I have a ’95 Cirrus LX V6 (with 150k miles) has been having the same — it just shuts off while driving and then to start right afterward. No Engine light beforehand and no codes were stored. setting for a while, the car would start again.

Initially this problem only seldomly but over months it gradually became frequent.

After doing a lot of on the Internet and troubleshooting with the manual, the prime suspects as follows:

1) Crankshaft Position (mounted onto the engine under the distributor). I replaced and the car started but it didn’t last before it abruptly quit This time, whatever was finally broke for good; the car no longer start even sitting for a couple days.

2) Camshaft Position sensor ignition coil — are in the distributor on the 95 Cirrus LX 2.5L I replaced the distributor (cost $225). The car still would not though!

Using the electrical in the Haynes manual, I began and found that all of the top three items use the same +8VDC pin 44 of the Powertrain Control Module I was only reading +4.88VDC way too low for for the two ‘Hall Effect’ solid-state to work properly.

I didn’t want to spend of dollars buying a new PCM if I wasn’t sure it was the problem so I took out my PCM up front between the fuse box and the air on the driver’s side and can be removed easily). Since this is a electronic device, being an technician, I tried an old trick and the PCM for more than 12 hours so the board and solder joints contract and make a better I then reinstalled the PCM and tried the engine —

and it fired right up and ran smoothly.

So, the PCM (P/N PO4606064) ended up my problem.

NOTE: There are two models of PCM for this car. One is for cars with Firm Suspension (FFS) and another for those without; mine NOT HAVE FFS. Make you get the correct one.

Also, on one of the on the Internet for another person this same problem, a Mechanic stated that Feel Suspension (FFS)’ was the thing as Speed Sensitive Steering (SSS). I confirmed the Chrysler experts that IS NOT THE CASE! They are separate — according to my VIN, my car not have FFS but it has SSS.
