I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus with 52000 miles. It stalls out between 45-75 mph whether I am in cruise or not. The accelerator will be completely non-responsive during this time (the tps sensor has been changed). This occurs without spitting out a computer code or check engine light. The other problem that may be connected to this, is the computer reads zeros on the engine information when connected to the diag. Machine but reads the others just fine. Looking at all my problems do you think its the crank sensor, the computer, the distributer, or what. I Would really appreciate your insight.

When the vehicle dies on you, how hard is it to re-start? One time and it restarts, takes a few cranks, has to wait a few minutes, etc?

I have the same thing with my 2000 Cirrus. For me it usually takes at least two minutes, but my last trip after two hours of highway driving, it left me on the side of the highway eight times! Not a comfortable place to be! Chrysler mechanics think its the fuel pump but aren't sure. As soon as it happens, I start my car partway and can hear the fuel pump whine. Any ideas?

As we have so many questions, when a technician opens up a forum, he/she will generally looks for the ones that have not been answered. The ones that have already had more than one replied will be assumed that they have been taken care of.

Any way, with regards to your problem, have your mechanic to start checking the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. these two sensors work in tandem and are responsible for ignition timing and fuel delivery. So, it doesn't matter if you have spark and fuel (most basic things to check for no-start conditions), your vehicle requires both sensor to be operational for the spark to ignite the fuel.
