bath and is driven by the timing chain. when the pump fails it can dump the antifreeze in the oil and cause a major failure. you can save it by get the pump replaced as soon as possible. the bill should run about 700.00 or 800.00. it is a very difficult job but can be done if you are handy and know your way around an engine. I found some pretty good instructions online and saved my self about 600.00 and did the job myself. good luck to I hope you have been able to save it in time. other than that its a great car.

These are not disposable cars. The '99 ES has now reached 140K miles and still runs great, blows cold A/C.
Of course, it's not worth much to sell or trade in, but that wasn't the plan when I ordered it to be built.
I buy them to keep them.
