I bought a 99 dodge intrepid 2.2 with 176k miles on it. It ran great for about 2 wks. Except for the o2 sensor codes. Then a rod went in the motor, so I bought a good used engine out of an 01. The first problem I had was the batt. Light came on. I tested the battery, it tested at 12.69 volts so I replaced the alternator. It ended up being the (SSR) fuse in the main fuse block. Now codes are popping up alot. The first one to trip was P0340. I changed the cam sensor, now I have P0174, P0121, P0123, and P0405. I also changed the TPS with the one from the old motor. The car wouldn't start one morning so I replaced the cam sensor and got it running long enough to get it home. Then it wouldn't start again. I then replaced the TPS. Now it starts and drives, but the transmission shifts hard, and at high RPMs. It also stumbles at take off, and sometimes stalls at stops. I am very mechanically inclined, but this sensor, and computer stuff still confuses me. Please help me as I am ready to drive this thing into the gravel pit and be done with it. I dont know if each one of these codes is a separate issue, or if there is an underlying issue.
have the same problem?
