Asked by Jul 05, 2015 at 09:39 AM about the 2004 Dodge Intrepid SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this car when it had millage 112K
on it, its been only 6months and i put 120K
miles on it. I came to know that these 2.7L
engines have water pump and timing chain
problems, which could lead to engine
breakdown by forming oil sludge.
I never had any problems on this, i regularly
check under hood and i dint find any kind of
problem or coolent leakage or sludge
formation till now.
But according to Chrysler they recommend
to change the water pump every 70k-90k
miles.
Is it a wise decision to replace the water
pump or should i get rid of it ASAP ??

The Dodge Intrepid (regardless of year) has ALWAYS been an ENORMOUS pile of crap. Electrical and mechanical problems from Hell. Cut your losses and get rid of it A.S.A.P.! Do yourself a HUGE favor and DO NOT buy anything else from Dodge or CRY-sler!
