#264 of 279 same problem
May 22, 2012 (5:48 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 279 Low Tranny Fluid I think.
Jun 30, 2012 (1:17 am)
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?

#268 of 279 Error Code

The best answer to this problem, based of my experience of having 2 Sebrings and 1 Avenger is to erase the error code, drive the car for few kilometers and that's it.
#269 of 279 2000 Sebring Transmission- set of screws under solenoid pack?
Nov 28, 2012 (8:20 pm)
My 2000 Sebring I bought for my daughter is leaking transmission fluid. I bought and installed a new pan with a rubber gasket and filter. Still leaks, I removed the pan and added liquid gasket to both sides of the rubber gasket, Still leaks. I removed the pan and the rubber gasket, scraped clean the surfaces and used high temp red silicone gasket maker per instructions, still leaks. I think it might be coming from the solenoid pack that I think is just above the pan toward the front of the car. My question is what are the set of screws that are between the pan and the solenoid pack? There is about 5 and none are screwed all the way in. Are they suppose to be all the way in or are they tuning/adjuster screws. I really want to tighten them down.
If you have any suggestions for the leak would be appreciated. Car and tranny work great, just want to stop the leak.
#270 of 279 '06 Sebring Touring conv, trans issue
Dec 17, 2012 (10:46 pm)
Just bought this car, enjoying it! Problem: With only 31K miles, car seems to have a tranny issue. Doesn't happen consistently, just occasionally. Seems to be when it's been sitting for a while, like overnite. Car starts out in 1st gear, and then sticks, & does not shift smoothly into 2nd. Instead, it "slams" into 2nd. Or, it will do same, but between 2nd & 3rd. And then, at other times, it shifts smoothly like it's supposed to do (all gears). Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? What can be done to remedy? Would like to be a truly satisfied & happy Sebring owner.
