Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

1 Answer

Won't run at three quarters of a tank

My Cirrus had fuel problems. It died out, but would run for a while after cooling down. Had the fuel filter replaced and the fuel pressure checked. Two days later it died at three quarters of a tank. After it sat for 15 minutes I made it a half mile to a gas station and filled it up. It ran fine, the check engine stayed on for a few days. Can't figure this one out.

    I have the same problem on my cirrus, if the tank is full it runs fine but if it get below half a tank i cant get it started sometimes or it starts to **** when driving, I replaced the fuel pump, filter and then of course the second guy says it was installed incorrectly, and he did it again and of course same problem. Luckily i saved money using a cheap local guy so didnt waste money at dealer but i think i am going to have to to get this problem fixed, or live with going to gas station every 3 days. I also carry a 5 gallon tank now. My check engine light never came on.

Where is fuel filter on 1999 Chrysler cirrus


the filter is located on top of the fuel tank. you will have to lower the tank to replace it. if your changing it due to a running symptom then you should check the fuel pressure and volume with a gage. as this can cause a running problem.

I have a 86 Toyota 4Runner, it will not stay running. It will start right away and run for about 5 seconds and then die and won't start unless I leave it alone for an hour or so. It cranks and wil


Good explanation of symptoms.Thank you.




No assumptions.
Diagnose problem.
Pinch off the fuel return line.
Check fuel pressure--I don't wanna!PITA!
The fuel pump won't run if the fuel filter is plugged up.
Toyota's have a gas tank drain plug!!!!!!!!!
My '84 takes a 3/8 " ratchet. Cool.

There may be a fuel pump relay that is toast,but I suspect the filter,off hand.
A plugged filter will overwork the pump and cause the engine to run rich.

Engine dies when running. Intermittently dies while running no sputtering or other warning, all of a sudden the engine is off. Mostly happens at lower rpm's. Starts right back up after putting it in park.


first thing to replace and cheapest would be the fuel filter ,if that doesn't fix the problem , it may be the fuel pump . GM fuel pumps are in the gas tank, and they have a built in thermo fuse . when fuel pumps get old 60000 miles or so..the motor in fuel pump starts running to hot and the thermo fuse kills the power till it cools down then it will run till it gets hot again note the cool down time keeps getting longer and longer

Check for a clogged fuel filter. A clog could cause a pump to fail.

Bucking then dying


Check fuel pressure at fuel rail. If you have not changed the fuel filter in a long time do it (likely needs service anyhow) Before changing pump, check the in-tank pump filter. Trans light and bucking may be unrelated. Either trans is reacting to an engine problem or converter lock up has a problem. Jumping to conclusions may be unproductive. concentrate on shutting down, then go from there.
I can't believe the number of dealers (who are supposed to have all the info) and still can't fix a damn thing! And we wonder why the big 3 are in financial trouble?????
