Question about 1987 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

1 Answer

My 1988 Chrysler labaren has developed a serious electronic stall issue, after about 2 miles (distance varies from 500 feet to not stalling at all) and usually in the morning the car will suddenly and smoothly loose all power as if someone shifted into neutral and shut the motor off, then after I wait from 10 to 20 minutes after i coast to a stop it starts and runs again.... its a 2.5 liter, E.F.I engine and thus far I have replaced the coil wire, the plug wires, the plugs, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter and the rubber fuel lines on the car. through some research i have discovered it seems like a issue with either a crank position sensor, a spark pick up sensor or a ignition control module malfunction. does this seem like the proper diagnosis or am I missing something?

Could be but first I would check battery to motor and battery to body ground for corossion. Also check condition of motor to body ground strap also check under mounting bolts for corrosion. Bad or intermittent ground can cause all sorts of problems.

How many miles is in 16821 steps


That is an arbitrary question without an answer unless you provide some input as to what is the "accepted" length of a "step". Obviously, as people are of varying heights and thus varying leg length, the length of a step can vary widely. If you assume a step as the 30" pace that the US military associates with the march step, then you can calculate a distance.

16821 steps @ 30 inches per step = 504630 inches.

504630 inches divided by 12 = 42052.5 feet

Since the 5280 feet in one mile, then:

42052.5 feet divided by 5280 = 7.9644886363636... miles.

2001 Chrysler 300M repeatedly stalling; mechanics can't replicate


well, the power steering will freeze when the motor is not running. the mechanic may not find what seems to be the problem specially when no warning lights are coming. you can try replacing the fuel cervo and this will surely help. not everyone knows about this.

Driving on 495 at 70 miles an hour and car dies.. does turn over


Both the interior lights and car stalling are common problems with most Chrysler 300's in that era. The most common fix for the interior lights was " headlight lamp connector failure" due to "bad relay connectors".

The stalling problem was traced back to 2 different possible issues.
  1. Bad EGR valve; when exhaust gas backs up to the point where the car will skip and sometimes stall
  2. Bad Crank Position Sensor
I hope this helps clarify your problem. Best of luck.

Bmw 325i 2003 stall


Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

Stalls at low speed when in cruise control


You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!

Stalling


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.

2005 300c has 26,000 miles on it. When we fill it with gas it stalls. We do not overfill nor do we wait until the pump clicks off. We stop before that. Spent $600 with local dealer in May, filled it 6...


Same problem with my 2005 300c. It's happened five times to me, including stalling on the expressway. I looked at the posts. Too many differing views - without a real solution. Talk to three Chrysler mechanics and got three different "solutions." As much as I love this car (bought new June 2004), I'm ready to get rid of it and get a BMW or a Benz.
