I have a 98 convertible and having serious problems with it. It has been at the dealership for 3 weeks and they cant figure it out! When you first start the car after sitting over night it will run just fine for about 5 min. then when you give it gas it stalls and wants to die. It will sit and idle but when you give it gas it stalls and dies! It will drive down the road at about 15 mph but give it anymore gas than that it stalls and dies if you dont let off of it! They have replaced (so far) MAP sensor, fuel pump and filter, catalytic converter, fuel line that was bad, nothing has worked. It is showing no codes, dealership says now they do not know what is wrong! Can anyone help?? They are now leaning towards the distributor???

I hate to say this but fire 'em and take it some place else.. When you plug in the OBD2 diagnostic computer and it shows no codes then the problem has to be an obvious mechanical issue.. Like they didn't bleed off the air out of the injector rail or it has a vacume leak some where in the air intake system. Even if the engine is misfiring the computer will show it.. I'm really surprised that the O2 sensors aren't coughing up codes though.. If it were a distributor issue then what does the timing look like on the timing gun? BTW replacing the catalytic converter for this issue was really streaching it. At the end of the day sound like they are shotgunning the repair not troubleshooting it..

I was the original owner of a 2001 Sebring Convertible. Changed oil regularly according to specs. In 2005 engine seized with 90,000 miles. Chrysler gave me nothing other than scrap value. Will never buy another Chrysler product.

You probably had the notorious 2.7 V6 engine that was prone to oil sludge. There are numerous cases with this engine self-destructing. See attached link.

You really need a trouble light or voltmeter to trouble shoot this one. If voltage is getting to the WW motor and the ground connection is good, the motor is probably bad. If there is no voltage at the motor, the electronics or wiring is faulty. If you don't I have anything to measure voltage, try dis-connecting the wiring to the motor and connecting battary voltage through a fuse then directly to the WW motor. I assume that the washer fluid is topped off and squirting and that everything on the same fuse is working. Isaac
