Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus
Thermastat changed, still no heat now check engine light is on. Auto Zone says it's one of three things:
1. mechanical condition- vacuum leek
2. throttle cable not free
3. Idle speed screw misadjusted
I have a 1996 chrysler cirrus
my brother thinks the vacuum leek but that doesn't tell me how to fix it.
Nothing mentioned above other than the thermostat has anything to do with getting heat in the vehicle. The Cirrus has no restriction or control valve on the hoses going to the heater core. Sounds to me like your coolant system is low on fluid and as a result there is a air lock in the heater core. Solution is to make sure you have circulation, Make sure coolant system is full, with vehicle running remove the return interior heater hose (usually larger hose) to let any air out then quickly put back on.

I had the same problem....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 is 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!
MY CAR FLIES LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!!!
