Another (former) Intrepid Owner told me about this site last week...I'm also over at the other Intrepid site.
I have a 1995 Dodge Intrepid ES - 3.3 - 155,000 Miles. Recently I was having some issues with long crank times with poor initial idling. I changed out various items (Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Crankshaft Position Sensor, Throttle Positioning Sensor, Camshaft Position Sensor, and Fuel Pressure Regulator) until that problem went away. I believe the Camshaft Position Sensor was the solution to the long crank times with poor initial idling problem - as it now starts up each time within 1-2 seconds.
While I was having the previous problem, another problem/issue crept up on me within the past few weeks and comes and goes at will.
As I approach a stop sign or light, my engine RPM's well momentarily drop to stalling and surge back on - of course this causes a slight bucking and the car will lurch or surge a little forward. As I anticipate something like this occurring, I will put it in Neutral and the idle will go back to 800 and be perfectly fine. As soon as the light turns green, I shift it back to drive and it starts to surge again as I apply gas and it seems to go aways as I get up to speed - until the next stop light or coasting without applying gas.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could cause this type of surging/stalling while in Drive or Reverse, but not in Park or Neutral?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
