Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 72,000 miles
2000 dodge intrepid,2.7 liter engine, replaced crank shaft, rod bearings, all timing chain guides, tensioners, valve cover gaskets, timing guide cover gaskets, things we did not replace were: timing chain, oil pump, the engine has been taken apart and put back together 3 times. the last 2 times i started and let the car idle for 2 hours with no problem at all, i then turned the car off came back 1 hour later and did a test drive with in 10 minutes of actually being on the road the engine started smoking, the oil light came on and then 5 minutes later the engine started tapping up top. we have now went through this drill 2 times. the mechanic and i are stuck and do not know what to do. we have been advised to relace the oil pump, and something about boring out holes on the head where the oil drains back down. can you help?

My '01 had the same problem, it was the timing chain. Mine ended up jumping a few teeth, and destroying my engine. Hope this helps.

I need to swap my 2.7 out for a 3.2. I would like to know what kind of mileage these 3.2s are lasting for. Three of the five 3.2 engines in Washington state have 135k on them. Are these 200 or 250k engines, or am I going to end up replacing the engine again in a few thousand miles. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

As you no doubt know and anyone here will tell you: it's about maintenance. And the key factor is frequency of oil/filter changes. Since you are going used engine route, it's a crap shoot.
My '99 3.2 has 151,000 miles, uses no oil. It has had every 3000 mile oil and filter changes.

I have a 98 Dodge Intrepid and when it gets warm it dose not like to start,, Not all the time,, thats why No one can figure it out,,, but when it dose start, it will shake like it is misfiring , But no codes,, and it will take a bit for it to run smoothly, but once it dose start to run right it works Great,,, We thought that it was the EGR valve so we disconnected it, and it still dose it,,, the fuel put PSI is right around 43 or so even when its acting up ,,
I brought it to do different place's and no one know what wrong,, I even put in a different fuel pump,,,
Can any one HELP ME ??
