Is it worth it? I know It is.. Water Pump
I've been a member of the dodgeintrepid.net for about 4 years, forgot my email address and couldn't retrieve my password.
But I love my Intrepid man. This is my third one. Age 17 I had a sliver sxt chrome wipers, chrome rims, chrome lining around my tail lights. I brought alot from ebay lol, had money to spare with my first job. 5 Months Later it got totaled, chick ran a stop sign getting out the way of a stolen speeding car and I took a bad hit ( Wooden electrical line pole )
Second One i had was also a sxt black, didn't add anthing all stock... I lost that one due to ONE missed payment 15 days late. Aww man, money was tight I was 19 living solo.
Finally I saved up and brought another SXT sliver, I put chrome wipers on again. This one has the stocked chrome rims ( looks goooood), sun roof, wing, and fog lights 2002. I'm now 22
It got very cold one day and I must have had a little to much water in my coolant. Because it froze and my heater core was leaking, I know this because it was coolant on my rug driver side thought.
I use to rev my engine manually from the hood, I can feel that fat hose coming from the radiator into the engine block build pressure with liquid, now i don't. I believe its my water pump.
Growing up I worked on cars most my life but never did crazy big jobs solo without my father. I have plenty of tools and access to more.
How can I get intrepid running again. I'm on break from school, I have about 5 weeks and 200 dollars lol. I can get more.
2002 Dodge Intrepid SXT 3.5 liter
Problem: Over Heating
Fix(maybe): Heater Core and Water Pump.
Question: How much work is involved? What tools to have? How many hours ( first time/ Mechanically inclined)?, How much money for parts?
I rushed writing this, sorry. Hope you understand, Thanks for answers in advance
