I am a college student and I need help. I have just bought a 1999 Dodge Intrepid with 119K miles on it... yes its alot, but it is a fantastic looking car... engine is clean, interior is clean and only 1 ding on the body... BUT, for some reason it won't start. I have heard that these engines are HORRIBLE- the 2.7L and it is too late. I don't know what it could be. There is not a mechanic around for over 50 miles... and I was wondering if someone had any suggestions on what it could be? I have been ebaying and seen a lot of Dodge Intrepids with this engine needing a complete replacement!!!! I can't afford that- I don't think... I bought the car as it is and I was told that it might just be the battery... wrong! I mean, its worth a lot more than $2000.00 and I didn't want to pass it up. Any suggestions??? Where could I get a CHEAP motor if worse comes to worse. I have seen Ford Engine for $500 refirnished (3.0) and I don't mind getting a used one... but im not going to spend another $2K on an engine... but if I do have too, would it be better to put in the 3.2L HO??? I love the power that it has, my friend had one about a year ago... PLEASE, ANY HELP!!!!
