Question about 2000 Chrysler Cirrus

1 Answer

Engine is stalling

I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXi and after it gets started and pulled out of the drive way it starts stalling, trying to grab for air/gas and is then un-driveable (as in i cant get out on the road without these symptoms coming back) im not sure what to do, we've hooked up a code reader to the cars computer and it doesnt help us much with this problem. we also have cleaned a bunch of the sensors. We have also just bought it used and it is now sitting in the driveway, just lookin pretty.

    It was sent to the shop and it's head gasket was replaced. Other things were tuned as well.

    Sounds like it's starving for fuel. Either a bad fuel pump or the in tank filter is plugged. To prove this, get a fuel pressure gauge on the high side and see if the pressure drops off as you try to drive away. If it does, time to drop the tank.

I had a car do the same thing. It turned out it was the PCM. Also if that does'nt work try replacing the Crank sensor.

Show me a picture of the water pump on a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXI

The pump is part of the timing components. You only want to do this one time. So replace all the timing components. You don't have to replace the crank or cam gears.

How do I fix a leak in the freeze plugs in a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXI 2.5 engine?

What you have to do is purchase a new freeze/frost plug. Usually from a Napa, Champion store ect. Usually just have to tap the old frost plug on one side and it will usually rotate so that you can grab it with a pliers or vise grips to remove it. Then clean the surface and punch the new plug into place. It will be a friction fit.

I recommend using a wood dowl the size of the plug to punch into place as it will ensure the plug is pressed into place without damage.

Good luck

sounds like the cooling fan(s) are not working. possible a disconnected plug near radiator . my guess is the mech forgot to plug it back in. check around the radiator for any plugs that are just hanging loose . also check the fuses . there may be one for cooling fan and see if it is burned out.

99 chrysler cirrus lxi won't shift out of 2nd, no speedometer

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.
