I am not a mechanic, but own a 1999 Sebring. The "Check Engine" comes on for a myriad of reasons. The only way to find the fault is to read the code. This can be done using an engine code scanner, either do-it-yourself or taking the vehicle in to the shop. A third method involves turning the ignition key in a specific sequence which causes the light to flash the numeric code - kind of like a crude Morse Code. For a 1999 Sebring, a common code is the "multiple cylinder misfire." This just says that one or more spark plug(s) failed to fire. If this occurs when changing speeds (entering or exiting a highway, for example) then the EGR valve may be the culprit. I've read that it goes bad on these vehicles. If the vehicle has more than 70k miles, then the fuel filter needs to be replaced, per the maintenance schedule. A clogged fuel filter may also cause piston misfires. Good luck.

FOR FREE YOU CAN TAKE YOUR CAR TO ADVANCED AUTO AND THEY WILL READ THE CODES AND TELL YOU WHAT IT IS CALLING FOR FOR FREE. AND ALSO RESET THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT IF YOU WANT THEM TO. BUT THEM YOU WOULD KNOW WHAT THE CAR IS TRYING TO TELL YOU. ALSO YOU CAN TRY TURNING THE CAR TO THE ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON ( WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE) AND IT WILL FLASH CODES ( BY HOW MANY TIMES THE SERVICE LIGHT FLASHS), JUST JOT DOWN THE NUMBER. IT WILL FLASH ONE OR TWO TIMES AND THEN START FLASHING BETWEEN ONE TO SIX TIMES. COUNT THE FLASH'S IN A ROW AND WRITE IT DOWN AND THAN WAIT AND SEE IF IT FLASH'S AGAIN AND WRITE THAT NUMBER DOWN, IT COULD TAKE A WHILE TO GET THIS DONE. BUT WITH INFORMATION IN HAND YOU CAN EITHER Google AND FIND YOUR ANSWERS OR GO TO ADVANCED AUTO OR A CAR PARTS STORE AND THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO TELL YOU WHAT IS GOING WRONG WITH YOUR CAR.
