1996 Chrysler Cirrus Hiccups

My 1996 Cirrus will sometimes just shut off. It is like the engine is just turned off. There are some instances that I will be driving it and the car will shut off and then come back on (it hiccups). This happened with my 1993 Dodge Grand Caravan and we were never able to figure out what the problem was. We replaced all the fuel line, filter, and pump and it continued with the same problems. Any ideas?

    I have same issue. Car shows the check engine light which can be reset after the repair is made and it will come back on with a different code each time. The car starts to miss after getting warm and will miss if you try to accelerate to fast. So far have replace cam sensor, temp sensor, distributor, fuel pump, plugs, plug wires, egr valve. Car will just not run right.

    same exact problem i have for my 1996 cirrus

  • Cirrius May 19, 2009

    My engine cuts off when driving for a week. I noticed that when I hit bump in the road it would cut off lately.. one day it would drive normally, the next not. I also noticed that when I drove at a low constant speed it was less likely to cut off as often. Battery is good. Seems lika fuel problem of sorts. One time I hit a bad pothole and it didn't start back up right away. since then it will only maintain its ability to drive for a max of 2 miles. could there be something that is loose?

There is 4 things that you need to run a car that is fuel , combustion ,compression and exhaust!!!
my 96 had a bad carbon build up in the metal tube to the right of the intake manifold..its hooked up to the egr sensor .what i did was took it off and soaked the tube in gas for 1/2 hour the blew it out with compressed air....while your at it you should clean that port on the intake where that metal tube was.....once all carbon chipped away, it is very important that you vacume the inside of the manifold....how you do that take the air intake off and stick your shop vac on that port where the tube was, then open your carb by hand and that should clean it right out!

I have a 1995 chrysler cirrus when im at the light the car starts jerking and sometime it shuts off.


IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU TOLD US THE ENGINE SIZE;STRAIGHT OR AUTO TRANS,AC ETC.
The 3.9 LT V6 engines back then had bad lower distributor/camshaft bushing. IF your car missfires-is hard to start-or tries to run backwards upon shutdown it may be this.
Engine will have to be put on analyzer(to show vaariable timing caused by bushing)=easy to Dx and may be covered by warranty .

1996 CHRYSLER CIRRUS LX A/C COMPRESSOR WONT KICK ON CANT FIND ALL THE FUSES


Look under the hood on the drivers side of the engine compartment next to the air box for your filter. Two black covers there that have fuses and relays.

Also, on the drivers side of the dash on the end (I think). Look there too.

Let me know what you find.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus engine jerking while in reverse, drive and also while sitting in driveway. Seems like while in drive/reverse car wants to shut down. Check Engine light on, was flashing for a minute...


the valve cover gaskets were leaking oil around the spark plug boots making the boot swell and causing a voltage leak. the engine misfired and stop lights. i did a tune up with new cover gaskets,plugs, wires, cap and rotor and she runs like a top. vrooom, vrooom!!
