I have an 2004 sebring gtc. I have found through research that these engines are really bad about engine sludge--which could definitely cause stalling...be sure to be vigilant with oil changes and oil treatments such as Lucas may help.

GET SOME MOTORKOTE AND PUT IT IN THE ENGINE OIL, TRANSMISSION, AND POWER STEERING IT WORKS / MOTORKOTE.COM ALSO IF YOU DRIVE CAR AND IT HAS TOO SIT FOR A WHILE BEFORE IT STARTS SEE IF ITS MISSING A HEAT SHEILD FOR STARTER. ALSO ALL THIS STALLING AND NO ONE SAID ANYTHING ABOUT 02 sensors. I WOULD CLEAN AND PUT DIELECTRIC GREASE IN ALL PLUGES IF YOU THINK MOISTURE IS AFFECTING YOUR CAR. ALSO CORROSINE ON BATTERY POSTS CAN LET LIGHTS WORK BUT NO START.

i have 98 sebring lxi. . . .. yesturday i went to start my car and it wouldn't it just clicked like the battery had been flooded. we jump started it and let it run for bout 5 mins. i went to turn around and half way through the turn it died. so after work we jumped it again let it stay connected for a few min then let it run for about 15 minutes. again went to turn around and half way through it dies. i thought it was the alternator. today my friend comes to take the alternator off to get a new one and car starts right away no problems. she revs it a little, turns it around no problems....so we take it to auto zone down the street to have the alternator tested. (also for a year check engine light was on, now it is off and when tested says passed no codes). battery wasn't charge enough to test the alternator. take it out and inside to charge and it just wont charge. buy a new battery install and test the alternator. passed fine. back up left and went home. my friend goes to turn it around and goes from drive to reverse and it dies. put in nuetral restart go to reverse and is fine. drive down the street go to turn around and again from drive to reverse it dies. drive around the block and is fine. later go to make same turn around and from drive to reverse it dies. start in nuetral go to reverse and is fine. at a stop light it hesitatated a little before it went. got to where we were going and just to see i went to reverse from drive and it was fine. the only difference was i went in a straight line and didn';t have the wheel turned at all. . . . . could this be my power steerring or something else. my dad and several mechanic friends are at a loss and don't know what it could be. . . . . . . please help!!!!!

I have just started having the same problem with my 2008 Sebring. Will lose power suddenly, and idiot light comes on. My mechanic has replaced to different items in the last month, after reading codes. Have had it back for 2 days and light came back on this am, loss of power, etc. Love the car , but got it because my old car was strting to nickle and dime us to death. Now don't know what to do, as this one seems to be doing the same thing.

the 2008 and some 2007's had a electrical recall. I think there are 8 total recalls. But here is the link on 4 of them .. See if yours is part of the recall and if they will repair the car if not save your money and sell it looks at KIA, Honda, Toyota or Ford
Like most car makers they choose a small range of cars using the vin numbers then say Oh your car is not part of the recall in order to save money. If they get caught or sued then they EXPAND the recall like what happened to Honda and Toyota lately. Chrysler used to mean quality uo until the mid 70's when to Cordoba / Aspen model came out then it was just straight down hill!
