My Chrysler has suffered from a “second mile syndrome” for several years that comes and goes. Right now it has been doing it for about 6 months.
When I start the car in the morning it runs fine.
When I start it again later in the day after work to go home, it will go fine for the first mile. For the second mile it will kick, sputter and try to stall. After the second mile it will run fine for as long as you go.
I believe the problem has to do with the engine temperature and sensors that change the gas to air ratio. It seems to happen just when the temperature touches the “normal” range.
My mechanic that has been repairing my cars for years is stumped. Thru the years, he has replaced the computer brain twice, every sensor he can find, the electronic distributor, thermostat, etc. with no success.
All articles with stalling seem to deal with the problem happening all the time. That does not apply to my problem during the “second mile.”
