Question about 1999 Chrysler Cirrus

1999 Chrysler Cirrus Lxi 2.5l high rpm

I replaced the timing belt and water pump on my Cirrus. After reassembly, the engine runs at 2500-3000 rpm at idle. The throttle cables are not sticking, and the fuel pressure is great. What could cause this?

    Turns out, I had the vacuum line between the master cylinder and the intake disconnected at the master cylinder. I had not worked in that area, so I didn't look for it until I found it listed as a problem on another site. Thanks for the help, all is good now :)

The throttle position sensor may be misaligned. This tells the computer how much throttle is being applied, and when they go bad, or come out of alignment, the idle tends to get up there. If that's not the issue, remove your air cleaner, the housing and everything until you get to the MAP sensor. Give it a good spray with carb cleaner, let it dry and replace the air cleaner with a new one. If the MAP sensor detects minimal air flow, the computer jacks up the idle to compensate.

I have no clue on how to replace water pump on a 1995 chrysler cirrus 2.5L. I have to do this myself I dont have the money for a garage.


This is found on the autozone.com website.

2.5L Engine
See Figures 3 through 7
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain the engine coolant.

This procedure requires removing the engine timing belt and the auto tensioner. To help assure proper alignment at assembly, it may be helpful to set the engine at TDC on No. 1 compression stroke. This should align all timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and both camshaft sprockets.
  1. Remove the accessory drive belts and crankshaft damper.
  2. Remove the right engine mount. This requires safely supporting the engine with a floor jack and wood block so the mount can be removed.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Remove the timing belt and tensioner.

  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. Thoroughly clean all sealing surfaces. Inspect the pump for damage or cracks, signs of coolant leakage at the vent, and excessive looseness or rough turning bearings. Any problems require a new pump.
  2. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Wet the O-ring with water to make installation easier. DO NOT use oil or grease on the O-ring.
  3. Install a new gasket on the water pump and fit the pump inlet opening over the water pipe. Press the assembly together to force the pipe into the water pump.
  4. Install the water pump-to-engine bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  5. Install the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Set the timing belt tension.
  6. Install the timing belt covers. Install the right engine mount. Remove the floor jack and engine block from underneath the engine.
  7. Install the crankshaft damper.
  8. Install the accessory drive belts and set to the proper tension.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system.
  11. Start the engine and verify proper operation, with no leaks

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.

How often do i replace the timing chain 1999 chrysler sebring lxi


The belt is supposed to last for 105,000 miles. These sebring cars are notorious for breaking timing belts well before then. If your car has over 80,000 on it I would schedule a timing belt change in the near future. Don't be surprized if you have to also change the water pump.

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.
