Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

1 Answer

Car Fire This morning the car just caught on fire. It was running good up until this happened. I still don't know what happened. All I know is that the care is totaled and I'm out of a car. What could have caused this problem. I am waiting to have it towed now. Please advise.

You very well could have had a neg cable touching a positive cable which would have burnt it up or a small gas leak which led up to this.

My 2006 Ford Taurus sitting in carport an hour after driving caught on fire under the hood for no apparent reason. Car was previously running good with no problems. Any recalls for this?

If the fire was caused by the speed control switch failure there is a recall for that but that will need to be inspected to determine the cause as that fault has been on the recall books since 1999

My husband's 2092 f150 spontaneously caught fire while parked. Who is responsible for contacting us about recalls? Ford? Or the used car dealership we purchased it from? Who do I sue?

First you have to prove it is a spontaneous combustion, then why and where the fire started and then start to sue, knowing they have better lawyers than you can afford.
I don't know how the lay works in your country, but where I live we don't have a chance to get anything when a car caught fire, unless it was insured for that.

I have an 1998 chevy s10 automatic.this morning I noticed transmission fluid on the ground I checked and it comes out from a hose on top of the transmission but I don't see where it hook up?

From what I have read elsewhere: There is an overflow hose on top of transmission behind engine which actually is from the transfer case. Fluid will drip down onto exhaust and eventually catch on fire. Check transfer case for being overfull by taking the top fill plug out. If transmission fluid runs out, I believe the transfer case input shaft seal is shot and needs replaced. Mine caught on fire. I was lucky to get fire out before truck burnt to the ground. If you continue to drive vehicle at have something to put out a fire!!!!

My 1997 chevy blazer caught on fire. The problem was the wireing. Is there a recall on it.

Call any GM dealers sevice dept. wioth your VIN in hand and tell them that you've had a wiring issue (don't tell them of the fire just yet). and ask the service writer to run the vin for recalls or service bullins about the wiring or the items that were involved in your fire. If the vehical burnt down you might decide to let officials handle it ( fire or Police) as they may say you need a lawyer to help you recover even if GM knows about a problem. The one I know about is the O2 senser wiring shorting to the exhaust pipe and the resulting fuse failure makes the vehical shut down. but theirs no fire.

I have a 2002 buick lesabre with a 3.8 and low and behold i cranked it up in the morning (cold) and boom the intake manifold blew up in pieces. Any ideas as to what would cause that?

Wow...that's a new one on me.

Sounds like a timing issue created a backfire of biblical proportion and blew the manifold apart.

While tearing down to replace the manifold, go ahead and take a look at timing belt.

Good luck (and I truly mean it) with this one!
