1991 Chrysler Fifth Avenue runs 5-6 miles & stalls for 30-mins -4 hours & then starts up & goes another 5-6 miles only to stall again = ' (
Aprox. 1-2 months ago my 1991 Chrysler just stalled all the sudden...
After just driving aprox. 5-6 miles then ater cooling 30 minutes to 4 hours it will start & go another 5-6 miles & die again.
This is soo frustrating!!!
I have had a basic tune-up done & replaced several parts !!!
(doing a trial & error method of fixing it).
Finally, went to have a dynaostic ran on it & it said 2 codes: ais circuits & alternator circuits -which i was told were in the computer module... So we replaced that- the car ran great for 1 week & then it was back to the drive 5-6 miles it stalls -let cool 30mins-4hrs & it drives another 5-6 miles...
(I have limited income & can NOT afford to buy another vechicle at this time. My only option is to fix this vechicle - Just wish I knew EXACTLY what was wrong with it!!! = ' ( )

Hi. It would be useful to get a code read and some live data from a decent diagnostic tool. There are quite a few possible causes including, pressure in tank - if the fuel tank can't vent pressure then a vacuum will eventually form stopping fuel getting to the engine, this will cause it to loose power and stall. Then after a few mins the pressure will drop and the process start again, easy test is when the car stalls remove filler cap - if that's the fault there will be an audible hiss and the car will start up again.
part blocked exhaust will have same problems but will more generally cause a lack of power and acceleration.
are there other symptoms? i.e only when conering or only when pulling off or stopping, engine light on/off. Jon
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.
If you still have the lean burn ignition system, it has probably gone bad. Chrysler dealers used to sell a kit that included a new distributor and module to fix this problem and get rid of the lean burn system. They are probably still available online or ebay.
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.
