I also have a 1996 cirrus....was having a problem with idle and sputtering when warm.... that 1.5 ft metal tube on the right of the upper intake manifold and the little port that it is connecting the metal tube and the manifold>>>CLEAN THAT<<<it has a build up of carbon.
I think that is part of the emission sensor ...check egr sensor??
what i did was chipped the carbon away from the manifold port, then vacummed manifold out buy removing the air hoses on top the motor,opening the carb intake and vacummed with a shop vac through the manifold port, with the hose i soaked it in gas for 1/2 hour then blew it out with a compressor....worked like a charm and runs like a bat out of hell now !!
email me if that worked for you

Most likely in this severe weather the fluid and the bands in the transmission need time to circulate and warm up. It is a good idea in severe weather to allow a vehicle to warm up for at least 4 - 6 minutes before driving it. Remember that oils and lubricants get very thick in cold weather.

Transmission fluid hose burst, fixed it, add fluid now the car won't move...


Two litres? Unless you are outside the USA, transmission fluid generally comes in quart containers. If you only added 2 quarts, yes, it's very possible the fluid level is low. However, you don't want to add too much. There should be a dip stick for checking fluid level. Run the vehicle until the engine is good a warm, about 15-20 minutes, and then check the fluid level. Add as needed. But remember, don't add too much. Add a little at a time, as you get close to full.

When outside temp is above 80 degrees, engine will not start after running for a while. maybe vapor lock? After engine cools, 15-20 minutes engine starts.


Check the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. If it is faulty or disconnected, it will tell the engine computer that the engine is still fully cold even when it is actually warm. The computer will then schedule too much fuel for a warm start--flooding the engine. You wind up waiting for the excess fuel to evaporate and the engine to cool down some and "match" the faulty sensor before it will start.

Another possibility is a leaking fuel injector. Again, a warm engine with too much fuel dripping from an injector will flood.
