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 283 2001 sebring lxi coupe 3.0 shift issues after motor swap
May 09, 2013 (12:58 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.

#280 of 283 Car Jerks when changing gears
Sep 14, 2013 (2:23 pm)
I have a 1998 convertible sebring and I just had the alternator changed, when I tried to drive it the car jerks really hard when changing gear and I hear a scratching sound. the car was not doing any of this before the alternator went out. I am bout to lose my mind. My husband searched on line and found that this car had a recall on it for the same problem in 2000 or 2001. called the Chrysler dealer hoping that they can come get this piece of and fix it with no out of pocket fee's for me.. .Very frustrated and don't think I will ever recommend or purchase another car every from Chrysler....

SAFETY RECALL – TRANSAXLE FLOOR SHIFTER IGNITION/PARK INTERLOCK
Dear DaimlerChrysler Vehicle Owner:
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle
DaimlerChrysler Corporation has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in
some of the following vehicles equipped with a floor mounted shifter and an automatic transaxle:
¾1993 through 1999 model year Chrysler Concorde, LHS and 300M, Dodge Intrepid and Eagle Vision
¾1995 through 1999 model year Chrysler Cirrus and Dodge Stratus
¾1996 through 1999 model year Chrysler Sebring Convertible and Plymouth Breeze
NOTE: Some of the above vehicles were involved in a previous recall which did not fully correct the
ignition/park interlock system.
The problem is... The transaxle floor shifter ignition/park interlock system on your
vehicle (identified on the enclosed form) may become inoperative. This
may allow the shifter to be moved out of the “Park” position with the
ignition key removed (or in the “Lock” position). It may also allow
the ignition key to be removed when the shifter has not been placed in
the “Park” position. If the shifter is not in the “Park” position, these
conditions could allow the vehicle to roll away and cause a crash
without prior warning.
and your dealer will do...
DaimlerChrysler will repair your vehicle free of charge (parts and
labor). To do this, your dealer will inspect the shift interlock system and
either modify or replace the transaxle shifter as required. Shifter
modification will take about ½ hour to complete. Shifter replacement, if
necessary, will take about one hour. However, additional time may be
necessary depending on how dealer appointments are scheduled and
What you must do to
ensure your safety...
¾ Simply contact your dealer right away to schedule a service
