#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.

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.
#278 of 279 2001 sebring lxi coupe 3.0 shift issues after motor swap
May 09, 2013 (1:58 pm)
I have a 2001 chrysler sebring lxi coupe 3.0. My buddy owned the car right before me and when he had it it drove fine until the motor blew in it. We swapped the motor out and when the swap was in process the Output shaft speed sensor was snapped. No big deal I went and bought a new one after we found it via a code scanner when the car would not shift. So after replacing it the car still wont shift and the code for the output shaft speed sensor still pops up after it gets cleared. I ran through the wiring and it doesnt seem any thing is pinched or anything like that. Does any one have any idea what could be causing this. If i drive it down the road and get into the throttle alittle it will jolt into second, from there i can manually shift it into third. and when i slow down it will now downshift unless I downshift it via pulling the gear shift down into second.. doesnt seem to go down to first. (the motor came out of a Mitsubishi but from every thing i know about it the motors should be able to swap with no issues.
