I had this exact thing happen to me when on vacation and it sucked, they changed the i wanna say it was the fuel positioning sensor, the check engine light did go out at first for about 10 minutes, however i did not have this particular problem again. I have read this car has multiple recalls so if u are having problems with this car call chrysler or look up the recall problems.

Hi there, I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus with 207k miles. It has the 2.5L V6 in which I just had the head-gasket redone and the head shaved less than 3k miles ago, I ran it out of gas recently on accident, put some new gas in and it ran fine for 700 to 1000 miles, Now the engine died a slow death, I would be driving at around 2K RPMS and it would just loose power, like fuel or spark just quit, then it would kick back on and be like normal, its been doing this for the last 200 miles, it just kept getting worse and worse it would die under a load and just sitting at idle around 2k RPMS, likr it lost spark, it would backfire and make popping sounds in the air intake, finally the other day it died completely and wouldn't restart, had it towed home... thought it was the gas even tho the gauge read 1/4 tank, so I put some gas in and after turning it over for 30 seconds it fired back up and it would rev right up... So me being optomistic i drove it again, made it 3.5 miles and same thing, with my foot on the gas driving around 2k RPM it just lost power and RPMS, so i stopped and tried to rev it up and it's almost like its being starved of fuel... checked that by taking the fuel rail line off and it has plenty of fuel in the line... it was revving up, very very slow in neutral. As soon as I put it in gear it didn't even have enough power to move.. eventually it quit starting altogether and before any of this happened it took a while to start (5-7 seconds of turning it over before it fired up) It has all new plugs and wires, oils, fluids, etc.. the Ignition Coil IS the OLD one and the only check engine code is a p0134 which is OXY Sensor Bank 1 no circuit input, in which it had this code before... I've read and heard some say Cam sensor or a un-grounded circuit, I'm just so fed up and parts are so much money for this car... Head-gasket job was 1500 bucks and I got the car for free and have around $2500 into it... any ideas guys? I'd like to fix it and sell it or sell it as is for the right price.... The motor is seriously sandwhiched in there and hard to get at things... any help would be appreciated.. I usually do my own mechanical work and can use a multi-meter. Im in too deep money wise to stop now... please help with this nightmare of a car! Thanks guys n gals -Peter
P.S. Someone on another forum said it could be the EGR (Exhaust Gas Reciculatory) Valve stuck open or closed, he said there is a slot on the exhaust side of the EGR pipeing where i can adjust the stem that open and closes the flapper and lubricate it....
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance..

well I took the EGR off and cleaned it with kerosene and carb cleaner and soaked it and worked the vacumm valve action free, it was kinda stuck but i put it back together checked all the vaccum lines and its still doing the same thing will run but hard to start, only at idle, you try to revv it up and it just takes forever then dies, Im now thinking it could be the catylitic converter the way to took a while to die, where exactly is it located under the car? I see two muffler shaped objects on the exhaust, the muffler in back obviously just a muffler then a smaller one under the mid car and a cherry bomb looking thing after it, I wanted to cut open the cat from the bottom and smash all the stuff out and just weld it back up but i wanna make sure i cut into the right thing first..... thanks again, peter

Well the car is still in the driveway, I got pissed off and hollowed out the catalytic converter, didn't help. I'm pretty sure this is a Electrical problem... driving at around 2,000 RPMS just cruising it dies for a second or two, then it will turn back on almost like the spark plugs quit firing for a second or two... I thoroughly cleaned the EGR valve and etc. checked all the fuses and relays under the hood, seem to be all good, I heard the coil-pack drive gear is aluminum and can wear out?? I'm just so fed up with this Lemon car, got it for free and have over $2500 in it and it still doesnt run... I'd be willing to sell it for the right price as is (make offer) my e-mail is PeterJFuchsJrgmail.com shoot me a message if you have any ideas as to whats wrong with it, I'm thinking something electrical as in bad ground or something of the like, let me know what you think. Thanks in advance!

I have the same problem with my car too!! I changed the MAP sensor but it didn't fix the problem. Now mechanics are suggesting me to change the PCM which costs about $350 at advance autoparts. So I'm not sure whether I should change the PCM or just keep driving it the way it is

Was your problem fixed by changing the alternator?
#78 of 92 My car doesn't turn on
Jan 10, 2013 (7:09 pm)
Hi, I have a 1998 2.5 L Cirrus. It was running perfect last week. But two days ago I came back home and left it for two days and now it doesn't turn on anymore. When i turn the ignition, it makes cranking noise which means it's trying to start. So at first I thought my battery might be weak so I put a new battery in but it still isn't turning on Anybody has any ideas for me?

#80 of 92 1998 chrysler cirrus

hello. I have a 1998 chrysler cirrus and im running into an issue. It runs great in idle,but soon as i shift it into a gear and step on the gas the SOB cuts off. I recently replaced the battery, the distributor, the spark plugs, the rotor, the egr valve,the air filter, the wires, and the axle. all of which could have caused this. please im in need of help, if you have any suggestions or can point me in the right direction i would appreciate it.

My '97 cirrus blows a 20 amp fuse under the hood after a few drives and then will not start. My mechanic is stumped. Anyone know why?
