Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

2 Answers

I have a 96 Chrysler Cirrus that runs perfectly until the engine gets warm. I've replaced the plugs, wires, distributor, cap, fuel pump, crank sensor, heat sensor, ignition module. When the car throws a code, it just says misfire on multiple cylinders. When it is warm, if I back off the throttle, after a few minutes the car will run again. At times the car will slow down to 5mph and if you keep driving that way, all the misfires go away and it drives fine. Any ideas as to my problem?

I agree with the carbon....my 96 also had a bad carbon build up in the metal tube to the right of the intake manifold...what i did was took it off and soaked the tube in gas for 1/2 hour the blew it out with compressed air....while your at it you should clean that port on the intake where that metal tube was.....once all carbon chipped away, it is very important that you vacume the inside of the manifold....how you do that take the air intake off and stick your shop vac on that port where the tube was, then open your carb by hand and that should clean it right out!
VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FILL YOUR TANK WITH A GOOD OCTANE GAS ONCE A MONTH TO CLEAN THE CARBON BUILD UP

Faulty computer
faulty wiring
excessive carbon in combustion chamber, when hot, pre-ignition occurs. try using high octane gasoline first, but wait until empty, before filling up. it will take some time before the new gaz gets to the engine as the gaz lines and pump still have the old gaz.

another possibillity is water in the gaz tank.
when cold the gaz enrichment might compensate .

Is the check engine light on? An OBD II code P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected could indicate a bad crank position sensor causing a misfire. Another possibilty would be the coil or distributor cap. The 95 and 96 were notorious for burning distributor caps. My 96 used to burn one once a month which is why Chevrolet stopped using them and went to multiple coils. More information would be helpful in diagnosing the problem

I have replaced my fuel pump, fuel relay and fuel filter. Im not getting power to fuel pump. What should I do next?


If the Cirrus is a 2.5L change the Crank Sensor. The Haynes manual has a good step by step. This sensor will cause a no start. The cam sensor, coil, are built into distributor, and can not be replaced.Less you buy a recon. or new unit.Other problem would be the engine computer.

My 96 acura integra won't start but turn over


Get some engine starter spray. Follow instructions on spraying into intake. This will serve as a fuel source to test spark/ignition. You will want help cranking the car while you spray. If car stumbles and tries to run, you have a fuel problem. If after trying for a few minutes there is no change, then I would bet you don't have spark. Of course you could go further and say there could be a timing issue, no compression, etc. But I would start with the easy stuff first.
When was the last time you did a tune-up? Are the plugs in good shape?

Spark plug to distributor cap Wiring schematic for a 96 Chrysler cirrus


I'm guessing that you have the 6 cyl 2.5 liter engine because the 2.4 liter engine that the Cirrus had for that year I believe had a coil pack. The picture below is for the 2.5. If you need the other just write a reply and I will be notified in my email and I will post it if needed. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Put in fuel filter Plugs and wires can hear the fuel pump cycle but it wont run when it is wet out or high humidty the relay may have been changed what else could it be ???? Mike -


If you have a distributor cap, the cap may be cracked. This is normally how you can tell that the cap is bad. These are the symptoms.
