Question about 1999 Chrysler Cirrus

Open Question

My '99 Cirrus stalled 3 times in 2wks. usually when I made a lane change, slowed to make a turn, or turned into a parking spot. Southside in Red Deer had 3 stalls after a cold start, but after checking and cleaning and replacing a plug and gasket, still couldn't find anything that should have caused trouble. I will test drive it carefully for a week but am unnerved about driving on the highway in case it stalls again. I would not trade it and pass the problem to a new owner if the problem cannot be solved. Your service bulletin suggests installing a (very expensive) revised EGR valve. Has this proved to be succesful in other Cirrus owners' experiences?

SOURCE: 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..

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

SOURCE: The car starts OK. When driving, sometimes the engine stalls and suddenly starts again and starts accelerating at the same time.

Before you tear apart and replace the whole car like I did, you have THREE converters on that car. The front two are part of the y-pipe and one on center pipe. Vacuum check when hot or look under it in the dark after running about twenty minutes, any glowing red in converter. you need to clean or replace. vinegar and distilled water soaking, it can be done, will help clean the y-pipe one, the other is 75 bucks aftermarket and worth the change.

My 99 subaru legacy 2.5 feels like its going to stall when im turning at slow speeds like about to park.

if you are turning the wheel all the way until it stops then you are putting the steering pump in a bind cuasing the engine to slow down more causing the engine to stall ,,, recommend you turn the steering wheel all the way you are going until the wheel stops and then back the other way a little bit to stop this binding,, shoulsd stop your problem

There are SO many things that could be to blame, such as a relay sticking in the Engine Management System, which controls fuel cut-off on deceleration, for example.

Have you changed the fuel filter yet?
If it's the original on a 99 model and a previous owner has run the tank dry, it will have sucked dirt into the filter.

Otherwise, the fuel pump may not be working efficiently.
Does the engine sound ok and maintain steady revs, around 850/900rpm when it's started up?

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.
