#6 - Engine problem of the 2004 Dodge Intrepid
The vehicle is a 2004 Dodge Intrepid. My wife's car would not start for her went she was going to go to work. For about the last eight to ten months the oil light was coming on and she took it to a auto shop an they said that it was a oil sensor. They replaced it and I also changed the oil. After it would not start on 2/05/07 she had it towed to the shop where they said it was the battery and the starter, but that didn't work. The guy that was working on it noticed that the engine was a 2. 7 v6 motor. He told us that the car had locked up and would never start again due to oil starvation. He also said that he had seen this one other time. The year of her car is a 2004 Dodge Intrepid. He also stated that cars that have that 2. 7 size motor made by daimler Chrysler have this oil starvation problem which cause my wife's car to lock up. If this is true it could be a danger to others with this size motor if they are driving and the car may lock up. We are still looking into what will be done to resolve this issue but would like to let people know that if they have the 2. 7 v6 size motor in their car and the oil light keeps coming on especially during braking to get it checked ASAP. Thank you. This problem occurred on 02/05/2007.

#12 - Engine problem of the 2003 Dodge Intrepid
VIN of the vehicle was 2B3HD46R33_. The 2. 7 liter engine on our 2003 Dodge Intrepid seized without warning while on the road. We were on a two-lane highway on a bridge with no shoulders, in-between two large motorhomes traveling at 60 mph with no power steering and limited braking ability. We were extremely fortunate that we were able to coast across the bridge and get to the shoulder of the road without further incident. The car only has 62,000 miles on it, and the engine seized because of excessive sludge build-up despite regular oil changes that occurred at less then the factory recommended interval of 7500 miles. It was Mon., Oct. 3, 2005 when this engine issue happened.
#13 - Engine problem of the 2003 Dodge Intrepid
The vehicle was a 2003 Dodge Intrepid. The VIN of this vehicle is 2B3HD46R53_. The oil light in my wife's car would come on at an idle. The car had only 70,000 miles on it. The oil was changed every 3000 miles. Found very low oil pressure ( under 5 psi ). Removed rod and main bearings. The bearings looked like new. Used plastic gauge to measure bearing clearance. Found the clearance to be . 003". The spec is . 0015" to . 002". I found that Dodge makes a . 001" undersize bearing for this problem. This leads me to believe that the crank shafts were undersize from the factory. With only . 001" of "wear" the engine could not maintain oil pressure. When I ordered the undersize bearings I got another surprise. In all the engines I have rebuilt the bearing kits run about $50. Dodge is charging $40 each for the main bearings and $64 each for the rod bearings. The total bill for rod and main bearings came to $500. Could there be a little price gouging going on to finance the legal battle with these engines. This engine problem happened on 05/10/2006.

I immediately took it in for repair the result was a cleaning of my oil pickup tube and screen and another oil change. I used high mileage oil and lucas oil additive I also used plus grade gas and still this happened. From what I now know the 2. 7l v6 dohc is "trash" as quite a few mechanics have called it.

I spoke with another individual with the same engine and it locked up at 15,000 miles. Luckily I was not in the main road, but I was in the process of pulling out into a busy intersection and may have not turned out good. The car was in motion and when coming to a stop the engine just locks up and it wouldn't even turn over again. I had to have local law enforcement help me get the vehicle off of the roadway, which happen to be passing by at the time. The vehicle is currently sitting dead in the driveway.
