I have 2000 Intrepid, it crnaks over, I pulled 2 plugs to check for spark and there is nothing, each plug has it's own coil. Also the gap seems a bit large, more then.050 any thoughts?
Do you

Hello -

I can give you a couple of things, but if you need to get back with us please let me know if your vehicle is an Intrepid or Intrepid R/T. Also, is your engine a 2.7L, 32.L or a 3.5L and I will need to know the 8th digit of your VIN.

Next, you pulled two and no spark at those. Can you check the others since each has it's own coil therefore should have a spark to the rest if one is bad, or the others if 2 are bad.

Next, the Automatic Shut Down relay, (ASD) controls the spark to those coils, it gets a signal from the crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor then all that of course goes to the PCM to shake around and come up with info for the car to run.

I have attached the location of the ASD, it may be bad, if all are not getting a spark, I would replace the ASD.

Anymore info than this and I would prefer to have the correct model and engine.

If you can get the thing running - or sometimes they will let you check it out on a loan a tool program, go to Auto Zone or O'Reilly's and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. If you can not get it going and they will let you check it out, then check it out and you check for codes. Most important: Once they or you check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. If you do go there, while there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery, alternator and starter. If you can't get it going I would do this once it is running anyway.

Let me know what you find out and we will take it from there.

Also, if you need to get back with me let me know what the 8th digit of your VIN is.
