Ok, First post here, but I do have a question that someone may be able to help me with regarding the power steering pump...
Just bought my step-son a 2000 Intrepid. Bare bones kinda car with the 2.7L V-6.
The power steering pump was bad so I was changing it out (all of $56 at Auto-zone after core return
) but noticed that the pressure tube is leaking badly (the tube from the pump itself to the hose leading up to the rack).
So I goes to my local stealership and order a new one. It comes in and it isn't the right piece in that the one I have has two NPT threads on either end and the one the stealership has is NPT on the pump end and quick-connect on the other.
Now here's my question...could it be possible that some Mitsubishi parts made it into the 2.7L builds? I know that some of the Gen-I Intrepids were of the Mitsubishi persuasion in that the engines were not Chryslers doing...therefore it might help me to get the stealership to cross reference Mitsu parts to see if I can get the replacement I need? I am trying to find this part as the stealership's microfiche doesn't show the part I have as being the one for the vehicle...just the quick-connect.
I know my Y2K Intrepid is Gen-II, but sometimes left over parts from the previous generations make it into early builds of the next...not sure where the Gen change occured...
