Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

2 Answers

Car dies When i go in reverse it ususlly dies on me about 1-4 times and even when i go down the around around 45mph it will die on me. Sometimes it takes me like 2 to 5 times to get the thing started again. Also when i am like at a stop sign and i take off it starts chugging and i can't move except for 2 mph and rpms are all over the place and all the lights come on on the dash and my headlights start to flicker like it wants to die and so to make it stop i have to shut my car off and let it sit for a minute and start it back up but that only works about 20% of the time or else i have just for it to pass or until it dies. I have a 1996 Chrysler Cirrus LXi with the V6.

I agree with the catalitic....my 96 had a bad carbon build up in the metal tube to the right of the intake manifold...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!
RUNS LIKE BRAND NEW

You might want to try a tune up. Also put your hand at the exhaust, if there is barely anything coming out, your catalytic convertor may be clogged up.

Check the wire harnesses around the exhaust cross-over. Many have found degraded wires there, as I did. The cover is held by Velcro. Also change your spark plug wires, especially the rear ones.

Engine suddenly dies


You need to have it scanned for codes. If it has a crank position code then you need that sensor. They fail alot. If you are standing in front of vehicle it is on pass side of motor down by the crankshaft pulley. It has a 10mm nut securing it to the timing cover. Also the sensor has 1 connector on it you remove that, then you take the bolt out. Spray some penetrating oil on it. Grab some channel lock pliers and work it back and forth. The sensor has a metal bail on it to. You can buy them at a parts store or a dealership should be around 40 to 50 bucks. I know guys who keep an extra one in the truck while on trips.
