Asked by Mar 12, 2013 at 10:21 AM about the 1999 Chrysler Cirrus 4 Dr LXi Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 1999 Chrysler Cirrus keeps 'stalling' on the highway.  The car doesn't actually shut off...it just stops delivering fuel entirely.  This has been going on for over a year and it has been towed to the garage 6 times!
For a long time we had to sort of pump the gas (on/off/on/off) when driving down the highway before this stalling thing started.  Then for a while it would 'stall' but after about 10 minutes you could start it again and it would drive for a while.  Now, we can't get it to drive more than 10minutes or so before it does this.
We have changed the fuel filer, the fuel pump twice and the crank & cam sensors to no avail.
The mechanic can't figure out what is wrong with it and can't get it to stall even after hours of idling.  When we do tow it there he gets a throttle position sensor reading on his machine but assures us that this would not cause our problem.  Our 17 year old daughter commutes with this vehicle and this is a HUGE pain for us...HELP!

I don't know if this Chrysler has one but you might check and see if it has an Auto Shut Down Relay for the Computer system, just a guess that might be your problem.
