Question about 1999 Chrysler Cirrus

Open Question

Gas Leaking All over road, Cirrus will not crank

1999 Chrysler Cirrus - I've owned since December 2001- I've had many many problems with the car. Yesterday at a stoplight, I went to accelerate, and it suddenly wouldn't go. The oil light came on and all dash lights came on. It has a faulty idle sensor so it cuts off here and there which is what I figured it was. But it would not crank up. I tried to crank it a few times, freaking out because I'm at a busy intersection, and a guy pulls up behind me and says there's gas all around the back of my car. So I get out and sure enough, there's gas spewed around my car.

The fire department had to come out and verify it was safe to be towed, and they looked under my Cirrus. They said it was obviously coming from the top of the fuel tank and asked me had I hit anything recently...I hadn't.

I had the Cirrus towed to my mechanic who I am sure is tired of seeing it. He did not sound positive on the phone when I told him what was going on with it. It has 175k on it, and has had every thing you can imagine go wrong except transmission failure. It's even had all oil valves replaced in 2005. In November, I paid almost $800 for a major tune up. My anxiety is so bad right now because I am sick of paying for all these repairs and knowing this car will be unreliable for me.

Can anyone make an assumption about what could possibly be wrong and about how much you think it will cost? Thanks guys :(

SOURCE: Car over heats in short distances

This really sounds like your radiator fan is working. Slow speeds under 20MPH the fan is needed badly. Over 20MPH there is enough ram air to sufficiently cool down the radiator. You should find a fuse for it in the Power Distribution Center under the hood. Check big and small. If the fuses are good and you're convinced the radiator fan isn't coming on, try swaping the rad fan relay with another in the PDC. As far as the "Check engine" lite goes, a transmission fault can turn on the lite. However if your radiator fan is not working that will also turn on the "Check engine" lite.
Good luck with that and let me know if you still have issues.

Show me a picture of the water pump on a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXI


The pump is part of the timing components. You only want to do this one time. So replace all the timing components. You don't have to replace the crank or cam gears.

1999 CIRRUS WON'T START!!!


Right area. If it is a 2.4L, replace them. If it is a 2.5L, you need a distributor most likely.

Want to buy a chrysler crrus lxi, good idea or not?


Don't buy it. My husband and I have a 1996 Cirrus and it is a money pit. We have only owned the thing for a short while but we have already had to fix some major problems - and now the horn won't stop honking and the shim we are using to stop it from doing so is no longer working. We are going to have to take apart the steering column and disable the horn at this point. Hope its not connecting to any of the tail lights!
