Please Help 97 Chrysler Cirrus Stalling out

Car has 118,000 miles on it drives great. No knocks or anything in engine. Stalled out mid drive after sputtering for a minute. Sat for a minute and started back up, kept going for a little bit mile or so and died again. Gave up on it, went back next day and drove it for a couple of miles to friends house and there it sits... Any suggestions on what could be causing this?? Greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks!!

Could be alot of things. If it runs good when cold and gets worse when warm, at low RPM, it may be the EGR valve. May just need cleaning. A plugged fuel filter won't cause the light to come on, but it will cause a lean condition, which will. Possibly a bad crank sensor, they have been known to have trouble at the connection, check it to make sure it's clean and tight. it's on the pass side, at the rear, were the motor & trans bolt up. first things to do are to make sure the battery connections are clean and tight. Then replace the filter..Please click on this link its the service manual ,,,

engine stall for a vast number or reasons.

cars ignored all fail, no car runs 300k miles service free,
skip them and get stranded, (i promise)

2: engine overheated or lost compression for any reasons (complex)
3: lost spark
4: lost fuel
5: too much fuel, flooding, and stalling.
6: egr sticks open.
7: ISC sticks closed.
8:if not restart, say so and list expands way more...

Stall after driving a few miles but starts right up anf goes a few more before stalling again.


Need to check the maintenance schedule of your car to see the condition and health of the engine.
But to start with please check the fuel pump , check if the calibration was done or the pressure is optimum. Check the fuel filter, check the ignition, the plugs and the injectors.
It will be good to have these sections looked into , overhauled or replaced if there is an observation of weakness.

Front end knocking from 97 sebring


Move it to 3rd instead of drive and see if you still have the noise. May be transmission related since you have replaced everything else.
