It sounds like you water pump stopped functioning locked up and caused the timing belt to break. Now if it turns over but no compression, you may have gotten lucky and the valves aren't bent. But usually they always bend in this case, and a head job would be necessary. Removing the plastic covers on the left side top of the engine will reveal the broken timing belt. Good luck Steve E

#256 of 279 2007 chrysler sebring engine light
Sep 12, 2011 (6:59 pm)
my 2007 Chrysler sebring shows the engine light and the techs said it was a transmission solenoid error code. the solenoids were replaced twice (AAMCO & dealership) and the code is still there. after a week of it being at the dealership, they said it was the main engine control wire harness giving the error to the PCM (pin 53 was broken). the pin is for the solenoid wire to the PCM. they wanted 1200$ to fix so i told them to F off. i fixed the broken pin and i still have the check engine light and my car is still stuck in reset mode (wont shift out of 2nd). what else can i do?!?!
