Question about 1995 Chrysler Cirrus

1 Answer

Stalled while driving and now will not start again

I had this car for about 5 years and the last 3 was spent on trying to fix it. The problem started with while driving on the highway without any warning it would die. Now that was scary when you're driving 70-75 mph and all of a sudden you have no power because the car just died in the middle of driving. Then, in the beginning it would start back up when I pulled over and tried starting it. But as the time progressed it took longer and longer to wait in order to start it back up, until one day it just didn't want to start at all... and now I'm trying to fix it but everything that I tried has failed. I don't have the money to keep bringing it to the dealer or garage to keep replacing parts and not having it running... I love this car but cannot drive it anymore... please help me. Thank you for any advice that you can give me.

    Thank you so much for your advice, but I replaced this sensor already and it didn't make any difference... ;( Some of these things I did myself with some help from my dad since after all I am a woman I don't have the same strength that he does when it comes to some of these screws :) I love fixing cars but this one just doesn't seem like it want to be fixed ;(
    If you can think of anything else please let me know I really ran out of options.

Well first of all , dont bring it to the dealer they will rip you off, now your testament is a telltale description of what happens when you have a faulty crank position sensor, have it checked or replace if necessary. in your vehicle it should be located just behind/upper left corner of the crankshaft pulley, if you decide you cant change it yourself , purchase the piece and bring it to the shop so you just have to pay for the labor

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.


Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?


I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.
