Hey guys,

Thanks, I been reading up the Intrepids, and I'm kinda nervous, I have an SE with a 2.7L, I have heard about the oil problem in it, how frequent is this problem?!

Very Frequent..

What you need to do is switch to Mobil 1 syntetic oil asap..and change it every 3,000 miles on the dime..and youll be fine..if you dont want to pay a lil extra money to get the synthetic..youre doomed..

so switch to Mobil 1 synthetic and change your oil every 3,000 miles..and youll be fine

Sounds like the plan. As soon as I bought the car, I went and got an oil change, however I dont know what oil he put in it. I'm at 99k, so does it matter which Mobil 1 Synthetic, one for high mileage maybe?

Also, while getting the car checked out, the mechanic told me breaks squeaking are typical of Chyslers, my pads were good but I needed to change the rotors (which sucks). Is that common as well?

I want to mod it slightly, nothing major, I'm a conservative kinda guy, maybe some wheels, sounds, some small performance add ons and I'm done. The 2.7L needs all the help it can get.

How much is one of those engines, I am not working with much loot here. I got the Trep on a whim at an auction, my winning bid was $3100, has 99k, solid and clean body, in a couple minor fender benders, there is only a small dent on the side, (in the picture you can't even see it). I just wanna keep the bad boy alive and kicking.
