#268 of 283 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 283 2000 Sebring Transmission- set of screws under solenoid pack?
Nov 28, 2012 (7:20 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 283 '06 Sebring Touring conv, trans issue
Dec 17, 2012 (9:46 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.

How did you get this problem fixed? My Chrysler just started doing the same thing.

Since my problem is an intermittent one, I'm still dealing with it. I think I know it's cause. (I have an extended warranty with my car, but the car needs to exhibit the problem when it's in the shop to be fixed.) But, I have reason to believe that the shift solenoid pack body needs to be changed.

I have a 2003 Chrysler sebring, So my car has done this too and eventually it stopped shifting, couldnt shift into to drive almost like it was in neutral, I had to literally fill the transmission multiple times.. to find out it was the shift sylanoid pack, once I got that fixed my car was no longer leaking and the clunking stopped it is the shift sylnoid. its almost like you want the car to break but it wants to drive while your breaking... need to get that fixed immediately because it will eventually cause engine problems.
