If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped
it, then I would suspect that the 'lock-up' function on the torque
converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it
is the same as popping the clutch on a conventional transmission car,
which cause the same stall. If you can't drive the car, I would call
around to several independent transmission shops to find one that is
familiar with the Chrysler 41TE transmission and that appears to be
honest. Ask if they have a diagnostic readout box to communicate with
the transmission control computer. If they do then have the car towed
there and let them try a readout. If they get a code 38 or 0740
(depending upon what year model you have there) then that would show
that the lock-up is the problem. If you are lucky the problem will be
with a solenoid switch or valve in the box on the side of the
transmission which can be corrected easily without removing the
transmission. Because this possibility (along with about 6 other
causes) is worth pursuing, I would want a shop that is not going to
talk you into a "rebuild" without first looking into all the possible
reasons for the lock-up condition so you aren't "taken for a ride".
So ask friends if they know a good honest shop and check them out as to how well they understand the Chrysler transmission. You may end up at a Chrysler dealer, but insist on their trying all the other possible causes before authorizing removal of the transmission which is a very expensive repair and may not be necessary.

It may be the valves carboning up because of the octane rating of your petrol. I had a 2003 Toyota Caldina with the D4 motor that was so annoying because it kept missing at highway speed and shuddering at idle. I had it carboned cleaned twice through the valves but after that no difference changed plugs no difference talked to toyota new zealand and they said our octane rating 91-98 RON was to low it should only run on 103 Ron like in japan but we dont have it here so I sold it quick! Maybe your problem I dont know it might help.

this is an engine check light...........and it is indicating a problem with the electronic management sytem....my suggestion is to take the vehicle to an autozone store and get them to read the trouble codes that have been logged by the ecu, to find out which direction to follow in....we can guess all day, could it be fuel pump, egr valve, oxygen sensor, but until defineitive proof is there, it is very hard to diagonse....get back to us once you have found out the codes

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Since this is a newly bought car, I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid and motor oil. Motor oil is for security purposes, to remove sludge just in case.
Regarding the transmission fluid, the fluid may be burnt that's why it makes some noise. This is common when fluid is burnt or old. Once the fluid is replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
