Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

1 Answer

When I turn my car on it shakes and tries to turn off. When I start to run it it want to turn off. When I am a stop sign or red light I have to put it in neutral and be pushing the gas in order for it to stay on. When it starts to take off it tries to stall. I've already put all the wiring and they told me that would do it. Nope it still kept on doing the same thing. They told me it was the fuel pump so I put the fuel pump, and nope nothing. So frustrated with it already don't know what else would it be. Anyone have any suggestions? It's a 1996 chrysler cirrus by the way.

SOURCE: Our Chrysler Cirrus 2000, developed a very rough idle.

Mine is doing the same thing. My check engine light did finally come on and when a reader was put on it the code is P0505 on the reader. When I looked that up it said "Idle air control system". I phoned my mechanic and he said to bring it in next week before it turns into a more serious problem. So far it hasn't stalled, but it makes me nervous. I am on oxygen, so I don't want to get stuck somewhere if it breaks down. So it will be going in for sure.
Hope it isn't expensive as I am on disability.

SOURCE: 1997 Cirrus battery went dead. The car ran fine

These cars are known for having engine related electrical problems that can be difficult to track down. One dead sensor is sufficient to prevent start up .

It is possible that your problem had nothing to do with the jump start or battery replacement.

Without a full diagnosis anyone not able to test the vehicle will be guessing.

One thing I would do is to check your fuse panels for all engine related fuses such as fuel pump, ignition and fuel injection to ensure these fuses are sound.
Check all visible wiring carefully including your battery connections. Carefully disconnect and then re-connect the battery at both terminals.

Your best option is to have the car towed to a reputable repairer that is familiar with these cars so he can run a full check and isolate the problem.

Whether you have blown something in the course of jump starting the car is unknown.

In future, when jump starting these older vehicles always turn the headlights on and do not turn them off again whilst the vehicle is running until after the spare battery used for the jump start has been fully disconnected. Everything else should be off.

Mazda 626 1999. The problem is that the car idle is 1250 rpm and I turn the a/c and run at 750rpm and has a misfire or at least start shaking bad .just on stoplight or stop sign other that runs good but...

the code refers to the Heated Oxygen Sensor (upstream) this would account for the high revs at idle as the fuel/air ratio is weak so the ecu is try to keep engine running ,you could try a fuel addative that is specifically designed for the catalytic converter as well as the valves etc as this will clear any carbon deposits that have built up on the sensor as well ,follow the manufacturer instructions on the product you choose

2004 Chevy Malibu won't start and shakes when stopped at light

The next time it starts shaking and acting up its the time to have a fuel pressure test, or maybe if you can't remember the last time the fuel filter been chg. do that and see if it dosent run any better. Could be filter getting cloged up, or maybe pump getting weak and dosent show up until its run a while and has got warm.
