Chrysler Cirrus:Distributor Shot Due To Engine Oil Overfilled?

Bad Effects Of Engine Oil Overfilled



Always fill engine oil as per mentioned in owners manual of the vehicle,don;t overfill it.
It will cause serious engine failure issues.


Vehicle was overfilled and driven few miles and after that 1998 Chrysler will not start at all.Local mechanic inspected the system and replied,its issue with distributor and needs to be replaced.

Now what model of distributor is required?



EXPERTS ADVISE:

As per car model and brand there is  one distributor available according to the factory parts catalog. 
And its easily available. Any parts store should be able to cross reference  and look up the correct aftermarket distributor for it. 

As per my auto garage repair experience for years.There are two different distributors used on the 2.5 engine but only one is available for your car. As per my knowledge 2.5L engine is a Mitsubishi built engine that Chrysler purchased for use in these cars. There was also a two door coupe version on the Sebring and Avenger that used the 2.5 and this car was completely built by Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi-built two door cars with a 2.5 did use a different distributor. 

So please make sure you get order correct distributor for your vehicle.Get it confirmed with the auto parts store.If the distributor that the parts store provides come wrong then I believe they either sent one for the Mitsubishi built car instead of your Chrysler built car, or they may have sent one for the wrong model year. The distributor that fits your car fits only the 1998-2000 model year 2.5.

Also as per my knowledge distributors were definitely a problem on these engines and it could very well be the issue. Some times new brand distributor also comes bad,I've seen some bad aftermarket distributors right out of the box, so it's definitely possible that it could still be the issue and the first one was bad. Aftermarket electrical parts do sometimes have issues, but a new distributor through a Chrysler dealer for your car runs right at $1,200 and that's pretty hard to swallow.


NOW, because you have already mentioned that problem is distributor, i gave details regarding distributor,But for the type of problem which you received there are many other possibilities too.

Also get it confirmed with your local mechanic that he's actually diagnosing the problem correctly and confirming the distributor is bad before replacing it. There are other things that can cause lack of spark also, including the crank sensor, powertrain control module, ASD relay or wiring issues, and even a jumped or broken timing belt.

So get this possibilities also checked.

This will help.
Thanks.
