10W-30 oil is preferred in the 3.2/3.5L engine
If it is like my 98, you need to jack up the driver side front wheel and remove the wheel. There is a plate in the fender well that needs to be removed and then you can get at… the battery which sits in a tray in the front fender in front of the driver's side front tire.
5 W 30 or 10 W 30
5w30 Engine oil... "Engine oil" -- funny, but not an answer. I have a Chrysler Sebring convertible with the 2.7 engine that just turned over 200,345 miles. A mecha…nic told me my engine is a flawless as it is because I have been using Mobil One oil in it for the past 5 years. - Howard
Depending on which engine is in the 2006 Chrysler Sebring has, the engine takes between 4.5 and 5 quarts of oil. Check the oil with the dipstick before adding all of the o…il, and add more as needed. Do not overfill.
The 2002 2.7l calls for 5-30, but in 2004 Chrysler went to 5-20w oil. I use the 5-20w mobil 1 synthetic oil in my 2002 with no problems. I go 5000 miles on an oil change…. 5-20w will help the fuel economy a little, too.
All vehicle manufacturers recommend DOT 3 Brake Fluid. Find it at your local parts store. Just ask a salesperson for brake fluid, they know what you need.
I have the same vehicle and have been doing my own oil changes since I bought the car. It's really easy, you just need about 30 mins free time. First, a few sticky points.….. The oil filter is mounted VERY close to one of the oxygen sensors. I have found the only mainstream filter that screws on without any removal of the sensor is the FRAM brand. Mobil 1, nope, Bosch, nope... Also, the engine in your car is quite sensitive to maintenance done "on the cheap." I switched my oil changes to Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 5W-30 and the car runs WAY better. Less tappet clatter on cold starts, better oil pressure throughout oil life... the works. It's an extra few bucks that goes a long way. You'll need 5 quarts of oil and the filter - Roughly $30 in 2009 money. The oil change itself is easy as pie. Pop the hood and remove the oil cap. Lay down next to the passenger front wheel and stick your head against the front bumper. The oil pan is the first bowl shaped thing you can see... with a round indentation right in the middle. On the back, is the drain plug. It measures 17mm and should be replaced every few years so you have a new gasket on it. Remove it and allow the oil to drain. Next, moving towards the front, is the filter - sitting above the oxygen sensor in the exhaust header pipe. Unscrew by hand or use a filter wrench. Be gentle lowering it out the car - and clean up any oil that spills out onto the exhaust parts. While the main drain is still dripping, it's a good idea to check the filter to make sure the gasket came off and isn't stuck to the filter housing on the engine. Replace the drain plug on the oil pan. Tighten it up securely as you don't want to lose it going down the highway! But remember, not so tight that you can't get it back off in 3 or 4 months... Pre-fill the filter with about half a quart of fresh oil. Also put a bead of oil on the gasket. Screw on the filter, being careful not to cross thread. Tighten down to the filter manufacturers instructions (usually 3/4 to 1 full turn after the filter touches the housing/bracket. Put four quarts into the oil fill hole on top of the engine. Put the cap on and start the engine. The oil pressure light will go out right away, then the gauge will bounce up a few seconds later. Don't be alarmed if it takes a few seconds - it's just the filter filling up with new, nice oil. After a minute or so, park the car on a level surface and shut it off. Wait 5 mins and check the dipstick. The level should be right around the upper indent on the stick. Congrats, you just changed your oil!
Depending on the mileage, it may not be a smart investment. These cars have a terrible problem with timing belts breaking and this seemingly small problem can lead to bent val…ves thus requiring a complete engine replacement. If you research this particular problem you should get the answer your looking for. Hope this helps! Dawn
Any good quality API certified 5w30 should fill the bill. Be careful though the 2.7 motors are sensitive to sludge build up, just stay on top of your oil changes and you shoul…d be ok. I myself prefer a synthetic oil, its hard to argue their great benefits
The type of motor oil needed for a Chrysler Sebring will depend on the model and year of the vehicle. Most of the vehicles take 5w30.
