#84 of 279 Noise Coming From Transmission Gear Shift
Oct 13, 2006 (6:27 am)
Hi. I have a 2004 chrysler sebring. It has 50,000 miles on it. When I first get in the car, crank the engine, and put it in gear (any gear), I hear a "click" as the car goes into gear. I only hear this noise when the car has not been driven for a few hours. I also heard it once or twice as I was backing into my garage after driving it for a while. The transmission fluid level looks fine.. The car drives fine so far. This mainly only occurs when I first start the car after it has been sitting for a few hours.. This has been going on for at least a month now. Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

Hi. I have a 96 chrysler sebring that I love and Im running into a problem. The problem is it wont go out of first gear. Ill be driving down the road just fine and then the RPMs will go sky high then bam go into first gear. Wen I turn the car off and let it site for a while, start it back up it will drive fine the do it all over again. I was told its the censors, is this true and wear is it at?

Just needed to have a new rebuilt tranny put in my 2.7 v-6 at 68,000. Fluid looked clean, ran fine until suddenly one day the check engine light came on, I pulled a code 700 from the self diagnostic check, started to wine, shift erratically, then finally go into limp mode. The shop said there was metal shavings in the pan. My suggestion, be very diligent in your tranny flushes and changes on this model. They recommend every 36,000. I Know I will be doing it. The sad thing is I just bought the car and it was 10 days and 800 miles outside the dealer warranty.
#87 of 279 2001 LXi Coupe Transmission noise on startup
Jan 25, 2007 (8:21 am)
When it is cold out I get a loud noise on startup that appears to becoming from my transmission. It is a rumbling, almost like a fan rubbing against a housing. The sound goes away once the engine is warmed up. I had a new timing belt installed thinking that might be the cause. If I shift into neutral the sound goes away. Car has 107000 miles. Shifts fine, fairly quiet on the highway.
#88 of 279 2002 sebring transmission
Jan 26, 2007 (9:32 pm)
i too have a 2002 sebring it has 73,000 miles and needs a new transmission. started out not shifting into gear from park to drive. my husband checked the fluid level and it was low. then it started jerking when it would go into low gear, when slowing down.then we noticed it was leaking underneath. took it to the dealer and they said it had no fluid and they tried replacing the pan or something i really don't know what it was. then they said it needs a whole new transmission gonna cost 3,000 dollars!! have alot of people had problems with this transmission? i am curious as to whether this is a wide spread problem.

#90 of 279 Why would my 2002 Sebring suddenly stop shifting???
Jan 25, 2007 (3:12 pm)
The other morning while I was driving to work I was going around 40mph when suddenly my 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible died. When I came to a stop I was able to start the car again. The engine sounded OK and I didnt find anything fluids under the car. When I attempted to drive the car again it wouldnt shift out of 1st gear. It is an automatic. The speedometer stopped working and the digital shift display (PRND23) has all the squares are lit up. I recently had to have the starter fuse replaced and I know the mechanic checked the electrical wiring. I have replaced all the fuses just in case including the PCM/ASD fuse as well as the ASD relay. Does anyone know what has happened. I dont have the $$$ to have a shop look at it since I just spent $136 to have a .50 cent fuse replaced last week. Please help.
#91 of 279 How hard is it to change the speed sensor in a 2002 Sebring??
Jan 31, 2007 (7:42 pm)
I dont have the $$$ to bring it to a shop and have them fix it. How hard is it to locate and get to the transmission to change the speed sensor? I am a car idiot and need as much help as possible. Besides how hard can it be to change a sensor?

I also have a 2002 sebring with 82,000 mile and have been experiancing the SAME ISSUES! My car consistently jerks back and forth when I'm coming to a stop or slowing down. It then started not going from reverse to drive. I noticed it was leaking a red fluid and took it in. Fluid was low. They reconnected a hose that had come loose from the transmission. They also did a diagnostic test on the tranny and said everything was fine. About 2wks later I took the car back in because it still was leaking. They examined it further and determined there is a small leak in the Selnoid Pak in the transmission and I need to take it an expert for replacment. My dilemma is after speaking with a few mechanics and asking if having this part replaced would correct my problems, they say possible unless there are other things going on with the transmission. Well, that does not help. One mechanic told me to fill up the fluid and if that corrects the problem then it is the selnoid, if not, then there is more going on there. From what I've heard, Chrysler Sebrings are notorouis for transmission problems. Wish I would have know that b4. (also have a problem with the air blower, won't work on speeds 1-3, only 4. There seems to be a lot of people with that issue also. The problems this car has seems to be wide speard!!)
