2000 Chrysler Cirrus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

One day I was driving home and when I turned down my street my car started to putter. Then it went back to normal speed for about a second after that it started to putter again until I got it in my driveway. When I parked it, it was still puttering and then it stalled out. I tried to start it again after that and it did take of like a second and then went out again. Next day I gave it a jump and it would turn over but wouldn't start and since then it wont start. Please help me if someone has an answer for me on this. Thank you very much.

You need to make sure the battery has a full charge and the cables/wires are clean and tight on both ends.

If you can't check for codes, try some basic tests, have somebody crank the engine while you check for spark at the plugs. Check fuel pressure.

Well the fuel pressure was checked today. There is none. So I am thinking made the fuel pump?

Hi Cheryl, I'd still check for spark at the plugs. I don't have your vehicle info right in front of me. A sensor problem might cause no spark, no injector pulse, and other than the initial prime, the fuel pump may not run.

When you turn the key to the on position, no crank, can you hear the pump run for a few seconds? If you have narrowed it to the pump circuit, I'd check B+ and ground for the pump, first.

Although the symptoms are pointing to the fuel pump, I would still follow the basic diagnostic.

Backing up what my colleague is saying, you may also want to check your ASD relay under the hood. This relay powers the fuel pump and ignition system. It is inside your power distribution center under the hood.
