My 16 year old daughter has had her 1999 chrysler cirrus for 3 months. We thought it was a great car, and last week it decided not to start. It turns over and sounds like it wants to start, but doesnt'. We changed the fuel pump and fuel filter, but still the same. You can hear the fuel pump working, so what could be the problem. The fuel lines to the engine are empty.

make sure you have a good solid ground for fuel pump @ tank ! I can\'t express this enough. Is power getting to pump ! can you hear it run when you have an assistant turn key to on position ? it will hum for 2-3 seconds. computers rarely go bad ! just heard about a new fuel pump was wired wrong @ the manufactors who built it. that would suck. good luck
This could be leaking fuel injectors, a stuck Fuel Pump relay, and/or faulty fuel pressure regulator. Have you had any of these items checked and/or replaced? If not, it may be time to replace them. Also, check your fuel filter. If it hasn't been replaced in the last year, replace it.
Had the same problem on my 1999 cirrus lxi. Replaced the output speed sensor on the tranny and topped off the tranny fluid... cleared the check engine light and the cirrus ran great. Caution...the output speed sensor reqires removal of the front left tie and plastic weatherproofing to replace. once you find it's locvation, the replacement is relatively easy.
The throttle position sensor may be misaligned. This tells the computer how much throttle is being applied, and when they go bad, or come out of alignment, the idle tends to get up there. If that's not the issue, remove your air cleaner, the housing and everything until you get to the MAP sensor. Give it a good spray with carb cleaner, let it dry and replace the air cleaner with a new one. If the MAP sensor detects minimal air flow, the computer jacks up the idle to compensate.
