I would like to know where I can get documentation on the faulty design. I have a 1995 that has a bad A/C evaporater coil, problems with the dash cluster blackout at the same time, the transmission won't shift and the key keeps sticking in the ignition.

I would also like to know where to find documentation about the faulty a/c as my compressor seized at 39000 miles (naturally just beyond the warranty). Also would like to know if anybody knows what to do about the leaky spark plug tubes. A mechanic said that removing them and coating the bottom part with 212 loctite cures the leak... any comments?

I own 94 Intrepid. Bought it used in 99. Have had nothing but trouble. I have intermittent problems (for two years) that when you start it, the gages don't work. No rpms, no fuel gage, no speedometer, etc. The transmission shifts from the rpm gage so with out the gages you cannot drive out of first gear. Then suddenly lights come on and every thin starts to work. Then it will suddenly shift. The worse part of it all you can be driving 45 or 70 and suddenly the gages stop working. It is like slamming on the brakes.

Different Dodge repair centers have told us it is a connection on one of three control modules. ($400-800 each exchange) and that they have to try different modules to find the problem. Sister in law with same problem has spent

$750 and she still has problem. What can we do. Sometimes it will run for 3-4 weeks and then bam won't run without the problem for a few weeks. HELP.

To fix the problem with the gauges turning off have dealer replace the igntion switch, I fixed it my self, and seem to resolve the problem.

Check your ground wiring.

Well, I have a '94 Intrepid that blew an engine. I tried for months to find a 3.5L 24-valve V-6, and believe me, they're not cheap! About $1400 for a used engine with no warranty. I finally found one, a '97 engine through a private sale, and it was not an easy swap. It seems Chrysler decided to make several changes to the wiring harness and after much patience, the car is now running fine.

I also picked up a '96 Intrepid for my son. It was a really good deal, but the gages do not work now. I thought perhaps it was the Body Control Module, and finding one of those is impossible.

Based on some "Ask Jeeves" user comments, I'm hoping it's just the ignition switch and I can be done with it.

I Have a 1994 Dodge Intrepid ES. 3.5l. I really liked the car when I bought it three years ago. The transmission started to mess up right away. It had less than 60,000 miles on it. Then the key started to get stuck in the ignition. After that the A/C went out. The transmission just hopped a little at first. Now it won't go into gear sometimes and it won't shift out of first gear at times. If I turn off the car and restart it the transmission will usually start to shift. Anyone know how to fix this please Help!

I have a 94 Chrysler LHS 3.5. The transmission seems to be sticking in 1st or 2nd gear quite often. If I turn the car off and then back on it works just fine for about 15 to 20 minutes and then bam its starts to stick again. Anyone know what the problem might be. 2 mechanics have already checked the the car and cannot find anything wrong. Someone please help.

I think the 1996 3.5l Dodge Intrepids have a lot more major problems than the 3.3l. I have been looking at the reviews and it appears that the 3.5l has more problems.
