#257 of 283 2002 Chrysler Sebring trans won't shift
Oct 15, 2011 (12:34 am)
My Grandsons 2002 Sebrings trans won't shift in any gears. It acts like it is in nuetral. He was driving down the freeway and with no warning all of a sudden there was no gears. We had it towed to a shop and the mechanic said the trans needs to be rebuilt and wants $1400 to do it. We had it towed back home because I don't have that kind of money to fix it. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem? I find it hard to believe that it needs a new trans or a complete rebuild. I am desperate to have it fixed because he is driving my car now! PLEASE HELP

Hey sandym23 I have a 2001 Sebring Coupe LXI with the 3.0 liter V6. Mine did the exact same thing at 122k miles. I was driving down the interstate and it was like the car was put into neutral. I had it towed to the guy that works on all my cars. At first he though it was the computer that controls the trans but it wasn't that. Now I don't know if you have the four door or the two door coupe but he told me that my trans was a sealed unit and that he couldn't even rebuild it. We decided to find a good used trans and swap it out. That only cost me about 900 bucks verses swapping it with a rebuilt one at the tune of 2,000 bucks. I was told there was some kind of flat bearing that went out. I would suggest finding a shop that would swap it out with a used transmission. Mine has been running fine since and that has been over 2 years ago. I hope this has helped you some.

#264 of 283 same problem
May 22, 2012 (4:48 am)
2 problems with my 2 cars Sebring 2007 & Sebring 2008:
1. The downshifting from 2nd to 1st is a constant problem; the car almost suddenly stops.
2. When put on "D" the car doesn't move forward unless I push the gas paddle a little bit.
I live in Libya, so please help me tell the mechanics what to do.
#266 of 283 Low Tranny Fluid I think.

My car doesn't want to move after I reverse or make hard stops. I have to give the petal a little gas before it jerks back in to gear and starts moving again. I think its low transmission fluid, but i'm not sure I only put a quart of trans fluid in and its still doing it. Do I need more or is it something else?
