Engine Performance problem
2000 Chrysler Cirrus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
For some reason my car takes about 3 (10-second) turns of the key to start and even then when it starts. The car vibrates and shakes (in the engine area) to turn on.
After this problem occured, I got a tune-up at the request of an Automotive shop. Got the tune-up and the problem still persists.
After researching on the problem, I thought it could be the fuel pump fuse, fuel pump or fuel injector.
I asked a mechanic and he said maybe the spark plugs are lose. Done.
I also added some Valvoline fuel injector cleaner. Done.
Again, the only problem with my car is when I need to start it. Once I start it, it handles like a dream. No problems, only that the fuel gauge jumps up and down and the empty light flickers (this happens even when I have a full tank.
have the same problem?
