Hi, I have a 1999 Cirrus 2.5 V6, which everyone has had to replace a lot of parts from engine shutting down while driving, fuel pump, fuel filter, etc. etc. which seems to fix the problem sometimes for a while and then the problem persist again. I think I can save people a lot of money.
My car did the same thing at 88,000 miles. I dropped the tank, fuel pump tested good, worked several hours, and found out it was something so simple, I couldn't believe it. There are 2 lifting arms on the front of the engine for removal. There is a sensor just to the left of the right lifting arm. It is in plain view. The wiring is so tight against the engine arm, that over a period of time it rubbed a small bare spot, creating a short. Which in turn told the brain to shut down the fuel delivery so sparks couldn't create a fire. Couldn't hurt to check here, not even a fuse was blown. I checked several other cirrus cars, and the wiring is consistently tight at this spot. A little bit of electrical tape may save you a lot.
I like my car again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
