You probably have a bad sensor or relay. There are several different sensors and relays that can cause this. But you're in luck, cars made after 1996 can be easily diagnosed with a code reader that simply plugs into the pigtail under the dash. It will give you the computer codes for problems with your electrical system. Dealerships charge alot of money to read the codes. But, for the same cost or less you can buy a code reader online (like e-bay) and you'll own it. It's a handy tool and will save alot of guess work & unnessary repairs.

Please Help 97 Chrysler Cirrus Stalling out

Could be alot of things. If it runs good when cold and gets worse when warm, at low RPM, it may be the EGR valve. May just need cleaning. A plugged fuel filter won't cause the light to come on, but it will cause a lean condition, which will. Possibly a bad crank sensor, they have been known to have trouble at the connection, check it to make sure it's clean and tight. it's on the pass side, at the rear, were the motor & trans bolt up. first things to do are to make sure the battery connections are clean and tight. Then replace the filter..Please click on this link its the service manual ,,,

Good luck..

Stall after driving a few miles but starts right up anf goes a few more before stalling again.

Need to check the maintenance schedule of your car to see the condition and health of the engine.
But to start with please check the fuel pump , check if the calibration was done or the pressure is optimum. Check the fuel filter, check the ignition, the plugs and the injectors.
It will be good to have these sections looked into , overhauled or replaced if there is an observation of weakness.

since it is a 2000 there is no distributor. it sounds like you need to go to your local auto parts store and buy a fuel filter and good ol can of seafoam. your fuel injectors may be dirty.p.s. install fuel filter after seafoam ;) thats the trickp.p.s. dont do it in a garage-youll probably kill yourself. it will smoke some :)

I have a cirrus with a 2.4 engine that stalls. You have to stop and put the car in park turn key off wait for about thirty seconds and the car will restart. I f you do not turn key off and leave it in on...

> If you do not turn key off and leave it in on position when the car stalled it will not start.
I have three vehicles that all are built this way; that action is a safety feature. The problem you have is with the stalling, not the cycling of the ignition switch.
Have the computer scanned; check with any local chain auto parts store in your area to ensure that they offer the service free of charge but all I know do.
There are a number of reasons for the engine to stall:
- Fuel pump - A relay going intermittant - Ignition switch itself failing - Coil pack (ignition coil) failing
Some of these problems should show up as an error code in your car's computer.
