SOURCE: 2001 toyota tundra stalls when put in gear

If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped it, then I would suspect that the 'lock-up' function on the torque converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it is the same as popping the clutch on a conventional transmission car, which cause the same stall. If you can't drive the car, I would call around to several independent transmission shops to find one that is familiar with the Chrysler 41TE transmission and that appears to be honest. Ask if they have a diagnostic readout box to communicate with the transmission control computer. If they do then have the car towed there and let them try a readout. If they get a code 38 or 0740 (depending upon what year model you have there) then that would show that the lock-up is the problem. If you are lucky the problem will be with a solenoid switch or valve in the box on the side of the transmission which can be corrected easily without removing the transmission. Because this possibility (along with about 6 other causes) is worth pursuing, I would want a shop that is not going to talk you into a "rebuild" without first looking into all the possible reasons for the lock-up condition so you aren't "taken for a ride".
So ask friends if they know a good honest shop and check them out as to how well they understand the Chrysler transmission. You may end up at a Chrysler dealer, but insist on their trying all the other possible causes before authorizing removal of the transmission which is a very expensive repair and may not be necessary.

SOURCE: Car petrol engine revolution surges.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 2000 Toyota Sienna Stalls while driving

yes i would say to check the parts yourself and save some money the fuel filter should be located at the rear firewall of the engine there is a hose going into it and one coming out on the new one there is generally an arrow to show fuel direction spark plugs you will find easy enough ignition coil is on the side of the body it is a round thing with usually four wires going into it and a heavy wire coming out from the top check it after the car has been run for a while if it gets hot that could well be your problem also there is a resistor under neath it same with that the vacuum hoses are small (thin) rubber hoses check to see if they are cracked on the ends if they are then replace them the air sensor is probably on the end of the air intake the large metal/plastic scoop hope this helps regards Jim

Check engine light, falling revs


The check engine light is an indication that the computer has detected a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. The codes will show what faults the computer has identified. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. This will help narrow down the cause of your problem and help you make a determination on how you want to proceed. Hope this helped and best wishes.
