The sludge issue is a major problem with the 2.7 liter engine. Chrysler generally does not honor the warranty unless the customer can prove proper maintenance. Unfortunately, you appear to fall into this category. I suggest that you switch to synthetic oil and change the oil very frequently (say 1,000 to 2,000 mile intervals) for the next several oil changes. Hopefully, this will help clear up the sludge problem. Good luck.

Thank you for the advise and quick response. I am new to using these forums. I'm usually the guy the neighbors come to with automotive questions, but this engine with it's strict tolerances is a whole new monster to me.

I have the same problem with my 1999 Sebring JXi. Did you ever find the locaiton of your problem, Jeff? I've checked out the washer motor and it works fine. The water lines are clear. The wipers work fine. I assume my problem must be a break in the wiring between the switch and the pump motor. My dealer charges $80/hour to check wiring and he says it could take up to 4 hours to find the break, and then I would have to pay for replacing the bad section. Is there a common place where the washer wiring has gone bad on other Sebrings, or will I have to check out the entire circuit?

#81 of 123 Front strut tower brace-'01 Sebring Convertible

Has anyone installed a front strut tower brace on a Sebring convertible? Supposedly this brace will limit cowl and hood shake when driving over bumpy roads. Also, anyone know where to purchase one that works?

I am a very happy owner of a new Sebring. I would recommend this car to anyone who likes a bit of luxury, fuel economy and good value for the money. The only tiny complaint I have is the design of the front cup holders, but this is very minor compared to the major plusses of this car (and no, I don't work in the auto industry). I plan to own this car a very long time.
