Question about 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

1 Answer

I have an 87 Chrysler 5th avenue and every time I start the engine it runs for about 5 minutes and then it shuts off. I need advise on what to do. Should I fix it myself or let a mechanic take care of it. I just replaced an alternator and I already put more gas in it and it is still giving me problems. I know this is an old car but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

1987 chrysler 5th avenue starts up great idles but when you take off it shuts off immedietly cant get it runing

If car has been sitting a long time, there may be water in the gas tank, clogged fuel filter, or dirt in the carburetor - could be all three. Start at the tank and move forward toward the motor. If you do it in reverse order you can waste a lot of time and $$
