I absolutly agree. Tune em and run em. I had the same problem and basicly did the exact same thing and then I designed a higher volume intake tube and mass airflow canister.and had some serious snap and zip out of that little 1.3. And 43 to a gallon.

Have a mechanic do a complete tune-up (timing, plugs, distributor, wires, roter, air filter, o2 sensor). Also have the fuel filter replaced. Stop using 87 Octane gas, use 93 Octane for 3 tank fulls. Also use a water removing additive for the first tank full and fuel injector cleaning additive for the second an third tank fulls. Then use only 89 Octane after that. I had the same issue with my 97 Aspire. These cars are definitely worth fixing and maintaining now with fuel prices so high. Little fuel efficient cars are also more expensive now because of fuel prices. So just because you purchased the car cheaply don't be afraid to put money in to it now...

yes you need a new thermostat or there is low coolant. this will affect the mpg because your overheating and thats why its stalling. dont drive until you fix or you will blow your head gasket if it isnt blown already. change thermostate and check coolant.

1997 town & country stalls intermittently. ... my chrysler town & country lxi dashboard cluster ligths go out

I had the same problem in the past with the lights. I repaired it by removing the the dash panel and re-soldering the pins where the harness plugs into. I am currently having the stall issue. in my research it seems to be the crank shaft sensor. I was told that the crank shaft sensor and the cam sensor work together and have decided to change them both along with the gas filter.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have the coil pack be replaced. If the coil pack is worn out it tends to give insufficient current to the plugs. Once replaced I believe you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Self-adjusting idle brain often idles 1500-2000rpm range.

Faulty oxygen sensor or low fuel pressure can also cause these codes to be set. I'd go for a fuel pressure test when acting up if at all possible just to confirm I have pressure needed. Have heard of coil problems as well. Should be a good blue 1" min. spark from coil.

Stalling at a stoplight

sounds like your not getting enough gas try first determining iif your getting enough fuel from the gas tank to the engine and if not you might half to replace the pump because the fuel filter is part of the pump by you might be able to find just the filter somewhere, but if thats not the case then check your injectors there could be one the is misfiring or clogged so try also during a good fuel system clean on it
