If a 1999 Chrysler Sebring convertible will not put out heat and it is not the thermostat or coolant level what is the problem?
I have the same problem I am ready to jack the chrysler up and install a Toyota underneath it
How do you properly change the coolant and thermostat on a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible with a V6 2.5 liter MPI engine?
Usually removing the radiator drain plug or lower radiator hose. Make sure to have a drain pan large enough to hold the coolant. The thermostat is usually on the upper radiator hose, but shouldn't need replacing unless it is defective. Better yet, get yourself a Chilton service manual for the Sebring, they aren't expensive and well worth it.
Follow hose from radiator to engine. The hose at top of radiator near coolant reservoir tank. Where it connects to engine is where the thermostat is. There are two screws. Stripped mine. You know its the thermestat because the hose going there stays hard after running engine for a while, and you would be able to squeeze it if the thermostat opened up.
The engine thermostat is located in a thermostat housing, located below the throttle body. REMOVAL Drain cooling system to the thermostat level or below. Remove inlet hose and coolant elbow from thermostat housing. Remove thermostat assembly, and clean sealing surfaces. INSTALLATION Install thermostat into the recess in the thermostat housing. Install inlet elbow and tighten the bolts to 12 Nm (133 inch lbs ) . Fill cooling system. standing on the drivers side, looking at…
Owner's manual says every five years and then every two years after the initial change. Manual also recommends HOAT coolant, such as Valvoline G-05 or Mopar HOAT coolant(sold at Chrysler dealers). DO NOT used Dexcool. It is really bad on Chrysler internal parts. Chrysler also recommends not using the traditional green coolant. Many coolant manufacturers (Prestone and Peek)now have 'universal' coolant, which is supposed to be compatible with all makes, but the choice is up…
Will adding dexcool antifreeze to existing coolant in a 2007 chrysler sebring 4 cylinder hurt the motor?
No Heat can be caused by a low coolant levels, bad Thermostat or Water pump, plugged heater core or heater hoses. For the most part my sister had this problem with her SeaBring Convertible after I replaced the Thermostat and flushed the system the heater worked. It is plausible as the car ages the AC / Heat door may stop moving to the correct position which can also cause low heat or temperature level. Playing…
Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from radiator remove housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose- note how thermostat is installed Clean both surfaces Replace thermostat and gasket Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an "airlock" Start engine Check for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Re-check coolant level
