hi love my car. anyone can offer suggestion. She is a 2003 I refer to the car in the female genre because we girls are high mantainence. Oil light is flickering. I check the oil than I fill though that is done. The engine still knocks and the light of the oil goes on still. Oh yes did i mention it knocks when I am at a light. Need information so I wont be taken for a ride when I go to a mechanic. Not all have one reliable wish i could fine one.
Please advise would really appreciate anyones honesty.

I also have a 2003 dodge intrepid se and i will tell you my car was doing the same thing and after that started my timing chain jumped time and long story short I had to have a new engine put in my car. After that I had to replace the hoses, pulley and belts then I had to replace the radiator and that all happened within 6 months after I bought it. In doing research on this car Dodge should've recalled the engine on this model. there are alot of mad people out there all with the same engine problems. My guess is start saving for a new engine.

This is one of Chrysler's worst engines. I work at a shop and junkyard. I can't tell you how many Intrepids, concordes, stratus's, 300's, magnums and chargers get Junked because of the engine, I agree that chrysler should take responsibility for the bad quality but when you think about it rarely does any of these engines go bad during guarantee period. My advise is to not put any more money into one of these vehicles when it comes to reliability; ford and chevy have chrysler beat by far when it comes to domestics. and it is not just the 2.7 that is bad the 3.7 and 4.7 are also garbage.
It is sad because all of these engines go into really nice designs from JEEP, Chrysler and Dodge.
