I own a 1999 Chrysler Cirrus. I have had trouble with the car clicking when trying to start it. I had the starter replaced last week. It has been missing so I had the spark plugs and wires changed today. It still will sometimes just quit when I am driving down the road. I was told that possibly it is the fuel pump. Can you explain where I may find the fuel pump and possibly give me a website which may have a diagram of the placement of certain parts on my car. Is this something that I may be able to replace on my own or should I have a repairman take care of it?

Also I have an antifreeze leak and I believe it is leaking from the freeze plug. Is this difficult to replace?

I will appreciate your responsible as soon as possible so I can get my car back on the road.

Thanks

Fuel Pump:
I am not convinced that it is your fuel pump. Before you spend the money (about $250) for the pump and the cost to replace (you have to remove the fuel tank to gain access to it, you should check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail and test the power to the pump. Stratusphere. Us is a website for Stratus/Cirrus/Breeze enthusiasts and have many photos and how-to instructions.

Coolant leak:
I don't think that it is leaking from freeze plug. You need to get under the car and physically check where the leak is coming from. I suspect either hoses or the water pump.
