When a car die's when driving it could be one of 3 things and its related system. #1 is the engine getting air? is the ir filter clogged. #2 is it getting fuel, and is all related parts working i.e. fuel pump working? Fuel injectors working? Is the electronics controling it working properly? #3 is the ignition system working and this usually is the one to blame because of the complicated electronics involoved with it. But you can surely test for the simple things of all 3, after that its to the machanic and trying to find the cause. It may be even a frayed wire on your battery connection. The best thing is maybe look at the simple things first that you can inpect visually & test yourself.
No. Not until now, I haven't had any bad experiences driving my sebring.
crankshaft posistion sensor
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
you may want to get the battery checked or get the ingition looked at
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.
Why engine stalls on 1993 Chrysler Intrepid while driving and sometimes at stops?
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.
If it blows while driving, I would replace the fuel pump. If it blows when trying to start, I would replace the starter.
Have engine computer tested
It is important for a vehicle to run smoothly, and give the passengers a smooth ride. The cause of this vehicle jerking could be due to lack of electrical flow, lack of fuel or the computer going bad.
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.
Front Wheel alignment
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.
Something is wrong. Take them apart and see what happened and why. Possibly one of the metal shims slipped out of place during the install. Don't keep driving knowing something isn't right with the brakes.
lots of strain on the engine i would imagine..
check belt maybe slipping Be sure the coolant level is full
I just had this happen to me, it was the crankshaft sensor. If you have the 2.5L the motor will need to be cool to work on it, the sensor is under the exhaust pipe on back side of transmission. Good luck
A new Fuel pump relay fixed this problem for me.
cutting fuel while driving
The only dangers that might arise from driving a vehicle with a failing power steering pump is burning up/breaking the belt that is driving the pump IF and ONLY IF the pump seizes up. The other problem you might have is the increased effort to steer the car. As long as the increased effort while driving is not a problem you can at least drive it to a service station to get it repaired.
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.
Could be a plugged up fuel filter.
The Alero is made by Oldsmobile not Chrysler. My first suspicion would be a failed fuel pump or clogged fuel filter.
This isn't a complete question but what I think you're asking is what happens if you cut off people while you drive. The answer to that is you might get reported to law enforcement, and go to jail for driving negligently.
