It could be any of several problems, anything from fuel delivery problems to ignition failure. Solid state (transistorized) ignitions can fail when a single transistor breaks down from heat. Just turning on a transistor can cause heat to build up so it doesn't necessarily take a lot of time for the get hot enough to fail. The problem can also be something as simple as a blocked fuel filter or a weak fuel pump. At this point, you'll need to find out if the problem is fuel delivery or igniton. When the vehicle fails check to see if there is a spark after the engine dies. quickly pull a spark plug wire and connect it to a spare sparkplug, set the sparkplug on a metal part of the engine then attempt to start the engine while an you or an assistant watch the sparkplug. If you don't see a sparkplug you might have a problem with a component of the igniton. You can also check the fuel pressure by connecting a fuel pressure gauge to the test port on the fuel line under the hood. You can also connect an on-board diagnostic scanner to the computer to see what codes, if any, are stored. If you would like to test a few things and ask some more questions later, feel free to contact me at: email@example.com
No. Not until now, I haven't had any bad experiences driving my sebring.
crankshaft posistion sensor
you may want to get the battery checked or get the ingition looked at
When a 1998 Chrysler Sebring makes noise while shifting the transmission should undergo a fluid change. Dirty fluid can cause hard shifting. The engine should also be given a diagnostics test to see if all the sensors are functioning correctly.
lots of strain on the engine i would imagine..
check belt maybe slipping Be sure the coolant level is full
My 2002 Chrysler Sebring has 154K miles on it and the front end rattles when it goes over bumps. When I jack the car up and push in and out and side to side on the wheels their is no movement. Nothing seems to be lose when I pull on the front end. I had the same problem on my 2002 Sebring Lxi Sedan. Problem was worn swaybar linkage and bushings. I had the linkage and bushing replaced and the rattling disappeared.
It should start to make a whistling sound when the pump is hot or fuel is low in the tank. Replace the Fuel Filter while you have the tank out.
Check the 1989 Honda Accords timing. If the engine has jumped time then the engine will buck and sputter.
I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible. If you turn off the ignition and remove the key while the headlights are on, then turn off the headlights, the headlights will stay on for 30 seconds and turn off. You can avoid this by turning the lights off before you turn off the car or by switching them on and off again.
Enough to get the level to the safe zone on the dipstick while idling in park. It depends on why you are adding. If you changed the filter in the pan, start with 4 quarts.
If your car just shuts down even on the highway it is most likely the cam position sensor, I needed to replace mine for the same thing
There were many people injured while building the Chrysler Building. There were seven people killed while building the Chrysler Building..
13-14.5 while running
Depends on what you mean by "reset". Are you referring to the counter in the dashboard odometer display? Just hold the button down for 5 seconds while the gas meter is displayed.
It depends on the indicator. Check engine means the engine computer has detected a malfunction. The oil can is an oil pressure problem, a battery is a charging problem, etc
The light comes on and stays on when the computer detects a malfunction and sets a code. The system needs checked with a scan tool to know possible causes.
When fuel lines freeze, a vehicle will have a hard time starting on a cold morning or may sputter and stop while driving. Once unfrozen, the vehicle should run properly.
Could be a plugged fuel filter.
No - that would defeat the object of having an alarm in the first place !
youre driving a ford!
could be plugged fuel filter Plugged fuel filter is a good possibility but if that's not it here's another. I recently had a similar problem (97 sebring convertable) where it my car would stutter while driving, ended up needing new plug wires as two of the old ones were failing intermittantly, causing incosistent firing of the plugs.
The fuel tank sending unit(float) is probably bad.
If it blows while driving, I would replace the fuel pump. If it blows when trying to start, I would replace the starter.
I had the same problem 3 times on my '97 Sebring. Twice, I replaced the crank position sensor with the (lower-priced) after-market sensors. They worked for a while, about a year and they go bad again. Finally, I replaced it with a Chrysler part, and have had no problem since. I hate to say it... but for the difference in price, this is one part I would highly recommend spending the extra money.
