    i found the valve covers where leaking oil around the spark plug boots and swelling the boots causing a voltage leak. i did a tune up with new valve cover gaskets, plugs, wires, cap and rotor and she runs awesome now.

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!!

2000 cirrus want change gears goes in drive and reverse inside on the dash where it tells you what gear you in all has squares around them speedometer doesn't work


Sounds like a speed sensor, I will look into that, but if the speedometer isn't working, its either cable, or electronic. Being a 2000, I'm guessing electronic. Chrysler have a lot of electronics on the transmission, as they are electronic themselves. I had an alternator go bad and my battery died, and the car wouldn't shift, it actually down shifted while driving. Have your battery and alternator checked first, then sensors. Like shift silinoid, speed sensor etc.

Why won't my 1998 chrysler cirrus shift into gear?


I'm not familiar with YOUR Chrysler, BUT... my brother' father-in-law had a Buick [about 1998 model] that would NOT shift into any gear UNLESS the brake pedal was FULLY DEPRESSED!!!!!

I could move the shift lever into any of the indicator positions, but the transmission would not engage if my foot was not firmly on the brake pedal while selecting a gear position!

See all 2000 plymouth breeze problems


Oh yeah, you sure can! We must have a lot of them (use the search feature)! But likely not near all that the chrysler breeze is known for. I recently changed out a rack and pinion unit on a chrysler cirrus (exact same set-up as your breeze) and it was major fun on my driveway for about a week! I have to say though, that the engine and electronic controls on the cirrus has been superb and trouble free the last two years, (unlike other comments or questions I often see), and the car is approaching 220 thousand miles now, it being a '96.

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 .

Have a 2000 Chrysler cirrus LXI 6. Just had the timing belt replaced 4 days ago and now its starting to overheat. It only gets hot when im sitting still. but goes down while driving (assuming its the...


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.
