Hi, everyone, I'm new to this forum, although I've been reading as a guest for some time. I'm looking to get my 2000 intrepid 2.7 back on the road. Hoping I can find a lot of answers. Thanks to all in advance.

Thanks,
In a nutshell I replaced the 2.7 with another 2.7. Everything looks the same but it does not start. (no spark). Rechecked timing chain and found cam sprockets on left side are different. The replacement engine has a sticker on it that has a date of 7/2001. Are there any other differences.
Many thanks in advance.

I'm not aware whether or not 00 and 01 have any major wiring differences, although someone with more experience would gladly speak up.

2001 was a crossover year - everything has to be 'just right' with regards to wiring, etc. It has bits of 02 and 00 design, as I understand it.

The safest bet would have been to find a 98-00 2.7 motor.

You may have to transfer parts from your old motor to get things going on this new motor....

That or do what some of the other members have done, and find a decent 3.2/3.5L engine

Thank you all for the replies. I thought that a 2000-2001 swap would be a straight across swap but it obviously isn't. I don't want to keep dumping money into it so hopefully I can figure out what parts need to replaced and get it running. Hopefully someone here has gone through this process before and has that info to help me out. Thanks again.

Shouldn't be that big of a deal if you use your current engine wiring harness. Maybe have to swap out a sensor or two from your "old" engine to the "new".

The other possibility is that your new engine is not 2001 and is a later one...as in a 2002 or later. Then your talking about a cam sprocket/flywheel swap to get it running.

Are you absolutely sure the the donor engine is 2001?

No, not sure of the year. But it does have a yellow sticker on the side of the left valve cover that has some bar codes and the date 07/25/01 in it. The harness and all the sensors all plugged in without any issues. The left side camshaft sprocket looks very similar but the tone ring holes are in different locations. I assume I have to use the one from the old engine. But what else if anything do I have to replace.

Cam sprocket and flywheel will need to be changed. Which means the engine has to come back out for the flywheel change.

If that's an original sticker then it's quite possible it's for the next model year which would be 2002. Remember that they start building cars in the previous year around September or earlier.

Is there a way to identify the correct flywheel like a part number? I don't have the flywheel for the "new" engine nor do I have access to the car it came from. I will have to locate one somehow.

Was the flywheel changed for any reason before installation?

I bought a used engine and it came without the flywheel.
