The check engine light is generally to alert you to some condition that is causing the emission control system to malfunction. This could be as simple as a gas cap that is not sealed properly to a fuel injection problem, i.e. to rich .

If the car runs normally with no noise, then try removing & replacing the gas cap correctly. The light should go out in a few minutes. If it doesn't and the engine runs normally, take the car to a service shop when it is convenient. Pepboys, Kragen and Autozone will check it for free.

If the engine runs rough, then slow down & drive carefully to avoid stressing the engine (i.e. no hard acceleration) and get it to a service shop as soon as possible - do not keep driving it, permanent expensive engine damage may result.

The Concorde could misfire for several reasons. Start by checking for proper fire to the spark plugs. Then check engine compression to see if a cylinder compression is down.

The way to know for sure is to contact any salvage yard and ask them to check engine interchangability in their HOLLANDER cross reference. Then you will know for sure.

Refine your question with following info: Is there a check engine light? are any fuses blown? Have recent repairs been made?

The TCM (trans computer) has detected a problem and set a code. This causes the trans to go into safe mode and not shift. Have it checked for codes.

Check for fuel and spark. Could be bad coil pack or fuel pump.

Check the sticker on the drivers door jamb. The original tire size should be listed there.

Engine running in Park. Pull the transmisssion dipstick (under the hood, driver side of motor). Wipe off stick, reinsert, pull out and check fluid level. The dipstick will have cold and hot levels.

The best place to find an engine diagram for a Chrysler Sebring would be in the owner's manual. If you do not have your, contact Chrysler or check your library.

Is there a Check Engine Light on? Some Chrysler models have a transmission crippler that when the Check Engine light goes on you must hobble it to the dealership. Thank God that they don't have these on more cars.Go to a trusted mechanic or the dealership, have them diagnose it. Unless you have an OBD II diagnostic then pull the code and google it.

The check engine light stays on when the engine computer has detected a malfunction and set a trouble code.
