#117 of 159 Check Engine Light/P0303 Code
Jan 04, 2010 (12:44 am)
I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring. The check engine light came on. Went to Auto Zone and they connected hand held diagnostic computer which showed P0303 Code which says #3 Spark Plug is misfiring. We changed the plugs, the wires and the spark module and it still continues to stay on. Now my blower on the ac and heater only works on high setting. Their is an exhaust smell when engine is starting and it is idling really rough. Any suggestions or comments?

1998 Chrysler Sebring
6 Cyl. 2.5L
Just bought this car for my Daughter and have had the following done with no results. (paid $1500.00, but put $695.00 on sales slip to help with sales tax, got boned)
Replaced plugs, rotor, dist. cap., wires
Checked out misfire Cyl 5, codes PO300 & PO305 found.
Leak down test (Good) for Cyl.5
Compression Test 172
Replace lower and upper intake Gaskets
Swap Injector & Spark Plug 5 & 6 No Change.
I also had to replace the Cat. Converter because it was broken up inside, the guy at the Garage said that could have been from the injector at 5 shooting to much gas and overheating the Cat.
Garage said the computer seems as if it was replace at some time because there is a sticker on it that says it has to be programed and New cars do not have these stickers. It only misses after being warmed up for 15-20 min. and only when idling not when it's being driven. Seems to be terrible on Gas.
He suspects a wire could be the problem but says it could take days to find it. I'm already into this thing for $1200.00 (parts & labor) on the of the $1500.00 I paid.
Any help would be appreciated

Hi.. I know this post is old, so I'm curious if this got resolved.
My car seems to be acting the same way, reading a cyl 6 misfire though. What seemed to be the root of the problem for you in this case??
#122 of 159 99 Sebring LXI won't crank
Aug 12, 2010 (10:59 pm)
I have a 99 Sebring LXI 6cy and it keeps shuting off. I have done a tune up, replaced the distributor and cap, Changed the fuel filters and it won't stay on. Sometimes it runs for a day and then shuts off or runs for 2-10mins and then shuts off. I have noticed that sometimes it jerks then shuts down or it will cut off completly. Also when I try to crank it the rpm stick doesn't move at all and the brake light appears on the dash. I'm so lost.
Can someone help????
#123 of 159 SEBRING DISASTER
Sep 28, 2010 (10:57 pm)
My 1997 Sebring 93K is going through many of the mysterious and frustrating problems detailed on this forum. For the moment, replacement of the CRANK SENSOR seems to have eliminated the stalling out problem. However the same day that problem was possibly fixed, the "CHECK ENGINE" light came on and stayed on. So now it is back to STS to check the codes. The interior lights sometimes work, often don't and when I open the trunk, the alarum goes off by itself. CHRYSLER SEBRING IS A MAJOR DISASTER AND I WILL NEVER, EVER BUY A CHRYSLER PRODUCT AGAIN. What really hurts is that Chrysler (dealership and hq) doesn't even acknowledge the huge volume of similar problems registered on this forum. There should be a recall. SHAME ON CHRYSLER, A COMPANY THAT DESERVES TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS.

I'm not trying to minimize your frustration, because I totally understand that these problems are irritating, and can be hard to diagnose or expensive to fix. However, you are talking about a vehicle that is now 14 model years old. No car is warranted for life, and to be honest, if I found a vehicle model that was consistently trouble-free for 14 years, I'd rush out and buy that model today.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a recall, as these issues aren't likely to be traceable to an initial manufacturing defect, and I've never heard of a model year that far back being recalled.
I do hope that you find easy and inexpensive resolutions to the problems you're experiencing.

I have a check engine light that stays on all the time. It goes off for maybe 2 weeks, then comes on and stays on.
Can someone tell me what may be the problem.

I would suggest that you take it to your local Advance Auto Parts and run a diagnostic and see which codes come up. They do this for free. My sebring did the same thing and it turned out to be a spark plug misfire that randomly made my check engine light come on.
