Engine Cooling problem
2002 Dodge Intrepid Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 2002 dodge intrepid with the 2.7 in it and I was just curious if anyone could tell me what other years of the dodge intrepids will match over to the 2002 model?
Do you

Well I currently need to go the cheap route which is why im going to a junkyard but im replacing the whole shroud and motors and blades and the years that are interchangable would help alot so im not looking for just 2002's or searching for everything else not knowing what matches. I've also been told the only way to replace the fans on those cars is to get a whole new shroud and the whole assembly (shroud motors blades the whole works) or i'd consider just replacing the motors

I believe you can get just the motors. Are you sure they are bad? Have you tried running a jumper wire direct from the battery to power them motors?

I just checked a parts store and the motors are available seperate from the shroud.

Let me know if this helps.

Yes this did help and I did run a jumper and it didnt cause them to run and the driver side fan you can hardly even spin by hand but I think im still just gonna take the cheap route and go to a junk yard lol it may not last as long but its what I can afford right now thanks a bunch for everything and if anyone still can tell me a cross reference for years on the fan it would be greatly appreciated!

Let us know if you have questions in the future. And believe me. I understand going to the salvage yard because of cost. I've been there and done that. In fact, our primary family vehicle has been sitting for 2 months because I am saving the money for 4 ball joints, and the heater core in my truck has been leaking for 6 months. I UNDERSTAND.

Let us know if you have questions in the future.

And now im back to the drawing board lol I found a fan at the junk yard. They tested it and claimed it worked. Well it ended up blowing my fuses when I hooked it up and installed it but it did work temporarily. So I went ahead and put the original one back in the car and replaced the fuses and the passenger side fan still spins? Which it didnt use to work before! And it stopped blowing my fuses after I disconnected the drivers side fan motor in the original one? So does that mean that my one motor is still good and I could get by with only one new motor versus the whole shroud and assembly? And is it possible to temporarily get by with one fan? Now that one is actually working as its supposed to?

IT sounds like you can get by with one rather than both. As far as getting by with one, you may be able to do that, but you really should have both. Just keep an eye on the temp gauge.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Well I took it out and did some intown driving close to home and it ran just a bit warmer than normal with only one fan but not a big difference. And im getting a new fan motor in the morning for the other side (and I know it works lol) but I was just curious about the difference of using water versus coolant in the summer time is that going to cause any damage or not. I know to change it out with anti-freeze b4 winter hits but someone told me I could get by with just basic water for the summer time? What are the pro's and con's for this cheap method of cooling during the summer or is it classified as a big NO NO? And once again thanks for everything
