1995 Chrysler Cirrus

Friday, September 4th, 2009

I have a 1995 Chrysler Cirrus that keeps dying. It has a new distributor, valve cover gaskets, plugs and plug wires. Its starts immediately after it dies and it may die several times before it is drivable. It sometimes dies when you are driving. It is getting worse. Do you have any suggestions as to what is causing this problem? Ed

You will need some technical help- here is what must be done:
Monitor the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor and the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor with a scope and compare to a normal pattern. If one of the sensors signals is lost or is erratic, make sure the sensor has 8 volts on the Orange/White wire and less than 50mV on the Black/Blue wire. This is the sensor ground circuit. The Grey/Black wire on the CKP sensor is the signal wire and should have 5 volts with the sensor disconnected. The Tan/Yellow wire for the CMP sensor is the signal wire and it should have 5 volts with the sensor unplugged. Replace the problem sensor or correct its wiring.
