Have you checked the fuel pump? (I have a '97 V6 with 77,000 and it went out recently)...
#27 of 81 The common stalling problem...
Dec 03, 2009 (8:11 pm)
1997 V6 - 77,000 miles.
It has been stalling mostly when I come up to a light or stop sign, coasting in general.
So far I have replaced:
distributor cap, spark plugs, wires, CAM sensor, Crankshaft Sensor (is that the same?), both belts, MAP sensor, my fuel pump was replace 10 months ago...
What is next? I have heard maybe the idle air flow sensor? I know this is a common problem...has anything helped?

I determined that the ASD relay was not engaging. The relay itself was good. I determined that the terminal 85 (a Dk. Blue /violet wire had the same voltage as terminal 30 the supply. That means that there was not a complete circuit to ground to energize the ASD relay. I pulled the large connector on the top and towards the front of the car on the PCM and found the Dk. Blue/violet wire and cut it about 3 " from the plug. I then grounded the end that goes to the ASD relay. The relay engaged, and I had voltage to the ignition coil primary. Upon cranking I did see several flashes on my spark plug tester, but still will not start. It looks like the PCM is not grounding the ASD relay coil. If the PCM is not supplying a complete circuit for the ASD relay, it's likely not doing other things. Going to order a PCM. Will advise.

we have a 98 cirrus that is just over 2 yrs old now. Its been in the shop more than my driveway. We bought it used from a small garage and for some DUMB reason we keep bringing it to that shop for repairs. It was in the shop 7 times in a yr and a half. The check engine light was on steady for almost a year .. LOL good fn car eh? Anyhow, after changing several sensors and other parts with NO relief ... we finally had a pvt guy with good diagnostics check it out for a few days... replaces a map sensor ( thats what it sounded like he was saying ) its been stall free ( touch wood) for 5 months now. Thats the longest time so far ... sadly.. its in the shop again right now again, for a week again ... the stick shift cable broke, which we think the mechanic broke during one of his repairs and finally just snapped. this is our car from hell and we have now spent more for repairs than what the car cost us. We are in wayyyyyyy too deep to do anything but keep on repairing it, Eventually all the parts will be new anyhow. Anyhow... check that map sensor as a possible cure to the stalling. Its really scarey to have it stall while moving.

Ok so the car is still at a Chrysler mechanic.. It now has more problems then before.. It was misfiring on 5 outa six cylinders now its 6 outta 6.. i have replaced the idle air control and egr valve now 2 xs, new distributor, new distributor cap, wires and plugs.. So they called me the other day and ECU (i think thats right) and that it was 1,500.00.. well needless to say i told them i wasnt buying one right now and if they had a way to try it before i buy it to make sure that is it, next day they called said its not it.. their new motive is that somethings wrong with the wireing..I have already spent well over 1200 and replaced parts that didnt need to be replaced. i will let you know as soon as i find anything else out

I have a 97 Chrysler Cirrus with the 2.5L V6. I have had some problems with it. It has been stalling for a while now, as well as the check engine light being on. I was driving it yesterday and it just died while driving 30mph. THe engine died and I coasted it to the side of the road. For the first little bit the gauges stuck at 30mph and 2k rpm. I am a horrible mechanic and am hoping to figure out what the problem is. If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it.

Came home today and pulled into the garage to clean out the interior. Was parked for mabe an hour. Went to move the car out and it will not start. At first it started but seemed to be starved for fuel, Now it will turn over forever but will not fire. Any ideas?

I read in one of your posts that you had a cirrus that was blowing a number of fuses. The Fuel pump fuse. I have a 99 cirrus which is blowing a 20 amp fuse that is labeled Fuel and Ignition.
Just curious if you ever resolved what was making your blow?
Mine had been pretty intermittent. it had blown three times in 7 months, but then blew three in one days with very little car movement between them. I suspect something is causing and intermittent short but I'm not sure where to look first.
I have been fortunate in that I had installed a remote car starter which ends up by passing the blown fuse as long as I but the key into the on position first. This allows me to move the car or drive a short distance when it has happened. But I can't use the brake or the auto start shuts off. Any input would be appreciated.
