1997 Chrysler Cirrus Problems

Engine Misfire Due to Oil in Spark Plug Tubes

The spark plug tube seals may fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.

Broken Wires in Wiring Harness May Cause Engine Problems

If the car will not start, stalls, or hesitates while accelerating, it may be caused by wires in the wiring harness that are broken internally. This is typically found where the wires pass under the distributor.

Automatic Transmission May Fail Prematurely
