Question about 1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue
I have replaced the fuel line filter, fuel pump, thermostat, oxygen sensor, temp change sensor and some other things. I have seen this problem posted a few times but not seen any real solution. The key is it happens after the engine warms up. Really need a solution. Thanks to anyone that has one. Gary

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.
the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

It sounds like a fuel line broke, most likely because it rusted through. The fuel pump is running otherwise you wouldnt see any fuel spewing out from under the car. Get under the car and see where the line broke. In most cases, you can replace the broken section of line and it will be fine.
To answer your question though, to replace the fuel pump, you will need to remove the fuel tank from the car, as the pump is attached to the sending unit inside the tank. To remove the tank, you will need to disconnect the fuel filler neck, the fuel lines, and unplug the electrical connector, then get a jack under the tank and remove the straps holding the tank in the car. Lower the jack and you will be able to access the top of the tank where the sending unit is located. Romove the lock ring holding it in, and remove it from the tank.

Testimonial: "Got exactly the information I suspected was my problem."
For the price of a can of throttle body, spray cleaner, I'd remove the IAC motor , clean it, and port it came out of and try it and see what happens. It sure sounds like the same old dirty IAC problems that are frequent . Normally that will cure it, and if it does, but problem re-occurs later, replace the IAC motor. (IAC= Idle Air Control.) Regulates idle under load such as AC on, turning, braking etc, to step up idle to eliminate stalling when off the throttle.

The fuel pump is a good place to start since I doubt if the timing belt has broken in a vehicle this new unless you have been racing it. Yes, the pump is submerged in the tank. It could also be the fuel filter and that should be located under the passenger side of the vehicle near the gas tank itself.

Since it sounds where this is intermittent, I would be looking to replace the camshaft or shaft speed sensor. I had a similar problem and could not find anything wrong with the car when it ran... So I told my mechanic to replace that, since it is an electrical senor, it is something that can work fine and cut out for no reason. Disabling the car for awhile. Almost as if it gets to a certain temperature that it will not read the speed and the car shuts down as it is programed to do.
