I have done a 2.7 to a 3.2 engine swap. For a week or so it ran great then
it went in to the safe mode. where the check engine light flashes and
slows you down to a stop. I then unhooked the battery for about 15 min.
Hooked it back up and ran good for about a week then it did it again.
Someone told me the ecm was over loading and would have to install the 3.2
ecm. I bought the one the 3.2 engine was with. Put it on and nothing. So
I bought the bcm (body control module) put it on and nothing. Any help?

msc, sounds like your 2.7 ecm or your icm-- (instrument panel cluster)- are
malfunctioning. We have had no problems like this thus far in the
conversions that we've done. This sounds like a problem that the dodge
dealer may have to take care of. If you take it there, make sure they
treat it as if it still has a 2.7l in it.

Have a question or two.

FYI - just got home from picking my '99 Dodge Intrepid up from the dealer
and guess what they said???? Needs a new engine: oxygen sensors soaked in
oil, damaged catalytic converter, piston seals, need I go on? I absolutely
love my car but now am faced with the dilemma of scrapping it or trying to
find an engine to go in it. Since I purchased the car the transmission
has been rebuilt, several sensors replaced, many smaller defects (power
window), and now this. And for all the negative folks listening, yeah,
the up-keep was flawless, papers to prove it. It is truly a shame that a
car with that much potential had to have such a horrible engine! Maybe
I'll keep it, or maybe I'll start car shopping. Any suggestions on a car
that won't break down before it's paid for? ~A~
