20 Most Recent 1998 Chrysler Cirrus Questions & Answers

Most radiators are simply bolted into position. It is the work needed to prepare it for removal that takes the time. It looks like major surgery but is a simple job. This is also one of those jobs that will take the skin off at least one knuckle.
You might need to remove the front grille and get under the vehicle for access to some parts.
**Caution** Only do this when the Engine is COLD!

- Drain the coolant system.
- Slacken the clamp on the top radiator pipe and slide it back out of the way. The top pipe will be a tight fit but should pull off. You might need to grip the pipe at the radiator end and gently but firmly twist it back and forward a small amount as you pull the pipe off.
- Carefully look down between the engine and radiator and find the electrical connection for the cooling fan. Unclip it.
- Find the lower radiator pipe and remove it like you did the top pipe. You might get better access to it from under the vehicle. *Note* Try not to get any coolant on you face, (It doesn't taste nice and is bad for you).
- The Radiator will be bolted to the front cross bars the grille attaches to. usually with 4 bolts. 2 top, 2 bottom. The radiator should tilt towards the engine and lift out. *Note* Some radiators are fitted with a sensor for the coolant system so check and disconnect it before fully removing the radiator. It will come out with the fan attached so you might need to wriggle it out past other engine parts.
- The Fan assembly will need to be unbolted and transferred to the new radiator.
- Refitting is the reverse of this.
- Do not over tighten the pipe clamps. Turn them until you fell them tighten then give them No More Than a quarter turn.
Once refitted, refill with fresh coolant then start the engine. Let the engine idle for 10 to 15 minutes to bring it to working temperature. This opens the Thermostat allowing the radiator to refill. Check for leaks.
Turn off the engine, Give it a few minutes to cool down and recheck the coolant level. Top it up if it needs it.
Give it a day or two of use and recheck the levels again. Top up if needed.

If it will not move, with key in key slot, you have to take the steering housing off. make sure you have tried pressing on brake, pushing button on shift handel to move out of current drive positon. jerking the steering wheel left and right at same time while trying to move key! Else its dismantling the column to get at ignition key slot.

Fuel pump and filter were changed how long ago, and how many miles ago? Did they change the wrong thing(s)? What engine is in your Cirrus?

Such are "universal" parts! But what can the vendor do, if their "universal" unit has to substitute for 2-wire, 3-wire, and 4-wire systems, without any modifications?

The most obvious is water into the ignition system, or maybe corrosion in the engine bay connections to the ECU, or ignition module. A small amount of moisture here would cause a big problem.

Are the spark plug boots and all HT components water-proof? Are the HT leads in good condition. no cracks etc. No tracking around the coil pack?

Pull loom connectors apart to look for corrosion. Clean, spray will water repellant and re-assemble.

Is the car missing an engine bay undershield that should be there.
