Print out the OBD1 codes from this or another site, and read them. This is done by turning the key on and off 3 times, rapidly, and watching the flashing light, probably the check engine light. I'd guess that you have a cracked or otherwise inoperative O2 sensor, $85 . This is the one item I actually do buy from Chrysler, and I buy them by VIN#. O2 sensors REALLY can affect your mileage. My experience with aftermarket ones is not good.
