#74 of 81 Chrysler Sirrus dies slowly part 2
Oct 22, 2012 (1:44 pm)
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 81 My car doesn't turn on
Jan 10, 2013 (8:09 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?

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?
