Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

Chrysler Stratus/Cirrus 2.5 check engine flash every two minutes

Hello,

I have a 97 Chrysler Stratus(Cirrus in the US. I'm from Holland. Nice car, but an unusual error since yesterday. Every two minutes while I'm driving the check engine light flashes one time for half a second along with the cruise light. Also the engine gives a huble at the same time. Then it's al fine, for two minutes and it happens again and again. The first time when driving away the locks also lock along with the event described above. I checked the codes and get 12,51 and 55.

Anybody got a clue what to do?

    Tanny slipping? What could I do to verify this? I should check oil level first I think. What botheres me is that it happenes exacly every two minutes, you can set your want on it.

    Checked fluid, it's red and smells not burned. Level's ok too. I checked the code 51 and it means an oxigen sensor indicated at one time or more fuel mixture is lean. Could it have to to with the injectors?

    Yes I did, disconnecting the + side of the battery for 15 minutes or so did the job. I wouldn't know if it's a permanent fix since I sold the car not long after that. Good Luck

    is the fluid brown or a burn't smell to it?

  • james lee Nov 11, 2008

    running lean means not getting enough fuel , could be a emission problem

The oil from the engine came out. no sounds from the engine and no reaction from the oil lamp. I turned off the engine. Can this be a problem with the oilfilter? Chrysler stratus 1996.


Yes it could be, if the o-ring from the old filter stuck to the engine it could have gotten pinched in between the new filter and the block causing a leak. It could also have lost the o-ring from the new filter. I'd just unscrew it and check.

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!!
