Question about 1998 Chrysler Cirrus

1 Answer

Possible Fuel filter/fuel pump issues

Car will be driving fine but once in awhile when I start it, it will sputter(like it's missing or not getting gas). Once in gear and I press on the gas it wasnt getting gas at all then it was like it had to catch up with itself and ran fine. This has happened several times with weeks sometimes months in between the occurrences.

Your car does not have an inline fuel filter. Do you have a check engine warning light on.

check if you have a spark when engine dies. if not, check the rpm sensor or ignition coil. both have the simptoms like you describe.

Hi! I strongly suggest that you have a PCM (powertrain control module) reset. The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including the engine, transmission, accessories, etc. It's like a car's brain that when it's faulty everything else fails. If the PCM can't be resetted specially when it's heavily damaged. I suggest that you have it replaced to get rid of all the troubles. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

96 Toyota 4Runner sputters when starting when hot only!


how about the fuel filter. I didn't see this on your list and it should be done every 20000km and the air filter. I think its a fuel filter. not the pump. could be the coils but I would start cheap and change fuel filter first. when the pump is cold it pumps with more psi to blow passed the clooged filter after warm it is weaker and has a hard time pushing through the clog

My car runs fine when it is first started, but after a while it starts stalling and stopping when I am driving.. I changed the oil filter and the fuel filter, but it still does it.


it's possible that the fuel pump is failing and begins to have problems once it gets hot. i would have someone check fuel pressure once it is warmed up and having the stalling issue.

Somewhere along the the line you may have a fuel blockage or a good dose of water in your fuel tank.Check the water in tank 1st.Add 1 litre of metholated spirits to every 20 litres of fuel.This will allow the water to break down and be burnt through the motor over time.Do this twice.If this does not work,there may be a glob of **** in the fuel tank that blocks the pickup.If this is the problem,the tank needs to be taken out and cleaned.I hope this is a start to get you back on the road.

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....
