#57 of 269 Stalling 07 Sebring
Mar 06, 2008 (11:17 am)
I bought my 2007 Chrysler Sebring brand new and it will be a year old on March 28th. Within the past 2 months my car has been stalling on me while I am stopped at a red light or in rush hour traffic. Most recently while going 40 mph on a highway where it just shut down. I have taken my car to the dealership 3 times now and the first 2 times I was told there was nothing wrong with it and that they couldn't get it to duplicate my problems. The last time I was there, the dealership said that something came back on the diagnostic test and they replaced an "environmental filter" not sure what that is and not much of a description on the invoice. I was told at my 2nd visit that Chrysler is aware of the problem so I assume there are others out there with the same problem. I feel like I have a LEMON! Is anyone experiencing similar problems and does anyone have any suggestions???

Before investing in any expensive diagnostics or parts try the following.
Disconnect the negative cable on your battery and leave it off for at least 10 minutes or more. After you reattach the cable start the car and let it idle for several minutes while the computer "relearns" the idle speed and things.
I can't guarantee it'll fix anything but it's a free troubleshooting idea.
On a more radical note, any chance there's water in the fuel and in really cold weather ice is blocking the fuel lines or filter? You said this just started happening within the last two months. When it is inside the service bay at the dealer the ice would melt and they couldn't reproduce the problem.

I own a 2008 Chrysler sebring convertible. 61/2 months old, 3900 miles. It has stalled 4 times . Once while I was stopped at a light and three times while driving it. I am now afraid to drive this car. Car dealership cannot find anything wrong with it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Did you try my suggestions in the previous message?
My 07 Sebring is 7 months old with around 6,000 miles. I've never experienced any stalling problems with it. I love how well it handles in the snow with the ESP and traction control.
I hope the love affair last for many years.

I bought an 07 back in Sept. I took it in for a noise in the front end and told them that the car stalled on me while sitting at a light. They told me that it may have been some dirt in the gas tank that caused it to stall. The second time I took it in, this time for the stalling, they fixed the throttle body. (whatever that is lol) Again it stalled on me within 2 weeks of getting it back. I took it in this morning and they told me that they cannot find anything wrong with it. I called the dealership I bought it from and they told me that Chrysler is aware of the problem. It may be that it just needs some kind of software update. If that does not work then they don't have any way to fix it. I am going tomorrow to have them do the updates and will be letting them know that if they dont fix it I want my money back. I will let you know if I find out anything new. it is just aggravating!!

I wonder if these stalling problems can be traced to a certain engine. Is it the 2.4L, the 2.7L or the 3.5L that is having the majority of the problems?
Mine is the 3.5L and no stalling issues at all.

I am searching for the same answer. I have a 1999 Chrysler Sebring, which I have loved for 4 years now. Lately it stalls while I am driving it--twice it left me in a dangerous situation, including today in traffic. Mechanics cannot find anything wrong with it, it starts up just fine for them. It will run fine, for a couple of days, or a couple of weeks, then out of the blue, it dies in traffic. Desperately seeking an answer...thanks.

I took my 07 Sebring to the dealership last week Thursday. It hasn't stalled on me since they did the PCM update but it is still have issues. (like sputtering at stops and now my RPM's are jumping while coasting at 30mph) So I have contacted an atty and Chrysler and I am now in the process of trying to return my car and get my money back.

I am having the same problem with my 2006 convertible with 20,000 miles. It has been back to the dealer three times now and they tell me nothing shows up on a code. It will run great for about three weeks and then it starts to stall and buck and feel like it's going to stall out. I've had it with the dealership. They keep my car for three and four days and then tell me there is nothing wrong. One of us is going to get into a serious accident because of this problem and maybe then someone will listen. Let me know if you get any satisfaction.
