GRRR! Just over a week since i spent 4 days replacing the broken timing belt in my Intrepid and checking all the valves....More **** hit the fan. I concluded that the timng belt tensioner bearings puked, eventually spitting the balls out eating up at the belt. At the same time, the water pump bearing was on its last leg and puking. So when the belt started getting hot and greasy the belt was not able to turn the pump overheating the car/and the belt. Then the belt slipped and screwed the timing leading the car to shut off. IM like inspector gadget.

****, you seem like a fairly experienced mechanic- It's cool to see somebody works on their own cars around here.

Cars ****, maybe... But they are a ****load better than motorcycles and I doubt many people here would give up their wheels for a horse, a bike or a fast, strong girlfriend.

I dont hate cars... you just drive a dodge.

the intrepid is KNOWN for having many, many things go wrong with it at one time... then 2 weeks later again.

Get a nice import or something

yeah. Definitely the trannys are POS. But if you got the 3.5L you should get lucky. The 2.7 and the 3.2 are garbage in my opinion.
